Uh Oh!!!

OK So my anemonae died...

I think that got the ammonia on the rise, so my readings as of now are below.

My firefish also died, I dont understand why. It was laying beside the anemonae. Ideas on this one?

SG- 1.024
PH- 8.05
Nitrite- .5
Nitrate- Above 20 (Hard to tell)
Ammonia- 0.05
Phosphate- Trace
Calcium- 450

Could have been an ammonia spike from the anemone.

Trate is high also. Last water change? Might need to do some.

with the NO3 kinda high and the PH a little low it might be dinitrifying acid buildup ie water change needed.. are you using DSB or a fuge?

Sounds like anemone poisoning. Part of the risk of keeping one is the chance it might perish and do this... sorry for your misfortune

Several water changes to get you back to square one before adding anything else to the tank.

I am not adding anything else until this gets under control.

How much waterchanges should I keep doing? So far I am at about 60% in two days.

Just keeping changing until your water spec's return to normal.

Nitrite - 0
Nitrate - <10 (at least!)
Phosphate - 0
pH 8.2-8.4
Ammonia - 0
Salinity - 1.021-1.025 (preference whatever)
