Student: "Miss, can i go to the bathroom?"

Me: "I don't know, CAN you?"

Student" "yea..."

Student: "wait, what?"

Ugh, you're one of those grammar nazi teachers. I still say it properly thanks to Mr. Farley (aka Buttear). Speaking of which; what is the nickname your class gives you at school? Every teacher has one wether they know it or not. If you know it, it probably isn't so bad, if not...

All caught up on this thread! I used to be part of the little step ladder, water to the armpits club. It's one of the main, if not the entire reason I went with 36X18X18. Those dimensions sold me in a heartbeat. Also too the cabinet on my RSM was several inches taller than my CAD adding to the problem. Now I just shut off the pumps and try not to breathe and cause ripples as I stand near the tank looking top down. :wub:

Xenia. Scraping with the blade is best. The scraped pieces can take several days to re attach. So bets bet would be the sump compartment where you have the other corals, in a little bowl with rubble to let them attach.

Hmm. Do you think you're getting any sort of ammonia/small cycle? With the new sand, it could be that the biofilter isn't established yet.

And if you have some, I'd dump either some Fritz zyme in there or some Dr. tim's one and only. And test ammonia & nitrites. I put an ammonia badge in my new tank just in case.

Can you get some stop ammo to help everything adjust? Seems high and might definitely cause problems.

I added sand to the nuvo and removed a rock and couple frags... no signs of a cycle in my tank. Rock should have a lot of the biofilter, right?

It should but the tank is much bigger than the previous tank and not all the biofilter may have transferred. Disturbing a sand bed sometimes has adverse effects and may cause an ammonia spike if not careful.

Yeah, something to help stop the ammonia from being toxic. Or maybe just add in some nitrifying bacteria - or both actually. I dosed my tank last night with Dr. Tim's one and only and added some old sponges and stuff from the two tanks to get the biofilter going. But if you're seeing ammonia, i'm worried that it will have adverse affects on your livestock. I think there are other products as well to help with the ammonia, so I'm sure petco must have something.

Seachem Prime, Aquavitro alpha (if you have an LFS that stocks Seachem's aquavitro line) are your other options.

Hmm. Problem with not-so-nano is that a 5g water change wont have a significant effect

Water changes don't really help with ammonia. You'd need to almost change out ALL the water to have an impact as you don't want any ammonia present. So even if you did half, you're still only lowering the ammonia by half. Then the fish and beings and such will add more so it would be in my mind, a losing battle. Better off going with some nitrifying bacteria or something like the prime etc.
