dominant and somewhere inbetween for a mixed reef. Also, for a tank in this situation I would break the cleaning down into biweekly events (the big stuff not normal maintenance) to keep from any major spikes. Like one 2 week period clean the rocks then part of the sand then the sump and then some more sand to really spread it out. Rushing in SW
99% of the time leads to trouble lol
Gotcha... The glass is horrid. That's my first priority... I don't mind some of the rocks... But I'd eventually like to totally replace the majority. I basically have a bunch of coral skeletons.... Not very appealing to me! So glass, sand & sump is what I will be putting more focus into
thank you so much for your help! I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed! I worry the starfish isn't eating and this blue fish has some funk on its face... Do you know what that black fish is? Would it be too soon to get something that eats aptasia? I read there are shrimps for that... It's everywhere
how often should I feed these guys and what should my light schedule look like??
