Well the ne guy is back. Ok here is the thing. I set up the 20 gal
long hosp. tank running copper about a month and a half ago. after a couple weeks things looked good so I picked up 3 green chromies the LFS
said they would be good to help condition the new hosp tank and the new big tank. anyway, I had to go away for a few days a couple weekends ago and we lost one. Not sure how long he was in there dead. Then I checked the water again over the weekend and my ammonia and Nitrite were very high but the nitrate was fine. I can't understand it I thought they were all related if one was high they all would be. I did about a 50% water changed and checked the water again the next day both still very high. is there anything I can put in there to keep this under control that the copper wont ruin Ie, plants, corals, etc. right now I just have some sand, a piece of pvc
and a couple fake plants. I had an Idea to take a fake plant and stick it in my sump from the big tank and see if I can get some stuff growing on there. I just put that in the sump today. Any other suggestions would be great. Thanks.
