I found my copperband stuck on powerhead and where it is usually is silver turned light brown. Nitrate level is at 160 ppm
. I am going to do a water change tonight. I think the nitrates went up because one of the powerheads keeps falling and mixing up gravel. Also been had ballast capacitor blow up and had to solder a new capacitor and fuse in so 2 t5s went down for 4 hrs.
Tank-125gal 6ft long (no idea what the other demensions are)
Light-Odyssea 4x80w t5ho with timer
Protein skimmer-red sea 25-250gal triple pass
I think some of this need to be improved im working on getting a protein skimmer and i think the return pump should be alot higher gph
. Any opinions on a better setup? And id have a reef yet.
