well that could be it.. pH is on the low side. I just tested it the other day and wouldnt have expected it to be so low. I've got some seachem marine buffer im going to add. Good thing I asked...
He is sorta the ever-loving boss of the tank, no one bugs him really, and I have the 3 types of food they get. He still eats well.
Im going to bet its something to do with the pH. I feel like a bad parent! lol =/
ok pH is back up to 8.3 and I'll keep an eye on it the next few days to make sure its stabalized. Hopefully I'll see an improvement.
all other parameters are 0 except nitrate is 40 (ive dropped feeding down a little in an attempt to get nitrates down further, my calerpa is doing good keeping it in check)
side curiosity - if the problem is in fact the pH being low, would that affect the angel moreso than the other fish? My fairy wrasse and purple firefish are both very colorful.
Well today I woke up to see mr angel not doing so well. Hes obviously stressed and hes starting to look splotchy and just kinda hovering under rocks. So 1st thing I did was head to the fish store and got myself a bottle of Quick Cure as per they guys recomendation, prepared 2 gallons of FW
+ buffer + quick cure and gave mr angel a dip for 60 seconds. There were definetly bits of white spots at the bottom of the bowl afterward so I think it at least worked somewhat. I was recommended to dip him like that 3 days in a row. Hopefully he gets better soon =/
