Oh I know about the tang. I"ll make it worse though it was supposed to be a kole thats what I wanted, don't know why I wrote that, its actually a hippo and its moving on to a much bigger tank in the next few months.
The filter is a Fluval C4 Fluval C4 Hang On Tank Five Stage Power Filter To 70 Gallons 14003
I does have bio media. By the way the I would not consider the buildup in the filter to be slimey just gunky(is that even a word) not think though.
The only water that is available around me besides tap is at the various LFS
's and they all have RO
only. I have not gotten to the point of buying a system yet and just RO
is better then tap. I did not test it though. Will do that.
My cycle seemed to go relitivly fast. About 2 weeks. I started with all fully cured live rock. One of my LFS
recommended that because i was usuing cured LR
that I would prob be able to start up right away. I did wait. I did tests each day and when I finall got Amm-0, Nitrite-0, Nitrate-10 I went to 2 different LFS
's and both tested and said I was ready to go.
My nitrites are always 0 and my ammonia has been 0 until Sunday.
My nitrates are my biggest # just wated to get them down but now im looking at this ammonia.
I think I have been definatly overfeeding. When I do feed I just dont think the get enough. The heads blow all that food around and it seems like they never get any except for the firefish, he never misses. I tried to go once a day, but believe it or not whenever I walk in the room the clowns swin right up to the top and bob up and dow, its like thier waiting.
