I have a new SW
tank FOWLS. It is 90 gal
and has cycled well. I am starting small and presently only have one fish in it, the foxface. All readings are good, Ammonia 0, Nitrite 0, Nitrate 20, and ph 8.0. I do not have a dKH
kit b/c I was told the sw
was buffered enough to care for it. He is happy, feeding well, actually a pig! I have had him for 3 weeks.
He is displaying some strange coloring outside what I was told was normal. At times he turns white and more often than not, he has a large black stripe on his back instead of the black dot he had when I got him. At times he fights with his reflection on the back and corner of the tank but it seems minor.
Is he displaying a health condition I need to address or is it in his nature to do this? Please help, I lost my sleeper goby this morning and do not wish to lose him as well. I believe the sleeper goby died as result of my last water change, whether it be trauma or ingesting something he ought not that was stirred up during vaccuming. The foxface has done this since i brought him home, but in different degrees.
