Ok, I am new to sw
, but not to fish keeping. I recently set up a 90 gallon fowlr
tank. I added the salt, 60 lbs of live sand (plus 50 lbs of pool filter sand), about 50 lbs of lr
, 50 of base. I an running 2 canister filters, and have a mini fuge I built out of an old aquaclear 500 with sand and rubble.
I dropped 3 shrimp in a filter sock almost 2 wks ago. I am getting test results of: pH 8, Alk
300, Nitrites 0, Nitrates 20, and Ammonia 0. Also, I am getting some diatoms on the rock, sand, and glass. I unfortunately did not take any tests prior to this.
The shrimp are still in the bag, should I dose more ammonia, or let it be. Not planning on adding any fish for another week. What do I do with the shrimp, should I add some cleaning crew, etc?
