Reef Discussion / Re: Help with torch, frogspawn and hammer corals.

Michael gave a good suggestion ;D  (Yes, it's Terri_Ann...I try to sneak in once i a blue moon thumbsup1}  Capt, the chemical warfare can be minimized by using GAC, keeping the euphyllias away from leathers, etc.  There can be many reasons why they last only a month or so, don't sprout new heads...grow.  Is the alk being kept stable?  Are they getting medium flow and lighting?  When you initially receive them, what are using for dip?  What is the iodine/iodide level in the water?  Where is NO3 and PO4 being kept? 

When you see a strictly SPS system only, that's actually how it should be.  I know, many people have mixed reefs and the corals do fine.  However, some would say that the mixed reefs are just waiting for the time to have all the SPS die.  That's because of the chemical warfare that goes on.  And yes, dear Paul, you may not encounter that problem but you know that run your tank differently than other reefers :-*
Welcome to RP!  We are a bit on the slow side, but welcome any involvement here.

You look to be off to a great start there with your tank. What lighting plans do you have in the future?

Lol all good I’m a bit slow myself at getting back.. Not sure yet but lighting is the next thing on my list to get.. I was thinking one of the 100-200 $ LED lights.. That’s where I need to get a little help on what I should get cuz I know the stock Marineland hood leds and blue led strip I have aren’t doing anything

Not sure on the first, but the second looks to be a condy.  It is fine, but not a clown hosting anemone. The top may be a bubble tip, but can't tell for sure from the pic.

Nice additions regardless

Hi everyone so I decided to do my own forum about my 3” gal Nano Tank I started up a couple months back.. I’m not new to having fish but am new to the marine community. Anyway I’ll get some pictures up and will get more into details in time but so far I started the tank with the bio crushed coral, a few pieces of good live rock, water from the pet store, 2 Hydor power heads as well as 2 clowns about 10 blue leg hermit crabs, a cleaner shrimp and a few turbo snails. Oh and an emerald Crab... Can’t wait to keep adding (getting a better light) I’ll add more in future post and look forward to my tank growing and learning this fun hobby I’m already hooked on lol Any help or tips the my might have on my tank would be greatly appreciated!!
