ok i use RO
2 of these side by side.
i was just asking if i could use some detox additives to make sure ammonia, nitrite, nitrates are perfectly 0 instead of just counting on partial water changes and waiting. I would like to keep my water stress free.
On a side note, I think my damsels are hiding and losing color either maybe my levels are bad, or some damsels are really going at eachother and attacking eachother.
I have 2 black and white and 3 blue yellow tails. One b+w is really big and chasing everyone i want to get rid of him. 2 of the 3 yellow and blue hide in my rock, away from the big damsel, one is very light blue color, another is darker, but its tail is frayed, looks attacked. doesnt come out much. One has died already, I dont know if it was because it was attacked, or just stressed from one weekend when my temp went up real right and i lowered it the next day.
i dont trust my redsea test kit anymore. i heard lots of other people think they suck too. would rather get API or check it for good at my LFS
. My yellow tang is scared to approach me in the tank and usually hides in the back. the damsels come up to me when feeding - of course the ones that are scared and hiding now. At least all of them used to do it while they were all healthy and together.
All my fish tend to be on the twitchy scared side so I want to make my water more perfect. and add prime to these damsels to see if they are sick or just stressed from attack. Thoughts people? Looks like I have to do lots of trial and error. Want to get it right with these damsels or get rid of them so I can add more fish like angels, clownfish, tangs expensive fish. want the water to be right and make sure i do everything right before adding them.
