I've had my SW
tank online since June 2012, the livestock seems to be doing fine, as you can see from my profile, I have a sump with macro-algae and DSB
. The sump is only about a month old, but I have a decent amount of green algae on the walls of the refugium and chaeto seems to be doing well. My water quaility is as follows:
Nitrate: 20-40 ppm
I am feeding a small amount every other day, flakes one day and frozen the next. No matter what I do, I can't seem to make my nitrates come down. I had a yellow rock polyp that all of the polyps died on, other corals seem to be doing okay, I have a trumpet, GSP, small zoa frag, and red chili.
