So after my algae blenny died a couple weeks ago, came home last night to a missing anthias. I'll start here (55 FOWLR
Trates 0 (yes tank is cycled and been running for 8 months)
2 mocha clowns
Dead algae blenny
?? (a reoccurring green/brown siphon able gunk on my sand - at first thought diatoms but has cyano
characteristics- do I need to replace the 4 bulbs in my T5 HO
Course of action-
Preparing for a 10 gallon water change. I was going to blow off the live rock with a power head, siphon all my problem cyano
, completely clean my protein skimmer and HOB
filter, and?? Is there anything else to do?? Is this what i SHOULD do? I dont know if a huge cleaning is beneficial or could be disastrous? I run GFO
and a sponge in my HOB
, the sponge I clean weekly.
I really don't know what's going on with my tank. All the water is RODI
from my LFS
, I'm good about top offs... This is aggravating me.
Here's my piece. I have some very sensitive animals in my tank (anemone and long spine) that are not very tolerant of bad water, param swings, etc, so could these fish' deaths just be coincidence as my nem and urchin are seemingly doing great?
Comments, questions, suggestions? The only reason I'm not in a completely rotten mood about this is because GSP put Diaz in his place last night. I digress, and hopefully someone can help me out here!! Thanks you guys are always helpful and I hope to be sending some Thank You's to some inboxes soon!
