Couple of quick questions...
I have a 125 SW
, (I know I need to drop it and get LS
...know this. will do this soon), Sealife wet/dry, Aqua C skimmer, and 4 Via Aqua subm pumps for water circulation. My tank has been set up since Dec and I have been testing my water weekly. My levels have been 0 since the cycling of the tank which was about 1 month ago. I have 2 clowns, 1 damsel, and a wrasse, and 12 snails. Also have 30 lbs of LR
. Just last week I increased my temp to 80 but I am bringing this back down to around 78 in the next couple of days.
In the past few days I have just a hint of ammonia and nitrates. My ammonia is less than .25 and the nitrates are so little dont know what they are. Salinity is 1.024. I am VERY conservative in feeding and only feed every other day. My question is.....
1) I did 1 water change (10%) if that last week. should I continue to do them weekly unitl I knock out the ammonia? What else will eliminate this ammonia?
2) what to do to knock out hint of nitrates?
3) Im thinking of adding a UV
sterilizer? Any thoughts on this?
any thoughts and ideas are welcome.
