Xmas tree coral/worms, mortuus est  6/3/2011
Hi again thanks for the advice on the 5 gal 6500k/480atinic florescent.
Now here is a stump-er, went to local fish store here in Stockton ca which has a good bit of cured live rock. They just a month ago took down a coral display approx 100 gal. So was looking for 3-4 pounds to place in new 5 gal Nano, well ol and behold as I was digging found a one pound piece of Xmas tree coral.
<Mmm, these worms are not easily kept in small, unstable, too-nutrient free small volumes>
Question is as of now 2 days 2 nights water quality's good nitrates still at 2, ph8.1, and I ma using Kent purple grow "supposed to promote Coraline and good green algae, Will the Xmas worms ever come back?
<Doubtful...>
Holes are still open and from time to time see bubbles come out of shell.
<Decomposition>
also have a small filter but used a small rag between glass and filter to help circulation and o2 sats.
Do I need a power pump for water movement for 5 gal live rock now but will be coral tank
<Mmm, yes... I would use one of the smaller internal products... Hydor makes a nice small unit for inexpensive, VorTech has a very nice, pricey one. Do read on WWM re small systems...
