Well the title says it all. This will be my every other week update on my new outlook for my 20 gallon tank. The goal is to have hundreds upon hundred of Zoanthids thriving and reproducing! SO Zoas only nothing else lol.
Now for some background information. The tank is 2ish months old and I have little to no experience with corals whatsoever, so if I do achieve this- it will be a huge milestone for me. And i will go like this ;D Whoot!! I'm on week 2 now with my first coral which came unexpectedly on the live rock i purchased and well it's pretty rad! These corals overall well-being inspired me to step it up a notch and when I saw Ron's posting for the Yellow Poylps- I just HAD to have them. It was cheap and quite awesome looking, so i'm all for that!!
Anyways Ron informed me about Alkalinity and Calcium. Still a pretty difficult concept to grasp, but nevertheless it seemed easy. One teaspoon each of this white powder stuff every few weeks and your good to go! Anyways without further ado here's pictures from week 2. Wish me luck on my quest guys !!
I stopped by Jo-Mars yesterday and I just HAD to have more zoas, lol. I even got the one responsible for all those zoa horror stories you see circulating around the net. Now that's peace of mind for me har har.. No troublesome roomies now!
Anyways, here's an update for you all. Ron looked at my water and the water parameters were great and spot on!! It's an awesome feeling to know I'm doing it right, haha. I owe it to the TFG-3, from Jo-Mars. So simple to use and just amazing! Now, without further ado here's what the parameters are to date. The corals look great! I'll snap some more pictures as soon as the Green Star Polyps get brave and come out, lol.
Alright guys. Doing an overaul soon. Getting a refractometer, 2 more powerheads, and metal halide lighting very very soon. As it is now I have not noticed huge amounts of growth, but my yellow polyps have definitely budded off 2 new polyps
David anything 15-20 is amazing. What you got? I'm looking to get into mroe exotic looking zoas now.
