also tamberav is right, xenia, gsp, and (to a lesser extent) monti caps, are invasive and annoying to have to kill later on
I’m a masochist about invasive coral, if I can have a overgrown tank which makes the fish happy, I am happy. I’m going to do a gsp wall so it can’t get into my lr, I saw a vid and they said that it’s easy to remove from a wall

Ok. If I test nitrate and I don’t smell ammonia does that woek? I only am gonna test nitrates. I shouldn’t have die off cos it’s only coralline but I could also try testing it at my lfs or petco. Does petco not use api? I have a specialist petco

Yes, the ammonia smell test is 100% reliable.

no you cannot do a smell test. api is usually ok for ammonia though, coralline algae dies from being left above water for too long. After my water changes i always get coralline dying on the glass

yah I don’t keep these invasive ones in my DT. I do like how they look and grow them in a 25g frag tank though just for my own enjoyment.

Much easier to control Xenia in a 25g space than a 80!

I agree, with my nsa scape I think it would be really cool to have the heads of the rock covered in monti cap or nps

anyone know if the api freshwater and saltwater ammonia test is even a different test or the same thing?
Same chemicals for both, different color charts.

I want my tank to look like a jungle with like big montis swaying lps and softies leathers shrooms zoas a wall of gsp and some caleurpa leaves and other cool large leafed and some small leafed for detail macros to accent the big corals. I am going to take what I know from freshwater aquascaping to make a beautiful saltwater scape
