It has been about three months since my last update. I had three Green Chromis in my qt. Almost 4 week and I went down to one. His original name was Gigantor because he was the soul survivor but since he got moved to the dt about three months later. I changed it to Houdini because he can hide anywhere. Now to get him some buddies!
Lessons I learned:
1.quarantining works just don't quarantine more than one fish at a time.
2. You can get your nitrates down to zero with just weekly wc
units are the way to go!
in a row does reduce your salinity. I did a wc
every day last week to get my dt down and my salinity went down to almost zero.
5. Should be number one, fishless cycling works!
6.There is no such thing as over testing your water.
7.Coralline Algae can grow w/o introducing it.
8.You don't have to feed every day.
9.feed sparingly,it saves on clean up after fish is done eating.
10. Last but not least it pays to be patient.
Now to get Houdini some friends. I want a purple firefish, a pair of clowns,a cleaner shrimp,a Pajama cardinal and Lawnmower Blenny. My question is: can I get a purple fire fish and a cleaner shrimp together?Does the shrimp need quarantine? Or should I get the Pajama Cardinal with a cleaner shrimp? Also, I am thinking about getting some beginner corals once I have my salinity up to 35 ppt(it's currently at 15ppt).I know it's low...I am still bringing it up gradually and because of #4 I ran out of salt. More will here Wed.
