I've had my tank up and running for about 3 months now. Bought my first clown fish about 4 weeks back and he was looking great and doing fine.
Last week I bought an anemone for him and a small regal tang at the same time.
The tang is still fine although he does tend to hide in the rocks alot.
The Anemone I'm not too sure about. It ate a prawn the day I bought it but it just seems a little sad :-( . I know my lighting at the mo isn't great (Compacts) but I intend to change to LED
's in the near future for him. He has deflated twice but after reading up it seems that this is the norm.
Anyway, I woke this morning to NO nemo ;-(. I can't see him anywhere in the tank so i'm thinking he must of died in the night and something has eaten him.I
I just cant understand why he's died after looking so bright last night.
Can the anemone give anything off if he is unwell ?
I do have a xanthid crab somewhere in the tank which I've been trying to catch, could this have eaten Nemo ?
I've tested my water and the results are:
PH 7.4 (I am struggling to get this up! Any ideas ?)
Calcium 440 ppm
7 (125.3 ppm
Any advice or help would be great
