Hey guys I just got into the reef game again after a few failed attempts. I am finally at the point where I can throw a little bit of money at the tank and I am really wanting to create a reef. I can only have a 5 gal due to housing restrictions and i know this might make things harder but im excited for the challenge. This thread is to ask for advice for things to avoid and what to do and not do. Tank info water change/testing once a week distilled deer park water 5 gal fluval 18w current usa led (15 min sunrise sunset, 10 hr full intensity daylight, 4 hour moon light) 5 pounds lava rock (all the live rock in my area is very nasty and i dont want to put it in my tank) ph 8 nitrate/nitrite 0 ammonia 0 salinity 1.024 temp 74-76 I am really looking for advice for rock placement/light time and intensity/ supplements/ fish and coral that will work in this tank/ most importantly algae problems this is what always messes with my tanks and makes them crash.
