Ok, so everyone is alive.


Yesterday before the dose my phosphates were at .25, my Ammonia at .25 and my Nitrates at 20ppm. Today after the 30 gallon WC my Phosphates are at 0, my ammonia at 0 and my nitrates stayed at 20ppm.

Are oxygen bubbles bad?


The way I have my wavemakers set they cause a small tornado of air bubbles.

I wouldn't have bubbles in the tank. Why are they pulling air? Too close to the surface?

Short lived. Of all the ones I tried only one nibbled on them. And that was only for a day.

Only sure fire is manual intervention. I targeted with a syringe of either lemon juice or kalk paste. Took some time but eventually eliminated all of them. No sign of any in a year.

I had amazing luck with peppermint shrimp in a tank I was looking after. I was unable to kalk anything directly due to the design of the in wall set up. A half dozen peppermints wiped out the aptasia in about a week, and I'm talking some pretty huge ones too. I never would have believed it if I didn't see it. Still, hit or miss though. If you can manually kalk paste them, I would suggest this as well.

Well, I guess I'm going to have to try my luck with the shrimp. It would be impossible with the way I have my wall setup and I'ld hate to have to re-do it.
