i have been home since sunday night, the tank was being fed once a day while i was gone, they wouldnt have been able to notice any difference, all that they knew was to feed the tank. all of the corals seem to have made it through the stress, they didnt look too good yesterday but now it looks like they will all make a recovery. the temp was down to 78 and went back up today. the nitrates went over 25ppm which is unheard of in my tank. i did a PWC
as early as possible which was today. i cleaned up my filters it the old pwc
water. there was a big sandstorm of what may have been nasties from what was in the back of the nanocube on the bottom of the tank. there was sand or nasties for almost an hour but the star was still a little torn up already before i even got home from my vacation. i noticed that it wasnt doin too good rite away cuz first off it hadnt moved then second off the legs were ripped up. i guess i just gotta monitor the tank for now and get a better person to watch over the tank. parameters are back to normal now with nitrates at 5 ppm
. still thinkin about a wrasse and maybe another star in my future for the tank.
