Hi

I am new to s/w. I just started a 55 gallon fowlr, all is ready... water at 78F, filters running, salinity 1.024, but no fish yet.

As I got some used stuff from someone that had lots of gorgeous corals, they gave me 6 pieces of corals for free, all nice ones about an inch long stuck with CA on a calcium disc. They said they can do well in low light which is what I have. One of them is a nuclear green.

Since my tank's aquascape can change I put the corals in plastic cups of tank water and they are floating in tank now.

What can I do to keep them alive until I can find a nice LR to stick them?
Can I drill holes in plastic boxes and float them around? What do I feed 'em?
Pls advice , they are cute !!

Thanks
Kris

Calcium disck? Or do you mean frag plugs?

The coral nuclear green is a time of zoanthids. What's your lighting btw,

These corals that are on the plugs can be out anywhere. The corals will spread when it grows. It can grow on basicly any surface. Even the glass/ acrylic.

What is your water prameters? Calcium, Kh, MG, nitrate, ammonia? How long has it been set up?
