    Nice tank but what anemone? You put an anemone in the tank already?

    Don’t get me wrong, 250-350 par is more than enough for SPS. I wasn’t implying OP’s light is worthless cuz it’s far from that. My bad on using the wrong wording, not pointless but not as best as it can be.

    Fair enough. One thing is SPS being “fine” and totally different to thrive and look the best they can. Ive also watched a lot of Dana Riddle’s videos where he did PAR testing on Porites and found that higher PAR (usually over 300) leads to photoinhibition. But that’s one stony coral, doesn’t mean all will exhibit the same behavior. Ofcourse testing more pieces would be lots of work and is not paid enough for anyone to care. Id like to summon mister @markalot that I have been impressed with lately for lack of better words as far as growth and coloration on his acros in his 150. Thread is long , over on RC. I remember some of his pieces didn’t start to color up until 500PAR and up. I could be wrong though. I am sometimes.

    I’d say maybe you should start with some LPS and softies to keep you busy for another year or so then add SPS and get rid of the rest. There’s something about a new tank and SPS that no one can really understand. Even with perfect water , they still die. Take it slow this time . Light looks good but those T5’s are a bit pointless with no reflectors . PAR is good and no doubt you’ll be able to keep SPS but you’ll have a hard time coloring up some SPS if that is maximum intensity. Either way, I wish you good luck and will follow this 👍🏻

    ADA - the 2 island reef

    Acans loving life. The big one used to be a rainbow. Now more like orange with some specks of green and purple mostly on the newer more shaded polyps. Not sure where else to place it to regain colors. Total darkness? Cuz shade isn’t working well. Maybe it needs a few months .... 😣

    Travis your tank looks nice but you need more sticks in there, maybe a clam too lol Trying to make things easy for you 😆 My tank is 3 times smaller and I have to dose 4ml of each part every day. Expecting way more once everything really takes off.

    What lanthanum chloride does to your skimmer. Dosed into the cup. Cloudy milky skimmate, phosphate skimmed right out.👍🏻 I think I’m gonna bring down Alk slowly to 8 and keep it there. Dont want to risk burnt tips on my SPS if the nutrients get too low with my current almost 10dkh.

    ADA - the 2 island reef

    Thank you. Pulling my hair atm cuz my ELOS Phosphate and nitrate tests are garbage. Love the ALK/CAL/MAG tests but these 2 are a waste of money. Filled the test vial with water and a bunch of concentrated nitrate and it reads 0. (I was suspecting something is off with the reagents). So I need to go get a RedSea pro nitrate kit to have a real idea of what the level is. I know there is an ELOS professional phosphate kit and seems to work but the regular one didn’t do it for me.

    So this frag has been sold to me as green slimer but it obviously isn’t. Looks like the tip is getting lighter in color. Im wondering if it’s a frog skin acro or something similar. Opinions? Photo of colony is of a frog skin acro from the internet.
