I have been having a 30 gallon tank now for six months now and I wanted to begin to see some serious coral growth. I was wondering if I can begin adding a 2 part mineral and buffer additive to boost and stabilize existing calcium, magnesium, strontium and other important elements. Is it alright to add the prescribed dose from the bottle or should I add it slowly to the tank?
I hadn't checked it in a while because the tank was looking so good. It has been about three weeks since my last water change so I thought that my mineral levels would be down, so I considered adding a buffer to boost up the levels. I have never added anything to this tank but I did to my last one and it significantly stimulated coral growth.
In a nano, I would suggest just water exchanges weekly. It is very easy to accidentally upset the water parameters in a nano. And the dosing can get pretty crazy as you are dealing with a small water volume.
