Almost impossible tragically.

Supposedly, in a big enough tank, springers won't kill each other. 

 

Could always try to get a small pair and see if they well... Pair up, but fair warning -if they spawn- damselfish pairing is more the male tolerating the female's existence, that can change quickly.

Yeah may skip that then 😬 May just hang with what I have in those cases.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not trying to discourage, just temper. I adore damselfish, they're some of my absolute favorite personalities in this entire hobby, but there are just certain realities about trying to keep more-intelligent saltwater turbo-chiclids in glass boxes.

 

Sorry to hijack.

Doing another water change cuz I have time. Got some top downs cuz those are the best.... If we didn't need flow for life I would have just a big shallow trough for corals.

 

The little acro is coloring up and seems like it is choosing to live.

Wow this tank is a beauty Tambarev! Awesome job! really love all the diversity and growth.

 

What intensity do you keep your LED's? What settings are using for your Aquamai? Are you dosing or just keeping up with water changes? Sorry for all the questions

I am just doing 80% water changes (about 3g) whenever I have free time. It gets pretty stinky when I go 2 weeks though!! Trying to do it 1-2 times a week now. I have thought about dosing but dosing requires testing and I have never tested anything on here.....that might be more work 😛 

 

For the wavemaker, I just picked a pre-set someone made called SPS 200l - it is both waves and random flow with night being 'smooth' flow which is nice since the tank is next to my head when I sleep.

 

Light schedule is 9 hours, 1 hour blues at 80%, Peak is 80% blues 16% white/lime, and another hour of blues at 80%. The fixture is an older lime module which obviously works just as great as mint, it just makes your tank more natural colored in the day. 

 

Filtration is just floss and a bag of carbon I change maybe once a month and I feed frozen daily, pretty heavy, I don't wash my frozen as I figure the juice is for the corals.

I may have made a mistake... I am pretty sure if it continues at this rate it will sting or smother other corals in short order.

 

I am not even sure what type of coral it is tbh as I am bad at that and I got it marked as a freebie. I like the pink dots on it but may have to remove it and think of something else to put there.

Thanks, I was kind of thinking chalice too. I was hoping it would be one of the slow growing types but looks more like one of the fast ones! 

Cherry Garcia Chalice. I have one - it needs room. Can even melt yumas if they're too close.

Ugh, I wish you lived closer, would love that lol...

(/EndJoke)

Yeah chalices don't lose to many corals when the fighting starts, but man are they beautiful, the biggest issue is they have super variable growth rates -even within the same species- so it's really hard to know what placement is best.

 

Some have crazy sweepers, others have hydnophora distance-melting slime, some are just weeds like stunners...

Removed the chalice today and will have to find something to replace it with.

 

Did a water change...my salt is a solid block and mixes up to 5 for Alk so I have been dosing it back up to 7.5 and then filtering it through a 100 micron sock to remove the precipitation. Seems to work fine this way. I didn't want to toss two boxes of salt!! 

 

This is how much water I replace 😛

Just enough for the fish to swim in.
