    I started the cycle mid June and just moved the contents from my two nano tanks 1 6g and 1 12g which were both over a year old.

    Thanks, I'm not sure what type it is. It's thin and very porous and gives lots of hiding places. The idea is to cover the back wall with it and build off of that with LR.

    Nice, does the Sun Coral require spot feeding? Also, how old is the tank again?

    Sun corals are non-photosynthetic. So yes, they need to be spot-fed.

    The tank is a combination of two nano tanks that were around a year and a half old. The 36g bow front was cycled last month. And all the contents of the nanos went into it.

    Yes the sun coral needs to be fed, I feed mine twice a week.
