    What Coral to Use?

    I have a 20 gallon nano reef tank that ive had for about 7 months or so. I have two clownfish, a shrimp, decent size cuc, urchin, and starfish in there. All the inhabitants are doing great. Coral wise i have a torch coral, gsp, a hammer coral, a mushroom coral, and some sort of brain looking coral. Here are pictures of the tanks. Theres alot of empty space around the rocks especially towards the top of the rocks. What corals would you recommend for these places and where would you put them?

    Ai prime

    I will be keeping majority of the corals in the center of the tank. I have a current usa satellite led bar. Its decently bright and will allow me to put some easy corals along the sides. But even then i wouldnt have alot along the sides as i dont like a crammed look and it makes it easier for cleaning I was thinking about it but my mom doesnt want holes in her ceiling. She is not gonna let me get it

    Ai prime

    So i am turning my 36 gallon bowfront aquarium into a saltwater tank. I will be adding a 20 gallon sump to it as well. The lights i want to use are the ai prime hd because i already have one. My problem is where to attach the light to. This is the top of my 36 gallon tank and i feel like the support bar down the middle might be a problem for me. What would you guys recommend i do???

    Maxspect Gyre XF230 Or ecotech mp10

    Red Sea Reefer 170

    Okay thank you. That is a good skimmer, however i cannot find it on any canadian sites and i know my lfs doesnt have it. Any other good skimmers?

    Red Sea Reefer 170

    Okay thank you! I already have a tunze auto top of. Didnt want to take a chance with the one that came with the tank. Ill get the hanna phosphate checker. Just looking at a reactor for my sump to use only when needed. If i have the room for one i will purchase one but only use it as necessary. What skimmer would you recommend that is generally small and leaves room in the sump

    Red Sea Reefer 170

    Okay thats awesome. So you have an external reactor it looks like for bio pellets? A pump to collect the water then just a tube to return the water? What skimmer is that as well? and out of curiousity what is the cup with the green stuff in it. Im assuming some type of refergium? Final question is there any other filter media you have in here or did i get everything

    Red Sea Reefer 170

    If anyone is farmiliar with this sump, what would you recommend for using in this sump? As far as socks to gather debris. A pump for returning water to the aquarium. A skimmer. Filter media etc. If it is possible, would i be able to get a reactor in there too? Ideally i would like a sump with a skimmer, reactor and a place for probes

    Red Sea Reefer 170

    What should i put in my sump if my reefer 170?? I would like more than just a protein skimmer if possible but space is limited with that sump. Price does not matter. What would you guys recommend?

    Red Sea Reefer 170 Lid

    Weird parameters

    No ive been busy with diplomas. I will once diplomas are done. Yeah i hate hearing about dosing. Just seems like more of a regular cost that i have to do. I did dosing in my planted tank and hated it because its an ongoing cost. Mag is most likely wrong because it just doesnt seem right. If i did dose calcium wouldnt it bring alkalinity down?
