    By easier corals do you mean staying away from stony corals? I think they’re easiest because you don’t have to dose calcium as much.

    I’m in the same boat muggle. Just restarted my aquarium. I never had great luck before with corals. This time around I’m getting my perameters where they should be before stocking. I discovered the pH was extremely low and fixing that. You say you’re dosing? Do you have a doser or doing it manually?

    Jebao auto doser but stil need to monitor levels
    I do a poor job testing conditions

    I used to have time to dedicate to my tank but between kids and increased work time due to location i struggle to give the time it need to keep parameters in line

    Just purchased some duncans, war cora, favoa and some zoas

    Haveaways struggled with zoas but havent tried again in years

    Magnesium runs about 1300

    Calcium 400-450

    Alklinity i tend to run a bit igh 9-10

    And nitrates 15-25-so newer corals atruggle to adjust
