24 Gallon Nano Cube- Sunpod?

Recommended Posts

Hi. I am new to this site but my tank has been up and running since April. Up until about a month ago my tank has been doing exceptionally well but recently it took a tur for the worse. My lighting went bad and I didnt realize until my torch coral and bubble coral started to bleach. I replaced the lights as soon as I could but the corals dont seem to be responding to it. Ive been doing a lot of research looking into the tanks of the month and see that most if not all run a sunpod. Im willing to shell out the extra money so my tank thrives but before I do I want to make sure that it is worth it. I know halides run hot so I dont want to have to spend an extra $300 on a chiller too. My tank is currently stocked with some mushrooms, several colonies of zoas, some LPS (Duncan, Torch, Bubble) and 2 anemones (1 actually split into two healthy pieces under my old lighting). Any help is appreciated. Thanks alot.

 

I will post up pics later when I get a chance.

 

Specs are:

temp 82

nitrate .2-.4

nitrite .4

Ammonia 0-.2

SG 1.020

You shouldn't be able to detect any ammonia or nitrite. Also, SG should be 1.025 for corals. My guess is that this is why you are having problems.

^^^^ What he said. I would suggest a few water changes, get your salinity up to at least 1.024-1.025 and things will look much better.

Bring the salinity up slowly though, bump it a little with water cahnge #1, then a little more with change #2.

Maybe 20% changes....

Might try to get the temp down a couple degees too...
