Just have to keep our fingers crossed.  Now it is up to me and good maintenance.

How often will you do WCs on this tank and how big of a %

Are you using RO water?

Yes I am using walmart RO water right now.  A gallon a week right now. But have ordered a RO filter and well be doing every other day 1 gallon water changes.  That is my goal to start with and adjust as needed.

Have you considered zoanthids? They are easy to ship, hardy and come in amazing colors. You can find lots of fun colors that come with even better names like ultra eagle eye zoa

One of the tree corals died. I didn't like the looks of them any ways so removed them both.  Doing great now.

Well, I was gonna say I'm sorry, but you seem pleased so :nana

Those guys are really sensitive hun.... I had two of them... One did really well the other didnt do when when my Mushrooms and recordias moved over and started to burn them... Yup corals will have war fare with each other sometimes... :)

Pulps are the easiest and so are the mushrooms....

Yep next time I order some going to get a couple of these.  Thinking I might just get a couple mixed colonies and call my coral done.  I would like at least one of the blue mushrooms too.

It is a snail and still in the tank.  I am getting to much green stuff so need to go get something to eat it. Maybe more snails?

This is with a flash.
