Anyway I've had the tank for almost 2 months now, I have 2 clown fish,a goby, scooter blenny and a coral beauty. I have a few corals, some mushrooms,candy cane, some leathers, 1 sps, 2 lps, and a duncan.
My water conditions have been fine,calcium is on point along with other tests, I did have a huge phosphate issue that is now under control
Temp is steady 76-78, I did however battle a heat issue under stock lighting so bad that I didn't need the heater.
I've heard 2 different things so I figured I'd throw myself to the members for some straight forward advice or criticism, I fell victim to the LFS and went with it.
So with all that said, some say too much too soon and I'm doomed and others say, stay on top of it,continue my weekly water changes and just keep on trucking. I will have pictures soon to post! I bought my wife a nice camera so tomorrow she's going to take some nice shots and I'll post a bunch!
Oh I also have a CUC
3 peppermint shrimp
5 nerite snails
5 nassarius snails
3 turbo snails
3 blue legged hermit crabs
3 mexican red legged hermit crabs
2 emerald crabs
and I believe 4 cerith snails
so what do you think?
ammonia for some reason is always been 0.1 never moves
phosphate is now under 5 after a long battle
trates and trites are good
I'm all yours and PLEASE be gentle
