Hi again and here's an update:
I am now down to the following fish:
3 yellow tail damsels
1 blue damsel
My latest readings as of April 21, 4:45pm:
PH - 7.7
Ammonia - 0
Nitrite - <0.3 mg
Nitrate - 100 mg
I have been dumping a product called cycle which is supposed to help jump start new tanks and maintain old ones as well. Question now is my live rocks are forming a generous layer of brown looking stuff. Algae? Some other rocks have a hairy green substance...moss? I have since added 2 banded shrimps, 4 camel shrimps, and a goby as cleanup crew. Any ideas on the brown and green stuff? Also, am I almost done with the cycle? Tank was only setup April 6, 2009.
Oh yeah, I also added 2 new canister type filters so the tank's contents are now being cycled 7x/hr. Media is the same crushed corals I had in the tank plus some activated carbon. The other filters had bio balls and ceramics which I never touched since the tank was active. Your thoughts please? Many thanks!
