I love when people say, "All my parameters are where they should be"

 

lalani, can I use the :facepalm: in here?

 

 

Hey Gromet, the worst thing you can do on this forums, is get defensive or attack the regulars. It always ends in the thread getting closed and which doesn't help anyone. Is this your first attempt at saltwater?

so where did you do your research at? post some links? did you look at any scientific data, or get advise from people who wernt trying to make a quick dollar? Most people here have no financial gain to steer you wrong however there are many lfs who only care about making a few dollars or forget you have a small tank.

bio spira for starters $. brand new tank with crap filtration $$, brand new tank with crap filtration is ridiculously stocked $$$, noob came back for yet another tank set up for failure $$$$, they goT you good $$$$$.

 

dude, seriously, take all those fish back (anemone too), let the tank cycle, read as much as you can here while the tank cycles, start over. Your fish and your wallet will thank you.

 

My reef tank did not use bio-spira. It went through a full cycle before ANYTHING besides the Live sand and live rock went in... (except the CUC) after a few weeks).

 

Livestock only started getting added after it cycled.

thought it was appropriate that one of the related videos is " Saltwater Aquarium Fish Selection Advice "

I hate to criticize someone else's tank, especially since I'm new to the hobby. But after seeing that video I urge you to listen to the advice being given (however harsh). The more senior members here are right. Those fish simply don't belong in that tank.

I would have loved to drop 2 or 3 trigger fish, a porcupine puffer, a lionfish, and the blue/hippo tank in my 34 gallon tank, but I know that will never happen. I have to wait and awhile, learn from my nano-reef, and build me a 135 gallon or bigger tank for all that! I love TRIGGERS, just not going to torture one.

When all those fish die let us know. How bout you take responsiblity for your actions and find those fish suitable homes. I'll admit my first couple years of reeding I made some BAD mistakes, but I took the advice of people on here and now I have a couple sweet reefs with suitable livestock. You clearly haven't researched and you looking like a ####ing moron. The first time you think you know everything in this hobby your doomed. Take peoples advice and wise up. Please. Thank you.

Not trying to be mean, but if you want to waste money feel free to send it my way. I'll put it into a successful nano reef tank and I'll send you pictures.

 

The puffer looks sad. Adding biospira, not a good idea. It's best to let things cycle naturally.

Animal cruelty issues asside, the one thing I can't believe is that the OP thinks that this sardine can full of fish looks good.

I like your aquascape (rock work). Your zoas are nicely placed too. Your anemone looks nice, but keep a close eye on it. I agree with everyone else...remove the bat fish, the tang, the seahorse. As much as you might like them in there, it's not a suitable place for them. It's hard to admit mistakes, but do it for the sake of the animals. We obviously can't really know what they are thinking, but by knowing their habitats and habits...we can assume they are very very sad :(

Here's your thread from the 12th of March. You edited this morning apparently taking out you noob questions. They are still in Scott Reimers post, so we can still see what you wrote. At that time there was no mention of any fish being in the tank and it sounds like the tank was just beginning its cycle. So all of these fish have been put into the tank within the last 18 days? Prepare yourself for a tank crash, a newly set up system just cant handle the amount of bioload you forced onto it, bio-spira or not.

... you have to realize that people on this board are not jerks, we simply care about the animals that we love. When we see someone abusing the animals, we call them out. It's that simple, really.
