Wow! Really nice coral.Top down in the store. 14” light height, 100% blues, mars aqua 165w.
I got the lower two.
I have a 165 viparspectra at 18”, but I run 20% whites for a couple hours in the day. Same as DT. Makes transfer acclimation easier to manage. I’ll need to offset them to the side a little to compensate, being that they are a low light coral.
These are Fungia plate corals. Also known as ‘Pinwheel coral’. Short tentacles version, should get up to around 1-1.25” long tentacles.Wow! Really nice coral.
What type of coral is this? I wouldn't mind something similar for my tank down the road. I'm still relatively new to the saltwater hobby so I'm not sure if this is maybe a torch coral?? I could be way off...
Gnarly looking. I’m so happy to say I haven’t seen one of these in any of my tanks yet.Just caught this little hell-spawn crawling all over my GSP. He’s been living inside of a rolled up piece of GSP mat hanging off the side of the main colony. I ducked him out with some rigid airline and a 20ml syringe. He got a little mashed up on the ride
Nice fish, good suggestion. I don’t like the blank white though. I have a few monotone fish already and would like something with some Picasso in its coloration/ patternJust getting caught up on your build, kinda. Have you considered a pyramid butterfly? Reef safe and very nice fish.
I had to do that after my bulkhead fracture and fried electrics a few months ago, I have 2 sets of drains and returns, I hate re-balancing it!So- I’ve been chasing a pulsing BA since the power cut. I thought I had it dialed in again (no idea why it needed tweaking) but I just got a surge. So I opened up the gate valve 1/4 turn AND ITS FULLY OPEN!!!
So- the pump setting that was awesome pre- power cut is now too high and giving me too much flow. I need to dial it back, while closing the gate valve until it all equilibriates.
I don’t understand it that though- all that happened was a normal pump power off situation- just 3 hours, you know?I had to do that after my bulkhead fracture and fried electrics a few months ago, I have 2 sets of drains and returns, I hate re-balancing it!
