So today I woke up to what I THOUGHT was a dead hermit crab... Luckily, this time, it WAS only a molt! I can still see the little guy in his shell... Sooo... One question! Is it at all possible that the molt could cause a nitrite spike? Params were good a day ago. I last checked a day or so after adding the clown to make sure the BB was keeping up with the new bioload. Well, just tested to make sure all was well and ammonia was 0, nitrite was 2, and nitrate is less than 5...
Oh! I also forgot to mention, I found that I actually already have a Nassarius snail! Haha! I guess when I added the CUC he dug down so fast that I didn't even know he was there! I had a slight mix up because the guy threw in a bunch of empty shells for the hermits in the same bag as my actual snails... Thought the dude ripped me off for a minute... Selling me an empty Nassarius shell... Haha
Anyways... The clown is doing good, does laps around the tank and surfs in the powerhead flow... Silly clown! My stepson came home from his dads house on Sunday and named him Marlin... lol, what four year old DOESN'T name his first clown fish nemo!?!? He went with the dads name and said we need to go get another one so we can name it nemo... This kid is smart!
Apologizes for the ranting... Thanks for reading!
