Hey guys its been a while sense i have been on here.
i started my 10 gallon reef tank may of last year and well after a full year i decided that it was time to move up to a 20 gallon tank.
so i bought ten more pounds of live sand and a couple more pounds of live rock (i already had 20 pounds) after adding all that and getting the new tank set up i moved the rest of my rock over to the new tank and bought a new light (130 wat pc
). i knew it would through up a mini cycle so i was scared of losing alot of stuff. (might i add all the corals i have payed for still have not been moved into the new tank they are in my brothers 29 gallon thriving so why move them right?)
well good news is after the move all my fish lived (clown, blue damsol, high fin banded goby) sense then i did by one more clown sense i had the room. bad news is the clowns killed the goby (well kind the popped one of his bladers and now he can barely swim) and my BTA didnt make the move which was very sad.
confused on why my bta died (being it was fine when i turned the lights off and died when i turned them on) i ran some test and every thing seemed fine. i dont have the exact numbers because i dont remember nitrate was a little high but thats all. or so i thought......
i started testing other things and my calicum was through the ruff and i mean scary high 820ppm is what it tested at today now here is the thing i dont dose cal because i have no need to so why is it so high and how do i get it back down so i can move my corals back into the tank?
i know i have been rambling but that is my question how do i deal with the calicum
