    My 50 gallon slice of the ocean, Sep 12, 2017

    Tank it’s progressing. I’m still fighting an alage out break. It’s not terrible but definitely worse it’s been since the tank has been up and running. My phosphates are sitting at .02 and nitrates around 20 ppm. I started to get what appears to be green coralline growth which makes sense since I saw a drop in alk and calc from 8.4 to 7.9 alk and 450 to 400 calcium. I bumped those numbers knees back to 8.4 and 450. I don’t think I’m at the point where I need to put the calc and alk on the doser but I’m guessing within the next few weeks I will have to especially once I get my shipment of corals next week. I’m also 3 days into nopox and sitting at a dose of 5.5 ml once a day via doser. I have my bachelor party this weekend and a busy work week so I won’t be around the tank much to observe. How Can I forget! My coral, both my gsp and mushroom look extremely happy and are definitely growing. I know there easy beginner corals but it’s the first time I’ve ever had success with any coral so it’s a great milestone for me. I would love to find a Ricordea mushroom and try that out.
