Your help got me to this point THANK YOU

Well its been 5 weeks and thanks to you my nitrites are non existent, ammonia is like 10, pph is 82 salinity is perfect, just past the brown stage and nitrates are way down again.

On that note...My 3 damsels are doing awesome so yesterday I went and bout a gobie (sp) and a yellow tang. They are doing great, looks even better.

Thank you for all your help, couldnt have done without you

hmm a little worried about the ammonia being 10, it should be 0 by now... I would test the water again to confirm the high amonia reading and try to get it down. This can be accomplished by improving your biological filtration via more live rock.

55 gal FOWLR
Euro-reef 5-2 skimmer, 29 gallon sump
3x penguin 1140 ph
2x65 10,000K and 2x65 03 Acintic
40lbs cc/30lbs argonite sand mixture
80lbs keys rock (www.liverocks.com awesome stuff)
25lbs fiji/tonga lr
10lbs lace base rock (now hapily live with lots of coraline growth)

Very worried about the amonia as well. With the added bioload of adding more fish too quickly it is bound to rise. What test kit are you using? See if the LFS will test your water for you and compare the results. You might want to consider taking the new fih back until the situation is under contro. Amonia/nitrites NEED to be at zero before adding any more fish.
