    Good looking Acropora under blues lighting

    Had some time to think about this and I think it might work. With the Radions I can choose the specific spectrum of light at different intervals during the day. I can add the whites, red and greens during the day when I am not home and after 6pm have 4hrs of blues. I can try this out while...

    425XL - Version 2

    I believe it’s 45 days if your tank temperature is above 80.5+ (not exact on this number). My tank is around 76-78.

    Good looking Acropora under blues lighting

    A lot to consider, thanks for all the info. My tank is in a happy place and it sounds like it may need a lot of changes to be successful at SPS. I’ll probably take it slowly and add a little white while increasing the PAR until the current corals adjust and revisit SPS later and start off with...

    Good looking Acropora under blues lighting

    That's my current light settings as of today :-). I don't know if it will work for Acropora, but for torches and Zoas they seem pretty good.

    425XL - Version 2

    Day 60 in the fallow period. 16 More days to go before adding fish back into the system. Good thing about being fallow for 60 days, baby trochus snails and large pod populations. Torch growth has been pretty good so I used a Dremel to frag a Hellfire. Look like I might need to frag it again...

    finicky coral

    My tank is pretty new as well (6 months) and from what I have seen my tank went through three stages. I first got diatoms, then GHA, then Cyano and now things seems to have settled down where I feel like am running out of algae for the Cuc to feed. Common sense tells me not to add...

    Pest Free - QT- Dipping Acropora?

    I have been lucky so far with trying to keep my tank pest free, and believe me there is a lot of luck involved as I have made many mistakes that could have introduced pests. I have been successful at QT with Zoa and Torches, but I am worried about placing SPS in QT for a long period of time...

    Notice the Salifert Magnesium test kit was expired, wasn’t sure if it may be bad. Made a quick run to Neptune’s and got a new test kit and reran 3 tests. Expired Salifert 1140 New Salifert 1350 Red Sea 1400 I did read that Red Sea Mag test higher than Salifert. I guess when in doubt, buy a new...

    salinity is 1.026. Comparison to how much it would take to reach Alk levels that I want. Such a huge difference between increasing Alk and Mag.
