Yes but letting every thing settle for a little while. I have been adding some thing every weekend. So I thought it may do it good to give it a couple of weeks off.
Thanks for the name. It looks just like it. at least now I know a little about it.

there are so many possibilities that in order to ID that coral, you would need to send some off to a pro. However, depending upon the polyps (do they retract? turn white? what do they look like? is the coral smooth, silky, or slimey? etc) Could be a Klyxum?

are you adding/testing calcium? I would think you would have some coraline starting to grow. If you pick up a piece of live rock and rub the serraited end of a knife lightley onto the coraline it will help spread the spores throughout your tank. Also dosing strontium will help out.

If you started dripping kalkwasser that will add both and it will keep the PH and ALK up.

Looks great so far....that is a real big tank.

Mysterybox it feels smooth and slimmy. The little flower like things will suck in when you touch it.

I have not started adding any chem. yet. Everything is testing fine right now. I dont think it will be long and I will have to tho. The tank is a 150 gallon. I thought it would be a good starter and I would not have to up grade to soon but I already think I want to go bigger.lol

Just curious if those are pieces of slate in with the LR? Is slate okay to use in a reeftank?

I was going to ask the same thing Linda.:unsure:

I was going to ask the same thing Linda.:unsure:

I'm not a geologist, but was wondering if slate contained iron or anything else that might leach out into saltwater. I would imagine that you could do some amazing aquascaping with slate, but there might be a reason you don't see it in reeftanks.

Slate can be ferrous so you might want to watch out. The catch is that slate is a sedimentary rock and the composition can vary. It might not be slate though, some things sold as slate just look like it but have a different composition. And I thought I would never use anything I learned in GEOL 4300. :)

I am not sure of what kind of rock it is. My husband bought it at the lfs. So I would guess it is safe for my tank.

Ehhh be careful! some rock is safe for fresh water and not salt water because it can leach stuff into the tank that corals are sensitive to but plants are not.

A "Colt" coral is a loosely designated term for a branching Octocoral of the various Genera Alcyonium, Cladiella, Klyxum, Lobophytum, Sarcophyton, and Sinularia. So yes, it is a "colt" coral. If you want to find out specifically which one (best guess anyway), I need some more info please.

I have got 3 candy canes in there. The one in the middle is new. I like it a lot it has a bunch of heads on it.
