SPS keeping


Recommended Posts


I don't seem to be able to keep sps in my mature tank previously. I hope to start an sps dominant 3ft reef tank. My tank is a Redsea reefer 250 with 2 sets led 90 and chiller.

Any bros can advise the important things I need to take care of for a successful sps tank.

Quick answers.

Strong random flow
Stable parameters, temperature, salinity, kh, ph etc
Generally low nutrients, lower kh for colouration, higher kh for growth.
Higher par for lighting.
Chiller definitely a must

Then it’s alot of talk about good scape, placement

it is not as difficult as before to start a successful sps tank with all the gadget and supplement nowsaday. 

plan a nutrient export method i.e; carbon dosing, algae reactor, refugium ect.. consider either a dosing pump to supplement the big three (CA,MG,KH) or running a calcium reactor , as SPS take up these elements quite fast.
