Newbie here! I have a 35g hex saltwater which has been cycling for over 3 months. Live rock, live sand, fluval 4 filter and an Aeon 55g HOB
filter, with a small powerhead at the bottom of the tank pointed upwards. My water parameters have always been 0 and my salinity around 0.23... I had 1 yellow headed sleeper goby and 1 valentini puffer in the tank. Last weekend, I added 2 flame scallops and 2 shrimp. I also added another piece of live rock which has live toadstools on it. I bought liquid plankton to feed the flame scallops and the toadstools (told to feed only 3x per week about 1 capful to all 3, feeding them for the first time Sunday night)... I checked my water parameters last night, and everything except the Ph has risen..... Amonia is between 0 and 0.25, Nitrite is at 0.25 and Nitrate is in between 0 and 5.0... Salinity is still at 0.23. HELP!! What do I do to get the water levels back to 0? (I did a routine water change this past Saturday, right before I added the 2 flame scallops and 2 shrimp)..... Will the levels continue to go up? What do you think caused it? Again, how do I get the water parameters back to where they belong? (everyone seems fine in the tank right this minute, but worried that things might go South very quickly). Thanks for any advice, by the way!
