I am new here, actually this is my first posting.
To fill you in I have a salt water tank (go figure), it's 180 gallon+sump. The tank has been running for about 3-3 1/2 months. So far I have 4 clowns, 1 flame angel, 2 fire fish, 1 banggai cardinal (the other didn't make it), 2 skunk shrimp, and a handful of snails and hermit crabs. I also had a sixline wrasse, but he died this morning (unknown why that is) after having him for a month+.
Okay now for my problem. I added a rose bubble tip anemone about 2 1/2- 3 weeks ago. It moved all over the tank, looked good. I had to physically move him a few times. He was getting very close to power heads.
A few days ago he looked terrible, went to my lfs
my calcium had significantly dropped off and was at 300. I now am boosting calcium and things seems to be back to normal. The rose opened up again and looked great, he even found a new spot that seems to make him happy.
Well I came home from work tonight and my rbta didn't look good at all, I'm trying to figure out what's going on with this guy. One day he is fantastic and the next he looks awful. My stress levels can't take much more of this. Please if anyone can help Id greatly appreciate it. This is my fish reef tank and first anemone.
Will add pictures if I can figure it out.
