I was just wondering if what I have in my tank is normal because for the last few weeks, the only color I see is brown.
It's been over two months since I first started to cycle the tank and in that time, my dry rock and live sand have completed cycling, I think. I have 0 ammonia and nitrites, and about 20ppm of nitrates (probably from the dead snails). I got 5 hermit crabs, 5 cerith snails and 5 nassarius snails at my LFS
when the nitrites hit zero.
My crabs have eaten 3 nassarius and 2 cerith snails and I'm wondering is it because my tank isn't finished cycling? Everything's brown... no green anywhere. Are the inverts getting hungry?
Thanks for any help.
Here is my setup, 36G Bowfront Conversion w/ Sump
