Most people treat fish like they do floral decorations. Just replace when it dies. That's what Mr_X was lamenting and I agree with him totally. As a dive master rated underwater photographer, I am constantly torn by my own hobby.

In some ways this is like gardening. Once you get stable, don't mess with it. Just keep it clean, well fed and stable. Nature takes it from there.

Most people create their own problems by not following the basics and refusing to stock appropriate to their system.

My lvls are really good. Do have a small algae problem but I've come to the conclusion it's from the new LEDs. The sump/fuge I'm about to set up will help everything out a lot. When I got the set up is was in bad shape. I've brought it back to life
