Since I was running a 38 Gallon FOWLR tank, I let my Aptasia go nuts, but I am waiting to tackle that before my next water change with Aptasia X. So, I can add more live rock and begin converting over to beginner corals... I am also currently dealing with a Nitrate issue 20 PPM's, 0 Nitrite, 0 - Amonia, 0.5 Phosphate, 7.8 PH and a low Salinity of 120. I assume this is happening because of the recent change from the 38... Waiting it out.

just from moving the sand stirring up crap. salinity low is fine for fish till you get it up. low salt protects from some disease. what coral are you planning lets see pics man

Yeah, I have pics on my profile, but I can't seem to pull them through... I will plug my IPhone back in and load from there. Thanks!

Corals?

Definately open to suggestions, I figured frags would be best to start with... I have done some research and really like frogspawn and star polyps, other than that not sure what would be good!

By the way, looks like my tank is cycling a bit, I am getting that brown stuff on the glass that I remember from the beginning... I hope that after the battle these fish have seen that they hang in there??

Better pics

I rearranged the LR and took a few more pics for TRT review... You can see the amount of Aptasia in the tank, pretty clear now. I need to go get some more water test strips and have my LFS run the gamma, I'll post thos results later. Thanks for the input!
