Do you have any hiding places (pvc
) in there?
I am checking my parameters daily because it is a new QT tank and has not cycled yet. I can't quote you numbers off the top of my head other than the salinity is 1.018 and the ph is 8. My nitrites, nitrates and amonia are moving around at the moment and the water changes are to keep them in check. The Asfur Angel is the largest one in there and he is about 4-5 inches nose to tail. The Hippo Tang is about half dollar size at best and the Sailfin Tang is aprox 2". I see very little chasing going on between the three and they do use the PVC
fittings I have in there. I thought that it might be nipping as well by the Angel even though I never actually see it happening. I just wanted to be sure it wasn't another medical issue occuring. Also the QT is a 20 long vs tall, not that the long vs tall affects the total volume.
