A coral farm is an aquaculture facility designed to propagate – or grow – live coral, providing a self-sustaining source of corals.
Aquaculture is the cultivation of aquatic organisms. Aquacultured species include a wide range of popular ornamental species, like corals, and are a viable alternative to wild harvested species.
Which are the most important water parameters in a reef tank?
I would like to put focus onto the most important water parameters in the reef keeping hobby. Some of them can only be tested in laboratory, some of them can be tested by you.
Corals can tolerate a little bit lower and higher temperatures, but they prefer temperatures between 24 and 26 °C. If you have a problem in your tank, check water temperature first.
Number 2: pH.
During the evening your show stopping sized Acropora colony looked just fine, but the next morning the tissue in the middle of the colony has stripped. What happened?
Probably the most common reason is that there was not enough water exchange (too low flow) in the center of the colony.
Through metabolism, the pH decreased in the low flow areas of the coral. In addition, if the pH of your aquarium water drops too low at night, this can also contribute to the same problem.
pH is definitely one of the Top 10 reef tank water parameters. At least, it should be tested once a week in the morning and in the evening. Usually in between AM and PM a fluctuation of 0,3 pH is often observed, but this should be minimised as much as possible. If the pH drops below 7.8 at night, something in your system needs to be optimised. A good pH to aim for is between 8.2 and 8.4.
What you can do to improve the pH of your tank:
Keep a stable Alkalinity KH of around 7.5 – 8 dkh.
Ventilate your rooms well.
Fresh air from outside for your skimmer´s air intake something similar or use an cheato algae refugium.
Having good flow on the water surface helps with gaseous exchange too.
Number 3: KH or Alkalinity.
The alkalinity, carbonate hardness or KH is very important to buffer the pH of your tank. Carbonate (CO3) is also one of the major building blocks for corals to form their aragonite or calcite skeletons.
Problems when testing at home:
As the solutions become older they become less effective, that leads to wrong readings.
The procedure can easy change slightly/errors occur giving inaccurate results… always test more than once at one time.
The color perception of you and your eyes can lead to wrong readings, try to read in indirect sunlight.
Sometimes the test is bad from the beginning.
