The tank is a 10 gal
But like I said, I am religous about tank care(ask my GF :P )........25% PWC
's one a week with RO
I am certain no food is going to waste, I clean the filter media everytime I do a PWC
, with the old water from the change. I repleace it once a month. I am running a skilter 250 with a supplimented skimmer, which works great.
The stokc seems to be showing no health issues, I even have some encrusting gorgs growing on one peice of LR
.....and the dusters crown is steadily getting bigger, he certainly isnt shedding it, I have seen a duster shed its crown before due to poor water quality, and this one is steadily growing, as are all the other inhabitants of the tank.
got a pair of Black Percs in the other day that I have been trying to find for 3 months, and I couldnt get them because of my water, and now they are gone
I really want to fix this problem fast......
Here is my game plan........
I am going to do a 25% water change daily for a week, and see if I can get them down that way, then no changes for a week and see if they spike again.
What I dont understand, is that for the nitrates to spike again, wouldnt the ammonia and then nitrite have to spike in order, first?
/NH4 are the same as they have been for months. The tank is semi mature, it is over 6 months old, and has a booming pod population, and coralline growth.......I just dont get it.
