Thanks! Appreciate the advise. I was pretty nervous about starting a bare bottom tank with dry rock but so far (knock on wood) it hasn’t been as bad as I thought. I had the filefish in the biocube and noticed 1 aptasia coming from one of the zoas so I moved him over. The aptasia is now gone.
For the most part they all have good color still with a little growth. The red monti cap is the only one growing and has good color on the growth. I know it’s still a new tank (6months old) so I’m happy that I’ve only lost one coral so far.
