I have a 29 gal QT
with a BB and some PVC
elbows for fish to hide in. I have a marineland penguin 200 with bio-wheel and a whisper 4, and a 150 watt heater.
I, for the life of me, cannot get the -ites
, or ammonia to drop. Ph is okay and the SG
I have 2 domino damsels and 1 green chromis in there along with a clown trigger(so far he has left the damsels alone). I feed the clown and the others once a day. I have been doing 10 gal
of water change a week for the last two weeks to no avail!
Nitrites: Off the scale
The tank has been up and running for about 4 weeks with just the damsels in it, the trigger was added last thursday. I also noticed some ick on the trigger so i will be treating the tank with copper as soon as i get these water issues under control. I do use tap water for top off water and have no problems in my 55 gal
. I am at witts end. Please someone HELP!!
