OK fair enough. Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, phosphate all 0. Alk 11, pH = 8.3, Ca = 420-440ppm, salinity = 1.023, temp 82-83F. My tank is a 55gal.
I add 2.5ml of Iodide twice per week. 5ml of Kent Marine Essential Elements every two weeks, 5ml Strontium & Moly every 4 days, 5ml of Kent Marine Liquid Calcium every day or as needed to keep at above levels.
I have a small birdnest (2") Yellow Polyps, 3 Xenia, small Red Cap, Pink Zoas, dragons eye zoas & Bubble tip anemone. The mushroom is the only one and not near any of the others. By that it is is mid water and a good 8-12" from any other coral. It has never been in reach. I've got about 80lb of live rock and a 5" live sand bed.
The fish get fe twice per day. I alternate with nutrafin max marine flakes and Ocean Nutrition Formula 2 Marine Pellets. Once per week they get a cube of brine shrimp.
