seemed like the 2 day 20% pwc did not mark any dent on my nitrates. had to do a 50% pwc last night and am thankful nitrates went down from 80 to 20 right now. am preparing saltwater again and plan another 50% pwc tomorrow. this will be just fine right? hopefully i can lower nitrates some more if not just plainly clean substrate of gunk!

WC will def lower the NO3. I question the accuracy of your test. A 50% WC should have lowered the NO3 from 80 to 40 then a 20% change should drop it to 32. Cleaning the substrate and doing PWC's can only help.

nitrate was at 80 before pwc. i did two 20% pwc in two consecutive days. apparently did nothing to lower nitrates. did emergency 50% pwc and my nitrates is now at 40 (looked like it was at 20 earlier) hopefully when i do another 50% tomorrow my nitrates will go down some more.

How many fish are left in the tank? What is the NO3 level now?

by golly! i think you're in worse of a situation than i am. 10 in a week and you are still losing 1 a week? what are your water parameters and what steps have you taken to solve your tank problem?

as for mine. just got back home. will put my youngest son to bed, take water readings, feed fish and then start 50% pwc.

just to update you guys. i was able to move the yellow eyed tang to the main tank. what it has done though is just hide into the rocks. and i do think it is also not eating well. hopefully things will turn around for the better.

my asfur angel was not as lucky though. it got caught on the intake of my ph!
