I have a tank that's about 1 year old and all readings (other than Nitrates) are perfect. I have a Yellow Tang, an Arrow Crab, an Aruba Damsel, Skunk Cleaner Shrimp, Percula Clown, Barbed Golby and 2 new additions (Med Tenticle Anenome and an starfish --- sorry, not sure what it is). -- Of course, there are a few crabs and snails for Algae control as well.
The tank is 38 gallons and has LR
, a MAGNUM 350 canister filter using carbon. The lighting is a CoralLife (power compact) --- 36" with one 96 watt 10,000K Daylight and one 96 watt True Actinic 03
Blue Compact Fluorescent Lamps plus two 3/4 watt Lunar Blue-Moon-GLow LED
I feed the tank daily 1 cube of frozen Spirulina Enriched Brine Shrimp or Emerald Entree (alternating every few days). I've also been doing about 20% water changes every couple of days to try and get the Nitrates down. I'm using tap water and letting it sit in a bucket for about 1 day to let salt disolve... I aslo use "Prime" to remove the Chorine, Ammonia, etc and detoxify Nitrates and Nitrites.
My test kit is "Saltwater Master Liquid Test Kit" made by Aquarium Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
Any advice is appreciated.
: My gallery has everything except for my 2 newest additions.
ALSO... If anyone knows why my Anenome appears to be losing it's color, then please feel free to let me know...
THANKS IN ADVANCE.
