hi everyone, im alex and i'm all new to saltwater and all this forum business.
Ive had to join because i really need some advice from people with experience as things are going wrong and i dont know what to do.
ive already posted this somewhere else but im not sure how these sites work so im not sure where it is!!
i own a 60litre biorb life. the tank has been set up around two months now and contains live rock, 4 hermit crabs and 2 clown fish.
to start off the levels in my tank aren't excellent, they currently stand at
i did a water change a few days ago which made no difference what so ever so am planning to do another tomorrow with RO
water instead of tap water. if that doesnt work i dont know what else to do.
Another concern is my clown fish, when i got them 3 weeks ago they were small but have recently grown a lot. one seams to be missing parts of the top fin and it looks like they may have been nibbled. it also hovers near the heater a lot at night time. the other is acting fairly normal but that also sometimes goes and hovers near the heater, i have seen it nipping the other clown with its fin missing but they are both eating normally and seam to be swimming fine, the unusual behavior only started a few days ago after i did the water change.
any advice people could give me would be great as my local fish store where i got them from seam to be useless.
