as far as that ammonia, if you have some expendable lr or base rock, you could put it in to help biofiltration

I might just do that. Its back up over 1.0 again tonight and I changed out 8 gallons twice today. I going to add more seeded sponge first and change another 5 gallons, but they can't handle this for long IMO.

yea It has helped big in my qt...you may lose some life on the rock but it will still biofilter, again i think rock or substrate is only an issue due to absorbing meds

I think I will stick a rock in there. Would rather loose a rock that any of my fish.
Thanks!!

I know the bioload is high
My Angel is about 5", Tang is about 3", my heni's are about 3" each, the clowns are about 2" each, the dragonettes are 2" each and the gramma is abour 2.5".
I hate to separate them, most have been together for a time and get along well.
I have another 10 gallon, may move the clowns and gramma to it, we'll see.
