Can’t seem to find much out there on what a normal monti looks like when going through the acclimation process. I picked up this large Idaho grape cap from a local reefer on Saturday and dipped it as normal, and then added it to the bottom of my tank (about 30 degrees from directly below the lights). I forgot to run my acclimation settings on my prime. I came back the next morning and found the cap had a nice layer of mucus and had browned up. I contacted the local reefer to see what their params were: 8.5KH and 420 ppm Ca2+. Tested mine to be at, 7.33KH and 520 ppm Ca2+. Also, salinity was at 1.027 (slowly bringing it back down, at 1.026 today). This should also bring calcium down too, I believe. I also attained their light setting which were on a hydra 26. I have my lights at these settings on a prime. On acclimation mode for a week To get to the point now that most bases have been covered, is this what you’d expect from an acclimating monti cap? I’ve been having great success with all other lps coral in this tank, especially the chalice, which is why I felt confident enough getting the monti. It is in a moderate flow area atm and will be moved to a higher flow area as it moves up. Day of pick up: Btw, I don’t dose regularaly. Only when I know I won’t be able to do a WC for at least a month. Regular WCs weekly of 33%; I have been wanting to do that twice a week and found a way to fit that into my schedule now. Heres a pic from today.
