Okay, I picked up my first FOWLR
tank over the weekend. 55G tall w/ a 20G sump and 8G fuge and 110 lbs live rock (6 yrs old from established tank). I've tested all the parameters - what now? I'm not sure what my targets should be for alkalinity, calcium, and magnesium. At the moment the tank just has 3 clowns and a chromis but I'll be adding a cleaning crew and a few more fish, and would like to explore some low light soft corals. I'll post a stock list when I get to it.
temp - 84 (I know, I'm picking up a chiller tomorrow. all those pumps in the sump kick off a lot of heat!)
1.021 (too low for corals down the road?)
I don't have a test for potassium - do I need one??
I bought a ball of chaeto for the fuge. How many hours of light? 12?
And how many hours should the tank lights be on? Right now we have the actinics on for an hour, then regular lights (coral life) on for five hours, then actinics for 1 hr.
Thank you!! I'm sure I'll have a million more questions but this is all I can think of right now.
