2 Month Old Tank Opinions Wanted

Hi new to marine tanks and recently setup a marine tank.

 

I used some marko dry rock and also a couple of bits of live rock.

 

Here is a before and after 2 months later. Any opinions or suggestions welcomed 4d46c29e648c1d4af4071180c260eb9f.jpg

Thanks Dave. I'm pleased with it. Need to get my levels rights as struggling to keep my lobo and war coral in here.

 

They are losing colour which is a shame.

Welcome Ross to reef face

 

That's a great start for only two months gap between pictures,

Why not start a diary up when you have time and tell us more about your system in more detail and with lots of pictures to.

sounds like bleaching ,try moving them to the bottom of the tank further away from the lights .

Hi,

looks good.

are you using ocean rock? the first pic looks a lot like ocean hard rock.

Be careful if you are...can leach nitrates.

looking good though for 2 months old.

If rock is from the ocean, it will cycle but should not really have any nutrients (phosphate) bound up in the rock. Just the normal die-off of periphyton and internal sponges.
