hi new user here! great site!
i have been in to salt water for about 1 year now and have bought over 300.00 in fish in the past year! i have a 55 gallon fish tank. with a XP2 filter rated for 75 gallons, also a ventrie protin skimmer. a 250 watt heater my temp stays about 80 degrees. and i alway do my water changes every 2 weeks! i check my ph
1 monthand its fine. next month it drops down and so on. over the last year i have bought tangs, clowns, damels, box fish, crabs, snails, you name it i have probley had it! i just bought a trigger about 3 weeks ago.
well i have one clown fish that i have had since i started and is still alive now. every thing else died. now my trigger is acting up, he always hids when i come in to the room. and some times i see him just lay on rocks like he is dead, and not even move. he/or she also scrapes him self on the rock like the has marine velvet or ick. local fish store and on line buddies told me to put low amounts of cuppermine(copper)in to tank. so i did has not made a differince yet. how should i go by trying to fix my tank problem and do i have all the right stuff to have a great marine tank. if not what do i need.
