Im redoing my tank as we speak!!! I've got some base rock I'm putting in as well as additional live rock but not quite finished with QT on the live rock! I will post a pic when I get it sorted. I've been looking around for some really cool aquascape ideas. I need to stop moving stuff around! LOL!

I would take it to my LFS and have them test it.

It sounds like your test kit is off. If your ammonia levels are still up after the LFS tests it, look for a source...dead snails, crabs, etc. make sure you may not be missing something and do a water change.

I've never done this...so I'm NOT recommending it but I'm curious as to what others have to say about it just for reference. There are a number of products for saltwater tanks that contain nitrifying bacteria in them. I'm wondering if you added some, if this would help you. If there is no source of found (like something dead or decaying), your local store test shows ammonia levels ruling out your test kit, and you are not overstocked, then maybe adding something like this could help get your bacteria levels up. Like I said, I'm not recommending it but curious as to if it may of helped someone else in a similar situation.

Hi Niki & everyone,

My water parameter is getting much much better, but I don't know why it is a little yellow. Not sure it causes from high in Nitrate? Please advice on how to bring down Nitrate value and fix the yellow water issue.

My parameter:
pH: 8.2
KH: 7dKH
Ammonia: 0.1mg/ L
Nitrite: 0.5mg/ L
Nitrate: 100mg/ L
Calcium: 475ppm

BTW, when I got back from 4 days business trip, my purple firefish and Lipstick tang are also disappeared and couldn't find any left over, what is that suppose to mean? No sign of jump off and none in filter.

You need to do a water change if your nitrates are high. Your water is yellow?

Ahhhh...sorry, on my cell and didn't read the whole thing! If your fish are missing its highly likely they are no longer living and your CUC did their job. That may be why your water is not clear. I would do some digging so you can make sure you don't have anything dead in your tank and do a water change.

Weird bcoz this morning at 3am I still saw them, but when I woke up at 9am....none of the 2 were there....the water is getting 5% yellow for 8-9 days now.


This morning, I dig up all of the sand and couldn't find any. The Naso tang is about 4" and firefish is 2.5"...there is no way for disappeared or dying without me finding. Ummm....
