I don't see a refractometer in the photo, just a hydrometer. That's just not dependable for Hyposalinity treatment. I thought you got a refractometer a couple of weeks ago, no?

I have bio balls in there. I had to it was the filter o used with copper.

It will be ok i hope but the filter had no carbon. I had to slice it out for the copper treatment.

I know what i did but i had no choice i had just remembered the filter and freaked.

I have done this all wrong.

Technically now the start date due to my impatience and stupidness is 3-3-12. So by 4-3-12 they are going back to the display tank.

Which is doing fabulous minus a tiny crack i found.

Well everything looks great. Holding off on any water changes for a week to grow a better bacteria bed. My readings haven't been so hot. Im so torn by trying to expel the parasite cycle by water changing and changing too much water and starting a cycle over.

Late post i had to replace a filter by my mistake i made by doing copper and hypo-salinity.

However, im glad i changed it because i realized the carbon was missing and boy does a tiny 10 gallon need carbon.

I can't believe i was ever happy with a ten gallon.

growing is fun and painful

Today the fish look great. The gamma came back down from hiding and lives her new cup. I have the heat at 81 and the air stone going.

Ill test readings later and if perfect do a water change.

Still wiping every single thing each day.

Crossing fingers this go round.

Picking up my new Corallife light for the display tank. So excited!

Have a blessed day all!
