Nope wasn't looking ill. I was gone for about 4 days then came back Friday night. Didn't really pay attention Friday was feed the fish feed me and goto sleep. Sat looked fine. Yesterday I noticed shrimp like hanging off it and it was swimming near the top. Then today laying in a corner not moving with shrimp crawling all over it. Not sure of exactly when I started tank but I know it was up for a month and a half before I added flame angel. Did a fish in cycle with the yellow tails.

I definitely wouldn't sell everything, it can be frustrating and expensive sure but worth it in the end. I would add more live rock in a tank that size to help with filtration. I have 32lbs in mg 20 gallon nano reef tank. Also lots of research, never hurts

What kind of water are you using? What are you testing for? It's good practice to test regularly and keep a logbook of your results. That way you can see any swings in parameters. I agree with adding more rock, try and aim for around 50-60 pounds. If you no longer have any livestock now is a good time to add the rock and in a way, start a new...

I agree here, if you no longer have live stock. Try cycling with out fish. I let my tank cycle for 2 months before adding anything. Tanks been stocked for about a month and a half with no big issues besides a little brown algae, which it went away recently

Maybe invest in some power heads for circulatio, do a good water change and see what your levels are after testing. I'm only 4 months into my first salt tank but ill help where I can. I usually prowl this site an hour or two a day lol, and for a few months before I started my tank.
