The last tests where a will ago and we need to buy a new test kit for Ca
as its expired :S and the a pH test needs to be done, but Im in need to find the instruction sheet for my new test kit for pH so ill have to get back to you, we try to keep our salinity at 1.025-1.028 and we have had past problems yes some of them seem stable now, as we have only been dealing with SW
for about 3 years now.
As for leathers we only currently have a Kenya Tree in that (120) tank as we moved the Devils Finger to the Seahorse tank ( in hopes it will get better from the bit of change..) where its the same salinity but temp is a diff its 74F (its a 26gal+10galsump)and the 120 reef is 77 as seahorses need cooler, also in there tank is a carnation coral, and cabage coral
Kenya (in 120) seems normal growing, sheding, and such, opens everyday unless its shedding... had for a few years and has shed off peices that are now growing succesfully
Cabage (in SH) only had it 2 weeks now, was opening fine at first seems to not be really opening now, but not bleaching out like the devils finger is, and it has its long feeding tenticles out the other day, for a few days.. then didnt open so we moved it from its first placement- mid section of the tank on a rock, to the bottom.
Carnation (in SH) opens pritty much every day unless its shedding, onnly had a few months, sometimes it looks unhappy and sometimes its opens huge, then drops down lol seems kinda normal.
Lighting in 120 is 10 three foot t5 white bulbs, (5 on eachside) they are 12k. With vertex blue LEDs
and flow is Medium to High, mostly medium
Lighting in Seahorse is 2 one foot t5 white, 12K, and 2 blue one foot t5
and flow is low for the seahores, and medium at feeding time as we turn a fan on to move the food when feeding the sehores, so once to twice a day for about a half our..
Never seem to be able to keep SPS
, some Lps
for a while then they die for reasons unknown and some because of issues that have been fixed, like worms, water quaility at the time, other livestock in tank...etc
