Any help would be appreciated
Hello everyone. After years of freshwater tanks, I decided to try saltwater. The tank is going for about a year. It is a fish only 55 gallon. It cycled for 3 months before I added fish. My PH is 8.2, no phosphates, no amonia, no nitrites. I only have one coral angel, one brown tang, one clown. I am REALLY going slow. Lots of base rock. I have a fluval 305 running, a coral life turbo twist and a skimmer.
Here are my questions:
1. I have a lot of red alge. Why?
2. My nitrates are staying @ 5 -10ppm. How do I get them down? I do water changes.
3. What is the best light to use?
4. How many more fish do you think I can add? Mine have been going strong for about 6 months.
Any info would be greatly appreciated!
