I have been doing weekly 10% waterchange for my 132g am I over doing this? Because the nitrate seems to be always at 10ppm and phosphate at 5ppm. I don't want to have any algae issues and have been using RO
water which I tested with 0 TDS
I have some brown algae on the sand bed but the bicolor blenny and twin spot goby did the great job cleaning that up since I added them in last Saturday.
I am using 2 canister filter for the time being, is that the possible reason that nitrate and phosphate is there? I have a o clown, yellow tang, 10 chromis, a twin spots goby, a cleaner wrasse, a bicolor blenny. I have been doing feeding everyday since my yellow tang seems to have some black spot on him and I want him to eat A LOT to stay healthy to fight back the spot. It has now since gone but I want to maintain that way and keep him healthy and happy.
If I feed all the fish every other day is that good enough? That's what I would prefer to do but just to keep the YT happy I have got no choice. Do they need to be fed everyday? I always have a sheet of nori in there for him other than feeding him mysis shrimps, flakes, pellets etc. He especially like hormone free color enhancing pellets he gobbles them down like there is no tomorrow.
I might remove one canister filter and add a Tunze skimmer because I heard somewhere canister filter is a nitrate factory.
Anyone with any suggestion or comments you could share? Cheers.
