Well new tanks are a little unstable so you`ll need to really keep up with water test and PWC`s. This should help greatly.

Thanks melosu58. I am very particular about water changes, and parameters and general cleaning of the tank. Being a newbie I just want to make sure there is not something I am missing. I am eager to see some softies thrive in the tank but not if it is to soon.

As of today, tree coral looks fuller and some zoas have opened up but most are either closed or opened up half way.

Tree still looks good, as for zoas, one frag is open and ther other remains half closed. My xenia is seems to stay closed during the day and open at night, which doesn't make sense. How long can they survive like that?

Some corals like Zoas can remain closed for impossibly long times. It took a full week for all of my new Zoas to open.
