Its been 2 weeks since my BC14 finished the cycling process. i have a clown fish, a bunch of snails, and 2 macroalgae(chaeto & red gracilaria).
API Water Test Results:
Ive been doing 25~50% PWC
for 4 days now sometimes twice a day, but my nitrates still stays at 20ppm. I dont use the bio balls, only Filter floss and a bag of carbon w/ zeolite. My tank has 15lbs of LS
and 13lbs LR
. Running it with koralia 425.
Its very strange, cos even how many times i do PWC
it still wont go down. I'm getting skeptical about my API nitrate test kit, do test kits expire?
my clownfish acts strange sometimes. A few times during night time when the lights are off, he swims back and forth and sometimes headbutts the glass, like chasing something, i dunno. Is it normal for a clownfish to act like that or there's something wrong?
