I have a 25G SWFO tank with a royal gramma, two small percs, and a banggai cardinal. Inverts : a cleaner shrimp, 3 snails and a hermit crab. I have an Eclipse system, and I change 10% of the water each week. I'm obsessive about water quality and making sure that i feed them properly.
I don't want the system to crash - it's been up around 10 weeks now. Do I need to add a protein skimmer? Do I need to improve water flow? Do I need to add more inverts to reduce the bioload?
In around a year's time, I'll upgrade to a 90G tank, and I want to keep these guys safe and sound so I can move them there. I don't want to spend more if I can for this 25G tank, which will eventually be my QT
Any opinions and advice would be greatly appreciated! You guys are the best!
