Drove me ..errr... him nuts for awhile trying to figure it out.

Just in case.

good point

CaptainAhab, that is so funny. Nice one...Welcome angelinafay, You did not mention what kind of lights you have for your tank. How long has it been set up and you are hitting the limits of a 20g tank as far as fishes. What if any corals do you have now. and what are your water parameters, ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and salinity.

i don't know my parameters, my dad is going to check it tomorrow! i have yet to get my own test kit. my tank has been up for about 4 months, i just started putting fish in about 1 1/2 months ago. i have a 50/50 light. i turn it on about 730 am and off at about 930pm. today i actually seen my heater come on and go off a lil while later, so i think it's working, but it could be that the tank sits close to a ceiling air vent. i just started getting 2 feather dusters growing..one on the mossy rock and one in the sand. today i got a sand sifting starfish(didn't have to pay for it)...are they okay to have?? i feed flakes in the morning and brine shrimp or krill every two days...thats what i've been told to do. correct me if i'm doing something wrong please.

I only feed my tank every other day. Been OK for 11+ years. Make sure you are feeding vitamin fortified brine. Regular frozen brine has no nutritional value.

You need to get a test kit. API makes a good kit that is not to hard to read. You also need a means to check your SG (specific gravity) or salinity. How do you check SG when you do water changes?
MY bad...I guess your Dad does that.
I don't think you have enough light for an anemone.
That slug that you have is a nubibranch. Is it green in color. Some are really bad for corals.

If your Temp drops at night 1 to 2 degress you should be fine. Mine does every night and I have no Issues.

Also you mention you have 2 Clown Fish? A Nemo which is and Ocellaris Clown and a Tomato Clown Fish? In the same tank? If so I would suggest removing one before one of the 2 become stressed from all the fighting and die.

Sorry for your lost. Without a picture it's hard to say if it is dead. By fine do you mean 1.025-1.026? If you can please give us #'s.
