hey guys and gals.... i got a problem but have no idea what it is...
my tank has been going for about 5 weeks
all the lvls look normal 0, 0, 0
what a good ph
lvl? mine is at 7.8 probably to low?
the sand i bought first and put the live sand over is turning black in one area =/ anyone know what thats from and if its bad?
couple days ago my blue hippo tang died =/ he had been in the tank about a week and was doing fine.... swimming around... eating... ect. and one morning i woke up and he was just lying down on the sand and he was dead about an hour later.
the next day my spotted damsel (er whatever its called) i found in half in the back of my tank.
today my maroon gold striped clownfish is looking rather sickly and hasent eaten for 2 days, also looks like he may have a little bit of fin rot on one fin.... he looks like he is gonna die soon =(
is there anything i can do to help him?
also my striped damsel lookes like he is breathing very hard.
i have a descent amount of inverts... 1 serpant star, 1 cc
star, 2 emerald crabs, bout 10 snails (who seem to be multiplying rather fast) about 10 little crabs, and the other day i got this little slug thing that looks like walking algae and a decorator crab (not sure if thats his real name, just what the lfs
called him) he looks very camoflauge and sorta like a spider.
is there any way the decorator crab could have anything to do with this?
i think ive been feeding them the right amount.... i got these little packets called tetranatures delca whole brine shrimp and bloodworms which i feed about 3/4 of the pack a day. they gobble it up pretty fast, probably in about 3 mins but there is always some left on the sand.
also , do feather dusters need special light?
thx so much guys/gals
