Good news. The less light has helped dramatically with the purple cyano
. I still have issues with the brown algae, but the two turbo snails I bought are helping with that.
Here are my levels (55g tank):
- 107.4 ppm
(the guide said this is low for SW
and invertebrates, will purple up increase my KH
Ammonia - 0
Nitrite - 0
Nitrate - 0
PH - 7.8 - 8.0
Salinity - 1.022
Temp - 78
11 hermit crabs (blue legged)
1 peppermint shrimp
1 brittle star
2? Cerith Snails (only 1 seen in a while)
9? Nassaria snails (2 dead, only seen 5)
1 Percula Clown
1 Royal Gramma
Question - My snails seem to be disappearing, or dead. At one point we had 11 nasarius snails, now i've only seen 5, including 2 empty shells. I've also only seen one cerith....Any ideas?
Also, is "turbo" snails a misnomer? Mine don't move much...
