Once you've gotten it on the road and rolling, the maintenance ain't much different than a FW tank.

My calcium levels must be good. I'm looking around and I've had a coralline explosion! I swear it wasnt there yesterday lol. It's not so much the maintenance I'm worried about, it's if I can afford to stock it and keep it looking nice and what not.

Your ALK and MAG are in line also, or it wouldn't grow.

Yay! Sweet. I have all the tests except phosphate, but I havent tested anything because theres nothing in there yet except for the mushroom, blue legs, and turbo that came with the live rock. So I figured instead of wasting tests I'd just let it settle on it's own for the first month or two, then start testing and see where it's at.

sigh. well I guess I'll keep the listing up on CL to see if anyone bites (havent gotten anything promising as of yet) and if nothing I suppose I'll be keeping it :P

Theres something on my red mushroom. I think they're the same thing just one is bigger and looks almost like a teeny worm, the other just looks like a little dot. Both are white and moving around. I think I see a few dot sized ones on the glass. Are these something that are going to harm my corals?

Sound like PODS to me. Don't think you have anything to worry about.
