Yeah, the QT
is gone and truned into a sump/fuge.
Do not plan to QT
corals as this is the first I have ever heard of it. Just planned on doing a 2-4 hr(depending on water conditions) drip acclimation.
Actually, I broke down and bought my fist coral (candy coral) last night. Placed it in top 1/4 of tank right under the T-5 fixture. It opened up after about 1.5 hours. I will be closely monitoring the coral Beauty. Adding corals will be a slow process as I upgrade lighting and watch the CB.
I am in the process of updating all the lighting. For cost and the ability to spread out the cost over time I am going with the new coralife slim T-5 double fixtures. I have found the 48" for $52.99/ea at an LFS
. They are on 56W, but I have concluded(reading and advice) because of the output they are more equivalent to a pc
130w. My plan is to get 3-4 which will easily fit on my tank and replace the strip lights I have now. The one I do have so far has made a tremendous difference.
Coraline growth has alrady started to take off since I set up the tank. The 3 flower anenome which I have had for some time and I always thought looked now look even better.
No, I do not regularly clean the back glass, just sides and front. This is a new tank w/ overflow that replaced my 11 yr old 75g.
