So here's a torch coral my hubby and son picked up. They were going get something cool easy and colorful and had to have this as it reminds my son of a nem. Does he look good? Will the torch get bigger. My hubby also said the it wasn't so open at the store? Also in my research said I should add iodine. ( I'm a little scared to do this as I've looked all over and can't find a iodine test and I don't wanna over do it as the bottle says to add everyday) also I use "sea water" from PETCO will that still have all the stuff salt mix does :dumb:. I also saw Kent's marine nano reef, its two bottles part a and part b. Its pose provide the essentials for small aquariums. Has any one ever used this? Also is distilled water ok for top offs?

Thank you. Do you give yours iodine supplement? We also have moved him so he's upright. Is it better that way or are they ok tilted. He wasn't leaning on any thing but I didn't know if they hadda be up right. Either way he opened 10 mins after being placed in the tank after accumulation. So I think he is happy

No need to supplement if you're using a good saltwater mix. Coral looks healthy. What kind of lighting do you have? Also i would top off with rodi water if you can get it.

I hadn't supplemented anything in my tank for almost a whole year. After a few tests came back with low alk and cal I started doing 2 part solution from B-ionic.

For the most part if your diligent with weekly water changes your nutrients will be replenished.

Just my opinion.
