My order will probably be delayed, because I changed my mind on with the lighting, I want to be sure I can grow almost every corals in my starter tank. I'm doing a kind of "experience" i'll say, just to see How much I appreciate a reef tank in my house, and how corals are growing, what kind of corals, anemones, LPS
, etc.. Just to learn.
I already have my 10 gal
QT and my 30 gal
main tank to maintain. My 30g take something like 10 mins/days + 1hrs weekly for the maintenance. I'll see how much time it take to make a WC
, taking care of corals, etc...
Do you have an advice to give to me ? What's the common mistakes reef noobs are doing ? I'm going with easy fish, 2 clownfish and a shrimp for beginning...
Can you suggest me some easy corals, where I'll be able to see my clowns playing in them ?
Take your time, patience is key on the sw
side of the hobby. Nothing good happens fast in sw
lol. Um some easy starter corals, I like zoas, Duncan's, mushrooms, ricordeas, any soft coral really. Clowns are funny fish and will host anything be it corals, a powerhead, a corner of the tank, etc...
About the light I like 16k because it makes the colors pop but 10k will probably give you better growth.
