more sad news.

this morning, 2 more clowns are gone, i have one left thats not looking well and the damsel,

nitrate and nitrite 5 ppm
ammonia 0

something has funked up my tank and i can;t figure out what, this bites!

i hope i can find homes for the damsel and clown before they die, i think i neeed to strip this tank down and start all over again, but not on marine, i want a good big system, with the alot, and i can't afford that now seeing 100$ + of fish leave me in a week

i know..

i think it might have something to do with the salinity to.. i changed salts after my 1st WC and that could be effecting them.

this always happens when i'm about to go to work... grrr!

when changing to a different salt mix you need to do small water changes with the new salt mix. it is important to aclimate you live tank slowly to the new mix

there's no info in your profile on your tank. Can you give us a basic run down?

Tank Size?
Age: (you said 6 months, but moved recently. how were things moved.)
All parameters: Temp, SG, pH and the three you gave above again.
Substrate and LR?

Any nitrites at all in a system can be deadly to the fish, it's toxic. It sounds like you've started a cycle after your move. Testing and small water changes are probalby going to be your best bet. Keep plenty of RO water and newly mixed SW on hand for the next couple of weeks.
