There's a bivalve attached to my new live rock, maybe 3x4 inches, stained completely red with coraline. I thought he was long dead until he started moving around today.
This is my first salt tank and water params are amm 2.0 ppm
, nitrite .50 ppm
, nitrate 20 ppm
on day 3, which is stellar, but will he survive the cycle? What can I do to help him survive? Should I move him into a smaller tank that I can keep relatively ammonia-free until the main tank cycles? How does one detatch a clam? What/how do I feed or supplement? I'm not sure what kind of bivalve he is so idk if clam care webpages apply.
Also, my PH is only 7.6. How do I up it?
