My amm is 0 nitrite 0, nitrate is less than 5. SG
1.023, ph 8.2... like I said these are the only parameters I have checked for. I dont know why I have diatoms other than its a new tank. Most of the ditaoms cleared up but came back after I got rid of about 50 snails. So your saying you cant have good parameters and still have the presence of diatoms???
I attached the xenia to the top pf a rock with a tooth pick and rubberband. hopefully he makes it. Any other suggestions.
