Its been running since around Aug. I have decided that Im not adding anymore fish for a bit. This week when I get paid Im getting a new single powerhead and a protein skimmer. Also thinking about some glass tops.

THe clowns had been in the tank for about a month. They were looking fine then out of the blue seems like when I added the clean up crew they started looking stressed. I didnt put any of that nasty water in my tank that the clean up crew came in. So I dont know why anything could have happened there? I dont know. This is the first time in a long time Im seeing any nitrite of any amount. Even both fish stores did not register any in my tank. But anyway Im getting the protein skimmer and maybe even one of those reactors with the little beads in them. Going to spend some cash this week. We shall see.

Hm yeah that's weird if it just spiked a little. The clowns sound like they were messed up from the star IMO. They tend to be one of the hardier fish for saltwater. A skimmer should definitely help but you probably don't need the phosphate reactor unless your algae problem doesn't go away.
