    Mag. In a calcium reactor

    About to set up my first calcium reactor, do you run a magnesium component with the calcium media? I have no idea if magnesium is present in the calcium media to start with, or do people just add magnesium media to increase the levels beyond the calcium media?

    Size of RBTA food?

    Anemone food for a big RBTA? About 10"-12" big. How big if a piece of shrimp/fish etc. I have had him 1-1/2 months, seems happy, only have fed once a week, and just 3-4 small silver sides at a time. Thinking may be more food, more of a bubble tip?

    LED time/color ??

    Process started to add coral to my FOWLR tank. Added a few "easy" corals. I have installed 3 120watt dimable "full spectrum" lights. I can't figure out the timing and color thing out. I'm concerned about bleaching the coral out. I added a Green slimer, a meteor and a purple stylo coral along...
