Trickle Filter with bio wheels
1 wave maker, have another but didn't like it
water info: PH 8.2-8.4 color is between both It seems
nitrate between 20-40
Weekly water changes about 2-25 percent
Temp went from 80 to 70
Feeding once a day. What they will eat in 3 minutes
Been up running well for 3 almost 4 weeks. Well actually 4 weeks now.
Been doing water changes once a week. As I said, the store said to cut that back. Not sure why. Asked him about removing the trickle filter he said no keep it running. I have this brown algae problem, all of a sudden on the sand also. I have seen worse, I do not have much. Been removing some hair algae from the wave maker. One fish was doing so great for several weeks, then looks like it got swim bladder. I had just put in a live rock. New one from pet store. Lights I leave on for a few hours a day and turn it off. No sun in from any window. I get a lot of brown stuff in the skimmer. I plan on getting a RO
have to wait until I get some money in. So what causes swim bladder, this fish wasn't bloated at all, nor where it's scales raised. It just looked normal. So I don't want to have any other fish pass away, so what is wrong with this sytem.
Fish in tank is Maroon Clown Fish, Blue Green Chromies (put them in cause they are hardy little fish) One Trigger fish, have a eel, hardly ever see him. Some live rocks, not alot. As they are like $8 a pound.
So help please, I do not like my nitrates to be that high. thanks Lynda
