after upgrading to a bigger tank 2 months ago i am still getting diotoms on my glass and sand. to cycle the new tank i added some sand from the old one which was 4months old. and added 90lbs of live rock and some of the media out of the old filter. i also added one damsel which i had in the old tank.
said i would have to wait 24 hours before added my other fish which was 2 clowns, PBT, coral beauty,
thought everything was ok so i started to add more fish , a flame angel and a royal gramma, checked levels weekly never had a problem with any thing. amnonia 0, nitrites0, nitrates between 15-20, phos 0.1ppm. but still getting diotoms i have been reading alot and what i read is that my tank has not cycled, i change 15% water weelky, but by doing this iam not helping the tank to finsh its cycle?
iam at a total loss with it all, my ca
, mag, are all out, been told in another thread to change water but that wont help my cycle.
should say that all my livestock are doing good.
would be very gratefull to any help yet again, before i start to think is it all worth it........
