Probably a stupid question, but if I'm growing monti cap well in my LPS-heavy tank is it possible to be successful with other forms of monti like a superman montipora for example?

Reason I ask is because I dabbled into SPS with one piece (from reputable seller on canreef) but it RTN'd within the first month after a WC lol. I only have one XR15 over 24" so it was shaded and tank so small I'm sure it has some parameter swings when I do my WC's, but no LPS issues in 10 months.

Maybe test the water parameters for your newly mixed water and adjust to match your tank. Salt mixes are not consistent for Mg, Ca, dKH.
Sg, Temp and PH also :wink:

Probably a good idea to check dKH and PH every time...lol.
