I have an API test kit I bought when I was going to treat a fish in the hospital tank with copper but went with hyposalinity-and it died. I haven't used the test kit for my DT. Is copper something you would normally test for in a reef tank or should I take it back to the LFS
? It's becoming clockwork that I introduce a new fish on a Sat and by Tues night I can't find it. The other fish are going strong and showing no signs of any illness even though I had dramas a couple of months back.My readings are:
PH 7.8 ( will need to add buffer-I can never get it high) ......could this be the problem? Have the other fish adapted to the lower PH and the new fish die within a few days? I added a hugely fat mandarin- I had two before which recently died when my tank crashed and it was eating the lobster eggs and was really active. Within a day or 2 it was sitting on the sand bed and wouldn't eat then I couldn't find it when I got home? I have my own RODI
system so maybe that's not filtering the water correctly?
