Coral is all about cool water, water movement and lights. Of course you need clean water that is low in nitrates but light is one of the most important things in keeping corals. You don't need any chemicals. what chemicals are you thinking about?

Not all fish get along with corals. You have to do your research on the fishes or corals that you buy. Some fish eat corals, some will constantly knock them over. So you have to decide what you want. The only supplements you would need is if you have lots of SPS (small poylp spieces) corals and only much later on. Remember to add nothing to your tank that you can't test for. and then only slowly!!!

okay...maybe there is no probs at all right now as im doing the water cycle process..btw..,besides using refractometer is there any other equip that i can use..?? im sure that hydrometer is inaccurate..even my LFS dont use refractometer...(the store that i always go):LOL:
from my reading here, im in a process of build another tank for QT..then i believe that refractometer is MUST HAVE for my QT..

Thanx...
