We if you are counting me are Not going to set up a SW
tank. I am still having issues keeping everyone alive I did lose my new catfish last night
and I seem to be having other issues as well. Trying to think how to really describe them. So inanswer to your question I dont see a sw
tank fitting on the dressor so I will just have to stick with what I got.
BOB and Judge have seen me since i put water in the tank wow a month already...
I had 3 tetra's (lost 2 with in days, the third on mon) and a ghost shrimp after about a week (molting issue, 2nd molted just fine) and my catfish which i had brought home sat last and he was gone last night.
Water params are
ammno - none detected since about 10-12 days ago
nitrite (bad one) same as ammno except it dissappeared a day later
nitrate (good one) was steady about 15-20 range but has dropped to nil in last 2 days
water soft, no clorine(even with out cond.), and i cant rememberthe other tests or#'s but was told they where ok no wait ph ~7
I check all about 3 times a day am lunch and pm
first fish (neon tetra, guppy, shrimp I got on mothersday)
next set my stowaway snails showed up just after mem day
then 3 mollies, 1 catfish (max size 1 1/2 in) and a mystery snail I got on the 31st
2nd someone had babies (not sure who but they are growing and are almost to big for anyone to eat) some ~5 or 6 I caught and have in a net breeder on sidfe of tank but there are more that where to fast and are in main area
losses all 3 tetras- 2 within days 3rd a fewdays ago (I realize now they arent the best in a new tank)
1 ghost shrimp -as I said molting
1 catfish- not sure of the cause really but would like a little advice or thoughts
so couple Q's (I will explore in a bit and then find proper posting but gonna pic brains here too)
1.Water has recently (since newest fish) gotten well cloudy isnt the word but maybe extra bubbly? checked in white cup no color, same in black cup
2.my plants are not as happy and seem to be coated brown? and have some die back. (they where showing new growth last week and week before)
3. nitrates have gone away
so any thots on those issues would be great I will be repeateing the questions elsewhere once i get out the map and find my way around
