Thanks for the reply. RO
is out of the question for me.
It's only a 30 gallon tank, and I don't want to invest insane amounts of money. As it stands, I've already gone above and beyond. LOL
So it seems my issue is with using tap water. Aside from an RO
system (which is completely out of the picture) and not using chemicals...what else can I do to get this under control?
Do I NEED a protein skimmer on a tank of this size? (currently do not have one)
Should I pick up some turbo snails? ( would this help at all? )
Should I do a water change with purified bottled water?
