I wanted to start adding corals to my tank but don't want to get too far ahead of myself. I upgraded my lights to 6 96w pc
's (4 10,000k and 2 actinic). My tank is 125g 72'' long, 18'' wide, and 22'' deep (approx.). I have a 30g fuge, 10g sump with a protein skimmer. The substrate is aprox 3'' deep in the main and in the fuge.
Here are my water parameters:
Amm - 0ppm
Nitirite - 0ppm
Nitrate - 20ppm
Ph - 8.2
Phos - .1ppm
Temp - 75
Are my nitrates still too high? Or am I okay to start adding corals? I was thinking of getting a leather, mushrooms, possibly a hard coral or two. I was also considering a clam but wasn't sure if my lighting was good enough.
Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated.
