I am not sure if im using RO
but im pretty sure it is because they offer it as a service at my LFS
. I actually purchase my water from my LFS
because for me its easier, and I am going to stop tonight on the way home from work to ask them, and pick up some live rock that is rubble. I would rather spend the few hours a day watching the tank instead of mixing water and salt. Besides I do not have a fiter at my home. The water I purchased is premixed with salt, and is already 1.023 so its right on the money for me. I feed my fish once a day in the evening when they are active and swimming arround. I am going to take out some of the bio balls and clean them tonight. Im only going to do a few, and go from there. I was thinking of just getting a different color bio ball, and then exchange one set for the other over the coarse of a few weeks to see if that helps. I have about 50 lbs of live rock. Here is a pic of my fish tank www.neonhybrid.com/weblog/images/fishtank.JPG
When I moved the tank, i kept all the substrate which i now know is crushed coral, and about 90% of the water. I know the bio balls have never been cleaned, so im going to start there.
I understand that everyone is trying to help and its really appreciated, but I am going to be leaving in about an hour and a half to go home, and I need to get an answer on the rock. Is it ok to remove all the bio balls, then put some rock in then put the bio bals over it? I want to remove a few bio balls a day and replace them with rock. Is this possible? Can someone please read over my posts and help me out, Im really worried about my fish, and i want to try and get this thing working correctly
