Thank you everyone.
I purcahsed 2 more PH
yesterday (so now 3).
Yeah, fish choice. . .I know
, but they were just so cute
. I also purchased a PO4
tester, it is about 0.2. Which isn't bad, right?
When I do water changes and top-offs. . .I use Catalina Real Saltwater. So, I don't use tap or RO
water. In some cases I use RO
from the LFS
, but mostly the Catalina water.
Okay, bioballs. . .no I didn't know I had to check them
. Actually, this is my second tank, last time I had a 55 gallon but used biowheel. . .never had a algae problem. So. . .what do I need to do with the bioballs. . . .even read that I might want to get rid of them, esp. with the LR
I have. Gosh as for the amount of bioballs (got system from friend) they sit under the tray. . .probably about 10 cups full.
Lighting: one ballast is broken, so using 65 watt (2 ) 10K and (1) Actnic (whatever it is). Hours of operation 11 am - 8 pm, I had shortened it for a while.
Feeding: Bloodworms- Puffer won't eat anything else (picky) and eats it in almost one mouthful. 2 cubes of either brine shrimp or marine blend.
