My 1st tank fowlr 47 gal column tank
So I have a few questions.
I transported this tank the other day and set it up with a 50 percent old salt water and 50 percent new salt water mixture.
However me being new to this I pored the water in the tank and disturbed the live sand. Well me not knowing anything later on after testing my nitrate is 80ppm.
Other tests are
Specific gravity 1.024
Ammonia 0 or close to it
My question is I'm gonna start a 9 gallon water change every three days to get rid of the nitrate level. Is this a good start??
There is 9 fish, 7 hermit crabs, 10 sea snails and 1 eel in the tank and they all are in really nice healthy shape and eat very very well.
I'll post pics later on.
