    I have a few Zoa's and a GSP along with a BTA. I want to add several more to my scape, but am not sure about placement for optimal growth. I have two Kessil Tuna 360's, so my lighting should be sufficient. my livestock includes a flame angel, two gobi's, two damsels, one clown (adding another soon!), a fox face, and a dory tang.

    What would you reef experts recommend to be added and where should I place them?

    I dose 10 ml of B-ionic by hand daily.

    I love flame angels but I would be careful adding corals because you never know if they decide to start nipping at corals. I do not have direct experience with it but I have read about flames eating zoas, lps, and nipping sps. I have not heard of them eating mushrooms but hope someone else can chime in. Good luck!

    While I’ve seen flame angels in reef tanks I wouldn’t. Just never know.

    My flame was fine for about 8 months but suddenly started picking on my acans. I have them protected in a box for now, may have to trade/sell acans eventually.

    Do you even need the b ionic...you don’t have any calcium consuming corals? I’m dosing 20ml on my tank and I have a ton of frags growing out.

    I’d recommend some easier stuff like candy canes, toadstool, frogspawn, nepthea, and hammer to start. Easy, and cheap...

    Dude at AC tested my calc and it was low. He recommended 10 ml.

    I’d just hate to see you wasting time and money dosing something you didn’t need.

    A weekly or bi weekly water change should be all you need
