Hi guys. Got one for the gurus.
Tank is going good, so I bought a rock with some neat ricordea and other mushrooms i cant ID (can't find the exact ones). Well, the ricordea is doing awesome, but these green neonish mushrooms are melting away and their flesh is just dying! SUCKS!
I just tested my levels right now:
pH - 8.0
trIte - 0
trAte - 0
Ammo - 0
- 1.022 - 1.023
I didn't realize my alklinity dropped slightly from where it was a few weeks ago, also pH went down .2
Is this killing the poor little guys? They looked very healthy when i got them honestly. I don't think the lighting is the problem, as they are mushies. The ricordea is flourishing, it has clearly grown since i got it, but the others are bleaching out and they are dying with fuzzy patches appearing where the skin is dying and all that. Very sucky, again!
What do you think - is the Alk
to blame? How can I remedy?
P.S. i ordered phos and calc test kits but they haven't come yet
