That's what I've been trying to do. They are very small hermits right now

Saving a tank takes just as much work as starting a new one. If I would have known I'd probably wouldn't have done it

The starts always hard as learning as u go unless done it before. I never had fish before started this and love it now. Once it's settled u will find things a lot easier to keep on top off

I've had fish since I was a kid. Largest tank I've had was a 120 lake Malawi cichlid tank

Dillution is the solution to pollution.
Wc's are tour best friend when ur params are out of wack. I would steer clear of vodka or sugar dosing. As well as phosphate reactors. I run a refugium with a few mangroves and some cheateo and a skimmer( I dry skim a week a month only) Never ran a gfo reactor or dosed anything other then kalkwasser on my Ato. Sometimes in this hobby simplicity is key.

I've been doing water changes. Doesn't seem to help at all. I was thinking about getting macro algae copods and amipods. I was reading somewhere that the macro will help my problems

I'm not sure. This guy I know runs them in all his tanks. But I've also realized what works for one tank may not work for others.

If you can't get ahold of the nitrates and phosphates, you might want to try out a reactor to bring them under control. I run one on my tank and do believe it helps. Seperate pump and it is pretty simple to run.
