Parameters at 0 ( ammonia, nitrates & nitrites) PH at 8.2 as of last night and Saturday
... When my wife saw that the parameters were at the point where I have for so long said we needed to wait to get any life stock she went ahead and got life stock...on Saturday...she got a CUC of 5 turbo snails, 5 hermits crabs, and 5 smaller white shell crabs she also got a bristle starfish and a emerald crab. So last night I got a power head and a skimmer...the skimmer I could not figure out nothing but small bubbles came out in my display tank while it was on. The power head is working great. So questions, the life stock seems to be feeding from the algae but should I hurry and get another source of food for them? Ive had a turbos snail that came with one of the live rocks that i bought about 2 weeks ago and had done good but now he has more life stock to fight for food. My water has been evaporating pretty fast so I guess that has help with the params, as I add water is it the same as a water change? The skimmer I go is used, so have no reference o how to hook up properly to prevent all those bubbles... Thanks in advance for ur advice, all comments are welcome...looking to learn as much as I can...
