I have a 55g, 110 aquaclear hob
, powerhead, 2 clown, coral beauty, pseudochromis, 30 lbs LR
My 2 clowns and coral beauty are sort of just sitting at the bottom not moving very much. The cb seems to be turning on the side at times. They dont seem to be eating. They physically look good just not moving. Last week it was just one of the clowns doing this, but it was only for a day. I was doing 5 gal
water changes every 2 weeks but just started doing every week. I feed them once per day. I also had a nice little button polyp on one of my rocks which is dying, along with many snails seem to by dying too.
I dont know if I could be underfeeding the fish or if the problem is bc I dont have a skimmer (which I am ordering).
Also wondering if the problem is associated with high diatoms in tank right now, (which actually seems to be getting better).
Im using filtered water from a place called windmill express that is supposed to be RO
and is cleaned on a daily basis. I had the water tested and had trace amt of phosphates in it. Wondering if this could be the prob?
My amm, nit, ph, salinity Has always been good. I check it myself and at the LFS
. The only thing is a trace amount of phosphates in the water I was using.
