This is true... Plus ur filter system will help.

Hope ur fishies pull through. I think it's animal abuse but oh well...

I might try the carbon. I'm sure the fish will be fine...

Hello again. My fish are doing great and my water is finally crystal clear. My only problem now is what is what I'm pretty sure is a diatom bloom. I've done some research on it and I'm thinking of grabbing a couple snails or peppermint shrimp. Any advice? Should I wait a little longer? My ph is 8, NO2 is .50ppm, NO3 is 30ppm and ammonia is .25.

To be totally honest, I would address the parameter readings first. A water change is a must. there should never be any ammonia or nitrites. ever.

If you add shrimp they might not like it too much, they are very sensitive.

The brown algae or diatoms will burn themselves out shortly also, so don't be concerned about it unless it really doesn't appeal to you.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
