I got my first coral about 2-3 weeks ago so I could see if I was doing everything correctly for them to survive. Well they didn't. They lasted about 10 days. In fact they looked like they were doing fine right up until I did a water change.
Very soon after adding in the water, they started curling up and that was the end of it.
So I figure it is something wrong with the way I changed my water.
Heres a couple things I wonder about
Do I need a PH
running while there is diminished water in the tank?
How slow do I need to add the new water to the tank?
I got a ton of micro bubbles in the tank while changing the water, are those dangerous? What I was hoping to do was siphon water slowly into the sump, and then the pump would push it up into the tank, but the sump was pumping very little water so it was creating a lot of the microbubbles.
