Hello new to forum

Kinda got sucked into a marine tank. Friend gave me one and here I'am today with one. 2 clowns and a diamond goby. Also 1 of four turbo left. I noticed tonight I have amphipods in my sump tank. I only feed once a day is this enough? 8 months into this project. Currently fighting aptasia. I see small what looks like feather dusters but not growing very fast. Am I doing things right?

Hello new to forum

Yer sounds like you are doing things correct. Some people think once a day is too much food for saltwater fish. But I think that's fine as long as your not overfeeding. Overfeeding and strong lighting will cause the aiptasia to grow. But you can easily remove them by getting an aiptasia eating file fish or with these special laser pens or lemon juice. Loads of options as far as killing the little things. Amphipods are good it just shows your tank is maturing but if you have loads you might be overfeeding. The feather dusters are fine I really like how they look and I let them grow in my tanks. Hope this helps.

Good to have you on the forum.

Out of curiosity what size tank is this and what equipment are you running on it?
