Well, Even with a DSB
and More LR
, I don't see how you'll maintain 0 nitrates with that much fishload in a 50g tank. The tank, IMO
, is way overstocked.
1) The bioballs in the filter are a nitrate factory...
2) The fishload is causing alot of waste...
If this were my tank, I would remove the tangs (IMO
, they shouldn't be kept in tanks less than 48" in length) and both angels (all 4 will get way to big for your tank anyway). Once those fish are removed, you can slowly remove the bioballs from your filter (provided you have 1-1.5 lbs of LR
per gallon. Make sure you are using RO
water for top off and for water changes. Until then, you can do frequent water changes using RO
water to help lower the nitrates.
