I want my Candy!


Recommended Posts

I was thinking of adding a candy cane coral to my 6 gallon NC today, original stock 18w lighting, and just want to know if additional calcium is needed to maintain these corals.


I do weekly water changes with Instant Ocean, I eventually want to change to TM-Pro or Kent reef, but for now IO has to do.


The only other corals I have are some mushrooms and yellow polyps.


So, does anyone foresee any reasons why I should avoid this coral?

The lighting should not be a problem. I have one in a bin with cycling rock and 15 watts of lighting and it's growing like crazy.

Thanks for the quick response, it's appreciated.


As far as the calcium goes, do you see any reason why regular weekly water changes wouldn't be enough for these corals?

You arent going to need to dose any calcium for and LPS....You start dosing calcium when you have SPS/Clams
