You and I, are kin lol....I have 5 ( Yellow Tang, Ocellaris, Three Stripe Damsel, all of them 18 years, and Coral Beauty , Eibli Angels), in my 90 for many years, I could add more but............it works as created. I don't want to mess with the balance. But definitely OP you need a fish or two imo......I’ve got 4 fish in a 90. Kinda thinking I won’t be adding any more. 2 clowns, a tomini and a fridmani. Definitely light on fish.
Phosphates and nitrates are a nutrient like many other things. They just need to be in balance in your tank so you don't bottom out and don't go too high for excessive algae growth or other problems.I am totally flabbergasted. The last time I was here over 2 years ago, I don’t remember any talk about the necessity of phosphates and nitrates for coral growth. Now it is a big thing to be so concerned about. Is this just another passing trend or a major break through in coral care. When did this idea start?
Where can I find the science and research for this? I am ready to learn. I have to know why things work the way they do.Phosphates and nitrates are a nutrient like many other things.
