Ok so this gets kinda complicated. This is Jimbo's brother and i am trying to help him out with the because he had to go to a church retreat this weekend and won't have acess to the tank or a computer. Unfortunately I'm in college which is in florida and his tank is back home. So i have my mom testing the water parameters in the tank and I will post them and do the best i can to instruct her.
There is a lid on the tank and we have already checked for jumpers. We also checked the sump in case they managed to find a way down there. The tang could have possible slipped down there but the copper band is probably close to 3" and there is no way he could have ended up down there anyway.
I know he is having a problem with a cyano
outbreak which he has been doing regular large water changes for with out much result. He just dosed the tank with a cyano
killer med before he left trying to do a temporary fix until we figure out whats going on with these fish. He has also ordered macro algae for the sump to help take out the nitrates from the water as a long term fix for the cyano
. That hasn't come in yet but the nitrates are at 0 anyway because the cyano
is consuming it all anyway.
As soon as my mom calls me with the parameters i will post them. Please keep an eye on this post so we can try and figure out whats going on with the tank . My brother is devastated by the loose of the fish already. if the tank crashes and he looses everything he will really be upset.
Thanks for the help
