8O Wow... 8 clowns in 10 gallons! That is definitely not taking it slow, but I understand that the person you got them from had to house them somewhere... I guess. But I'd make up a BUNCH more water right NOW... a bunch. I'm guessing your ammonia levels are going to spike a bit and you'll have to do some major PWCs daily (maybe like 50%?) to keep them in check.

I just got done with 3 chromis in a fully cycled 10g QT and had ammonia issues for 9 days out of the 4 week quarantine period. I can't even imagine 10 fish in a 10g QT.
Yeah he was like If i can't find no one to take them I will have to flush them. I was like WTF. People like that should not own a pet PERIOD. I was like well i will take them all... Of course I am bitting my fingernails over here.... LOL

My 75 gallon is doing well DIatoms started appearing on Monday..

My params on it look well. I also added 2 watch man gobys from the same guy that gave me the clowns. I put the Goby pair in the 75 gallon. They look happy but shy.

I checked the params on the 75 and it looks good.

I checked the params and everytihng looks good.

Is the API Master Saltwater testing kit any good? If it is then the water params check ok on the 10 gallon as well...

I use it and it came highly recommended by quite a few people.

Guys i found my problem. My AC in my house was going bad slowly. That is what was causing my tank to get hot. MY AC went out completely on Friday night and it turned out to be a bad coil inside my house. Now my tank stays at 77-78 at all times with no fans .
