Tank size: 20g
Nitrate: 0 (questionable) Brown whispy algea present
Phosphate: 0 (questionable)
Placement is at the top, right under two koralia powerheads (a koralia 1 and a koralia 2) pointed to the surface opposing each other. A few other SPS
nearby at the top with it. No potential stingers, but there are mushrooms, zoas, and various LPS
in the tank.
Lighting is from a 24in 96W (4 bulb) T5 Current USA Sundial with 2-wavepoint blue bulbs, 1-URI aquasun, and 1-wavepoint 12000k bulb. These are all about 5-6months old. They are all being replaced by ATI bulbs (2-aquablue and 2-blue plus).
I moved the coral down to the lower portion of the tank.
I am running Clearmax (GFO
) in my Fluval 305 as well as some carbon. There is also a small mass of chaeto in the tank that has the output of the fluval 305 blasting it and a CFL bulb above the chaeto to light it.
Polyp extension has been very minimal since I brought it home, yet the others seem to have their polyps out 24 hours a day.
Not sure what kind this is. I am betting its not bonsai after looking that up and seeing the prices! I paid $20 for this one from my LFS
. Much larger than the $90 frags I see online, so I am guessing its some other purple acropora with green polyps.
