I have tested my water at the lfs
and they say I had 0 ammonia/nitrites, but I did not trust them after reading many posts here.
My readings are: (these were from a test strip. )
I assume I should do another PWC
of about 25g this week.
I have used tap water to make my salt water for the first PWC
. Could this be why my nitrates are so high?
Also I have minimal algae growth on all the rock.
I purchased tank and occumpants and about a month ago.
Durning move we saved 70G+ of the original water (made the other 50 with tap and instant ocean), all fish, inverts, and the LR
(Crushed coral). Do I need to vac the crushed coral ?

- 2 grunts (small)
- blue yellow angel
- shame face crab
- crab (with purple tip claws)
- crab (not sure what kind)
- 4 pencil urchin
- bunch of blue leg hermits
** we removed a sand perch who ate anything that it could catch (poor little cardinal and 3 damsels) and a purple urchin got sick and had to be removed.
Thanks I think I have.
Over protective father syndrom? Any advice at all is greatly appreciated.
