An issue I have seen with heavy filled coral tanks is that the corals create shadowing much easier with leds than with T-5. I often times wonder if this will be a problem in larger planted aquariums.

This is my second try at a MTS aquarium. It is a 75 gallon with what I think is medium light and pressurized co2. About 40% water changes every 2-3 weeks.

Ferts I have on hand are the liquid...

Reduce the lighting since that is what drives the aquarium, lower light lowers the needs for co2 and ferts.

Think of it as a weather system rolling in and making it cloudy for a week or two.

If your tank is not drilled you will need a drill kit from glass hole or take the aquarium to a pet shop that does. Usually a store that deals a lot with reef/saltwater.
