so I am new to this. I am using a 65 gallon tank with a Oceanic Sump protein skimmer system. Also have a couple flowheads in there as well. Probably have 60+ pounds of live rock in there.
As for fish I Have (1) Trigger (Niger) - (2) clownfish- (2) blue damsels or some small fish and (2) small tetras for some small black/white fish. (1) blue starfish , (1) chocolate chip starfish (3) snails
I had a Dog face puffer
poor guy jumped out of tank overnight after I had put a tang in there ..man was i devestated..such an affecionate fish !
Well Tang was sick from beginning i think,,,had ich,,progressed fast...died today..a week after I got her...she was a powdernose tang..**** crappy fishstores
So I am not using RO
water but using the Cholorine eliminator and nitrate eliminator yet when I test my tank its high in the "pink" . I do have some waste on bottom of tank, will be hard to vaccum with the live sand but ill give it a try. How much water should I change and how often?
Should I get a filter to put in top main tank that attaches to side of tank and filters it with a micron filter or whatever? any info will help..ph is stable and saliinity is stable at 1.025-6 ....planning on getting another dog face puffer but want to stablize tank first. Thanks
