I have had my tank running since november. I just bought a 90 gallon and transferred about 45 gallon of water from the orignal tank and 45 gallons of saltmix water about a month ago. I have 7 fish in the 90 gallon. An eel, toadfish, coral beauty, picasso trigger, porcupine puffer, tomato clown, and stonefish. I was having problems with the nitrates before I bought the new tank and am still having trouble. I am running a protein skimmer for up to 100 gallon and the wet dry is for a 75 gallon tank but is running on the 90. I am turning the tank over with a mag 750 I think, it may be a 950. I have 100 pounds of live rock and 40 pounds of live sand in the tank. What can I do to keep the nitrates down. My reading are as high as they go on the nitrate tester. The nitrites are no existent, no ammonia, and ph
is 8.2. Salinity is 1.24 and I keep the temperature at 78. My stonefish has not been acting right and his eyes have gotten cloudy/crusting on one side, which a guy at the LFS
told me was due to the nitrates being too high. Also my annenomie hasnt looked good either. My puffers eyes are a little cloudy too now. What can I do to get the nitrates down. Any chemical, filters, more water changes, nitrate sticks. What do you guys think? What has worked for you?
