SPS Frags – Acropora and Montipora
The easiest SPS to keep ! SPS for Beginner !
Placement ,Light , Wave and Food requirement
Place coral in mid to 3/4 height of tank making sure that the skeleton not touching
the rocks so that abrasion will not occur when it expand . LED full spectrum light
of medium intensity is sufficient , Wave action should be moderate continuous
and non direct. Keep Away from Leather and Finger coral to prevent aggression.
Full Spectrum Led light of medium intensity 8-12 hrs is able to keep alive with slow growth.
Feeding once or twice a week will promote faster growth and propagation.
Feeding : Copepods, Cyclop Coral food and Rotifer
( Once or Twice a Week)
Water parameters need to be maintained well for Long Term Success :
DKH : 8-12 ; Magnesium : 1200-1400 , Calcium : 400-450 ppm and Trace elements .
You can use REEFMAX Additive ABCDEF to meet all above.
And Reefmax Amophos , Carbon , Super Bacteria and Chaeto to take care below:
Nitrate 0-50 ppm ; Ammonia : Non detectable ; PO4 < 0.1 ppm
Maintaining good water purity and mineral levels will enhance growth and expansion.
Salinity : 1.024 – 26 and Temperature : 25 – 27 degC .
