There was a small spike after setting up the tank of about 0.5-1 ppm
ammonia that only lasted a day or two. I have about 50-60 pounds of cured live rock in there from a lfs
. There are a bunch of little starfish and pods
on it. The tank sat fallow for a couple of weeks after the spike just to make sure the params did not change. No ammo or Trites since. The Trates were fairly high in the beginning but pwcs brought them down.
Sadly my coral beauty passed in the qt tank last night. I will get the dottyback in there today.
The mushroom coral is doing great.
I'm really hoping it is not velvet. My 55 is also in a fallow period (4 weeks now) because of marine ich. I've had a rough time getting started with saltys.
Thanks again for your help.
