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.

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

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....

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

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.

I really like the look of those zoanthids.

 

This is such an exciting thread. Didn't realise mollys could go salty. Did you ever find out what the little star creature is.

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.
