I've been having problems with my 30 gal
salt water tank. I've had quite a few fish deaths since i started it in august. The deaths have been for various reasons, mostly from my own stupidity or lack of research. For example, right now, I have a six-line wrasse that is getting sick and i'm pretty sure its because my other fish is a damsel and he has been rather aggressive.
I have about 30 lbs of live rock (although its only part of it is really live), and 20 pounds of sand. I have a fairly large amount of cleaner snails, I bought a 30 gal
pack from reefcleaners.com. Ammonia and nitrite are zero, and nitrate generally reads less than 20. As far as I know that water quality is good, but, I could very well be wrong as this is my first saltwater tank.
I think that my six-line could likely die. If he pulls through and the damsel calms down i'll try to stick with it, but otherwise I may need to get some new fish...so...I want some general advice. I want so very easy fish. Certianly I would prefer interesting pretty ones, but hardiness is more important right now. I also prefer herbivores because I would prefer to not have to feed them meat or frozen foods. So yeah, what would you recommend for a cheap, easy to care 30 gal
In addition to that, any other general advice or ideas about what I've been doing wrong? I'm beginning to get a little frustrated with this whole thing.
