Rock Closeups.




What is that white thing in the middle? Sponge? How about the little "strands" hanging off. This rock was covered with YSP but then they died during the cyano so im thinking about breaking the part with the YSP off and chucking the rest. and then attatching the YSP to the base rock



Red stuff but it does not brush/scrape off



Sand bubbles that appear in the front. I usually use my grabber to sift the sand that's right against the glass to get rid of the ugly bubbles. But I don't shift through anything else.

That's how it looked when I bought the rock but they all died, but actually, the colors are soo much nicer now. I just hope they grow in.

I will check parameters tonight and update. I hope to be OK for some easy LPS in 2 weeks

Wow, Reef Crystals has been treating me much nicer than regular IO. These parameters look good to me. Think I can handle some easy LPS? I figure I will dose my Kent Nano A & B when the corals are added to keep the parameters steady as the corals start to consume the nutrients.

Nitrates - 0 - 5 ppm
SG -1.024
Mg- 1280
Ca - 420
ALK(dkh) - 10.1
pH - 8
Temp - 79

With these parameters, you should have no problem. What kind of lighting do you have?

That should be enough light. Start them off higher in the tank just to be sure.

Here is a full tank shot. I need to fix the YSP rock on the right bottom. Its not glued down so it can be relocated. Also above the goby there is another rock with a few zoas that can be relocated.

Do you have any suggestions on what corals would look work with my aquascape and for my tank. I need to read up more before I head to the LFS on the 8th. I like frogspawn, trumpets, hammer , torch, mushrooms, zoas, Kenya tree, leathers.

looks good

things are looking real good man.Just a heads up,Be wary about the yellow polyps as they will sting most corals and reproduce rather fast.As far as beginner corals those are all pretty good ones.I have seen you on this forum for some time and was looking for some one who was interested in having some coral frags shipped to them.I provide the coral and you pay the shipping.Most of the corals you have listed as well as mushrooms and zoanthids can be shipped without overnight wich will allow for a cheaper transport.If you are not interested then no big deal,I just need a little practice shipping out of state.

All those corals look good to me. I forgot, do you have a pistol shrimp for your goby yet? Love seeing him out front showing off!
