I suppose I should mention I am currently battling dinoflagellates. I have been 1 month without a water change and am planning 1 more. I found somewhere that they will starve themselves out after 2 months and it makes sense because the go crazy after a water change.
That being said my parameters are essentially 0 for phos nitrate and nitrite. This is the only benefit (using the term loosely) of dinos, they consume them all. My nitrate may be on the rise after they start dying out. I plan to change my GFO
and carbon tomorrow to help with anything in the water column.
I am starting to think that it could be an injury from my short spine urchin. I don't currently have an anemone. Good news is she is still swimming and eating just fine today. Almost looks to be improving as far as the pop eye goes.
