Ordered some cyano meds. Sy phoning is working to slow it down.
Nitrates have been a consistent ~5ppm so that the nutrient source. I've invested in a another few jugs so I have 15 gallons of sw or 10 sw and 5 fresh for WC or top off. Trying to get everything balanced. And safe for my fish and thier friends

Guy at my LFS gave me 5 of these starfish or "starfish like creatures"
They look like starfish. A couple have six arms though. And they are all less than 2cm diameter

Asterina starfish. Common hitchhiker. They reproduce by breaking off limbs and leaving them behind to form new starfish..
