Post New here!

Hi, I'm new here and excited to find this forum. We started out with a 30 gallon tank about 5 yrs ago and upgraded to 60 gal 2 yrs ago. We have several fish and some coral. It seems like I'm always struggling with the coral, which I love, almost more than the fish!

My current issue is flatworms. My tank was inundated with them before we knew what they were. I have tried 6-line wrasses and nudibranchs(?) but can't seem to get rid of them. I'm a little hesitant to try the Flatworm Exit, I don't want to kill the whole tank! Thinking about trying a Mandarin Gobi.

Also, I recently bought a test kit so I could monitor calcium and carbonates. My carbonates are almost off the chart.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I always have plenty of questions, but seldom any answers.
