I got three acros frags
from a LFS
on saturday. They were under XM 20K bubls and about 1" from the top of the water with the bulbs being 6-8" from the water surface. There was a ton of water flowing across them. I told the owner I had Coralvue 10K bulbs and he said to place the frags
as close to the surface as possilbe. Well my rock only goes a little past 1/2 up my 31" tank and I figured I'd be safe and just start them there due to the fact that 10K are usually more intense than 20k's. So now 2 of the frags
are starting to bleach on the tips. It doesn't appear that the skin is peeling off but I"m worried. The third was an awesome blue millipora which is still looking wonderful.
are a little low but not too bad at 375/2.5-3.0meq/l.
I"m not sure what I"m doing wrong here, they were acclimated very slowly.
