Those corals/inverts will add virtually no bio load to your tank, so just acclimate them and put em in.
Sounds good my calcium is a low 360-380 according to my API test kit that I test with weekly I went to order a Salifert Calcium kit from Dr fosters and smith to double check my results but wont be in stock until 4/11 I want to get around 420Calcium for optimum growth. I will add a green brain coral next after I get used to things which I believe does absorb calcium (unsure). The 2.5gallon Aquadose drip system I am ordering is to minimize my top offs with a slow drip of RO
water for evaportation. I ordered the Kalkwasser to have incase I needed to add it to my top off water.
Just got an e-mail and needed to order something else to hit the $250 price point for free shipping so I adding on a Moon Coral Moon Brain - LPS Corals - Barrier Reef Aquariums
