So I should just let the diatoms go and they will go away? I have 25 astrea snails in there. They are a waste of money. They literally have to be retarded. I have spent the last 2 days doing nothing but turning the little suckers up right. I don;t know what is bad, I don't have the time to sit down and do hours of research on animals that will eat the animals I want to keep. I used RO
water so there wouldn't be an algae bloom. I spent extra money not to get silica based sand so I wouoldn't have the algae bloom.
I have a boat load of anemones that I'm told are aiptasia and I have to get rid of them.
I thought I did everything like I should have but it still seems to not be worth the $1500 that I put into it. (and I got off cheap) I thought this was going to be relaxing, but it's has been nothing but stress. Let's put it this way. It is not much fun always always worried what you're doing is going to end up costing you more in the long run.
