I have been at this salt water fish tank since May and I just have had nothing but bad luck it seams. I went on a week vacation when I thought I was just starting to get the hang of things I came back to a ton of algae . Now I had some before, but I had just done a water change and sucked a ton of it up.
I know they were over feed over my week vacation because I had to buy an auto feeder and it was feeding them every day a decent amount.
I took some photos I am going to post. I just feel like selling the fish and corral back to my fish store, throwing out all my live rock, water and sand. and waiting a few months and starting fresh again by re cycling the tank.
However I don't know if you guys can help.
I am going to try to be more committed to fixing the problem this time. I think my filter might be an issue, the bio wheel is seized up it seams. It spins but very slowly. At the movement my protein skimmer is not working, but after my cleaning I should be able to fix that.
I have been debating getting a different filter I hear the biowheels aren't that great for salt water. Should I get a Fluvial?
With two clown fish and 1 coral frogspawn what should I be feeding them and for how much blue/white light?
I bought something called PhosGaurd and put it in a media back and behind my filter, but I don't think it does much. It's not placed in my tank very well. Should I try a different GFO
? My brother recommend CemiPure?
I am going to do my cleaning after a few people respond. If perhaps you want to have a Skype conversation with me about this send me a PM and I can show you my setup via webcam.
PS: What is that purple thing that grew off my live rock/algae?
