Im a newbie to the site, but i have kept marine fish for three years now, and i thought i had it under control!!!
Problem is i have recentley recieved my new tank 2 x 2.5 x 3.5 approx 600 litres with sump.
Removed everything out of my Aqua one UFO700 that i had, had no problems with apart from a does of whitespot aprox two years ago.
Set new tank up with existing live rock and corals, used mature water, but used new sand, everything going well for the first month then out of the blue i lost my copperband, did the normal checks nitrite, ammonia, ph all well with in the limits, checked nitrate and it was through the roof.
Ive done a 100ltr water change today, and its still off the scale!!!!!!
Help required, any ideas on what i can do?
I also have a skimmer that just dosnt seem to be working, first time ive used one, its an Instant Oceam Skimm 800, with out instructions, it seemed quite obvious as to what was needed but, i have been unable to get any bubbles out of it!!!!!!
