There's 85# of base in the tank, 60# of LR
(30GR & 30KR from LR
.com) There are a bunch of clams that came aboard the rock. I'm at the tail end of my cycle. Ammo has been 0 for weeks now. My nitrites are just about to zero (also for weeks now) and my trates are around 5 or 10 (climbed up a week or so ago but have been holding fairly steady). The PH
don't change dramatically. My PH
is a little on the low side (?) at around 8.0 but it has been there from jump. Always the same. My alk
slowly drops as my calcium plummets. I have one golfball sized coral colony on one of my rocks (Cladocora) and two small colonies on another rock. There's another polyp or two near my big clam. Anything in there sound like it should be riffling through ca
? I *THINK* I'm seeing more purple on my rocks and am definitely seeing spots (lol) on one of my base rocks. What would qualify as heavy coraline growth?
