I have a 26 gal
set up with 30lbs live rock, bakpak skimmer, Fluval filter, two perculas, 2 regal tangs, a rose bubble tip, a xenia, a plate coral, bubble coral, frogspawn and a couple mushroom corals that has been up since July 7th.
It has been stable (0 ppm
ammonia & nitrite, 10-25 ppm
nitrate, 80C, 1.022 sp gravity, and 8.1 pH) since August. I justa added this last weekend the tangs, the frogspawn and the bubble coral. All the new inhabitants are doing well.
The problem: The pH has dropped to 7.8, all other readings are stable. I am adding buffer starting last night to slowly bring it back up to 8.1-8.2. My rose anemone has closed up and began "drooling" dark red stuff and occasionally some white
. I moved her to a quarantine tank with good water quality.
What is wrong with the rose and how can I help her?
