How important is it to add coral food such as amino acids or other additives to your tank to have a thriving collection of SPS?
When fish or corals are shipped via an overnight service, I am a BIG believer in having that livestock delivered to either a UPS or FedEx customer center.
One key to keeping an eye catching SPS dominated reef is to plan ahead and think about what the reef might look like in a year or two when it matures.
Less is better when it comes to aquascaping a reef tank. A more open aquascape will provide room for corals to grow and maximize circulation.
SPS can be very demanding to keep in a reef tank. They key is to have strong lighting, circulation and sufficient calcium and alkalinity supplementation.
