Cool, I just wish i could see her eat. I would feel loads better. lol

What about the ammonia? It has a tinge of green to the test, no trites and looks like there might be a slight reading on the nitrates. the rock was moved over on Thursday. Could that be the ammonia source?
And how do I do a PWC with a sump?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

If you have .25 ammonia now, then moving all your stock would cause a spike. Allow the bio filter to catch up for a little while, then move a fish or two at a time to play it safe.

The ammonia is most likely from die off and the tang. It should go away within a week or so.
