    Ok so here is my situation, I have a 10 gallon reef tank that I've had for about two years and in the last 6 months I set up a 20 gallon salt tank. The 20 gallon cycled months ago and has some live rock in it. I want to transfer the corals from the 10 to the 20 gallon. Seems simple enough but here is my problem. The lighting I purchased in advance for the 20 gallon is currently on the 10 gallon supporting it. The 20 gallon has a light on it that I originally had for the 10 gallon but wasn't strong enough to support some of the corals I wanted to add to the tank. I want to transfer the corals over a period of time so that I don't upset the cycle to much but they may not survive in the 20 with its current lights. Need some ideas here on how to approach this.

    They will do fine for several days under the lower lighting.

    OTOH I would actually recommend moving all the corals on the same day.

    Hi guys! I am having product from holdtight to removes all salts, contaminants, flash rust. I had excellent experience with them. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

    I put 40 corals in at 1 time a few months ago. no.problems.
    Just move all of them over

    I would just remember the ordination you had with one coral to another. I would try to duplicate that initially indiscriminant placement of coral can lead to a stinging and or chemical war
