Yea it really is. I've just tried to keep it simple. Found what works and kinda just left it alone. Just around a 15 gallon water change every 2 weeks and that's pretty much it. I don't supplement too much and don't 100 percent believe what the fish stores tell me. Hell there water is worse than mine I've come to realize. 1 store told me my phosphates should be as close to zero as possible after they tested mine at .06. Tested theirs at my place after purchasing a fish from them it was over 1.5. I couldn't believe it. Tested other fish stores water from a couple other purchases and they were high as well. Needless to say I drop acclimate now net the fish/ coral and dump the water
Haha, yea that's the problem with this hobby. I feel like I know just enough to get me into a lot of trouble. Like I said I've tried to keep it simple and I'm happy with the growth of the few things I have in the tank. Not interested about growing rare or high dollar polyps or acros. To each his own in this hobby. That's the beauty of it.
