Quick run thru of my tank... It is 55 gallon read the dummies guide and a lot of stuff online. ran tank with just water and filter, cascade 700, for 3 weeks. added 10 lbs of live rock and 35 base rock set them in for another 3 weeks. added a damsel and ten hermy crabs, no problems. bout 5 snails in there now too. I keep up regular weekly testing nothing has spiked my ph is at 8.0.. salt at 1.024... o yea and i have a sally light foot crab in there, he kicks but.
so, i have gotten the customary clown fish. Two of them. Supposedly mated, per lfs
. they stick real close and it seems to b true. It has been 48 hours and they have survived seem healthy but will not eat. Ive tried with the powerhead off. still they stay in the corner. i have omega one marine flakes and freeze dried brine shrimp. The freeze dried stuff is pretty useless it floats on top and even my lively damsel wont go up there to eat. I guess im gonna go try and get a new food. just not sure what. pellets, frozen, something else??
