Not as bad as I thought! Thank you! Do you think you can manage a 50% wc at some point today? After this, dose to 1ppm amm & we can go off of tomorrows results.

Hey! I'm new to this site and new to the marine aquarium! I have a 60 gallon tank and 10 gallon quarantine tank. I started my main tank about 1 week and already have 1 yellow tail tang sailfin, 1 banded shrimp and a starfish. I had 2 listing my tank both damsels. I know I started adding fish to early but I guess I'm just inpatient. I'm waiting on on my test kit to better watch the quality of the water since I do t know what's going on? I'm happy to join this site and to get better at this awesome hobby that I enjoy with my family

Thats an improvement! Ok, without getting very scientific, I suspect your lacking in phosphates. Your nitrite>nitrate bacteria need a source of phosphates in order to process nitrite. You added some phosphate with the fish food & your bacteria are getting to work! You still have a bit of ammonia in there & I hope to see a bigger jump in nitrates tomorrow! Add another pinch or two of fish food tonight & you can start redosing amm tomorrow.
