    I did not know that. I've always noticed it mixed fast but for some reason thought it was better to let it mix over night.

    Replacing female clown

    Fish lights came on in the morning and my female clown wasn't around. After a little investigation I could see a few hermit crabs feasting on my clown hidden deep in the rock work .:( This clown was my most active fish and ate like a champ. Never any sign of illness. I think a hermit crab...

    water change and nitrates

    Those levels of nitrate sound fine to me. I wouldn't worry about it. Also I believe it's safe to do numerous water changes without ill effects as long as the salinity and temperature match.
