Bye bye algae, hello coral!

Posted 11/08/2012 at 08:06 PM by ACBlinky

Today's numbers:
- Ca 360ppm
- alkalinity 8.5dkh
- Mg 1350ppm
- PO4 1.36 (ack!) (Hanna checker)
- NH3 0
- NO2 0
- NO3 0

The bryopsis and hair algae are nearly gone, and the giant patch of sea lettuce that cropped up disappeared within 36h of the turbo snails' arrival. The rocks are nearly bare again!

Yesterday new goodies arrived in the mail -- a Sea Squirt target feeder, test kits, filter sock, a powerhead, and some food.

I bought some small frags online (zoas and rics mostly), and placed them in the tank tonight. They were well packed, with a styrofoam cooler and heat pack, but FedEx kept them on the truck all day and they were freezing cold when they arrived. I drip acclimated them for 5 hours, letting them get warm gradually, and once I placed them in the tank they started to open up.

I'll post some pictures of the corals when they settle in
