  1. Help ....pls. Urgent

    I did took the sponge out...but I guess its too late....I had prepared the water....it has to be over night to do so....as I used the water which was due to change by tomorrow (weekly water change). I guess this is the only option...to do water change ... Hope the corals make it till tomorrow. Am just confused what caused this... As I had small fan orange coral in the tank but never faced such thing... The sad thing I lost the clown fish ... I was so attached to it.
  2. Guys, Yesterday I purchased a blue sponge, I did acclimated for 2 hrs and didn't took it out the bag as I know it should not exposed to air, placed it in my tank and today morning the tank was smokey white and the sponge color changed to white , thought its protecting cover or else .. However I changed my water, 15% and cleaned my filter, and the whole tank was going down....leather coral titled down, the hairy mushroom shrink...the elegance is closed the Kenya tree tilted down..... And about two hrs I lost the 2 clown fish and 1 shrimp..... What to do.... Heeeeeeeelp pls.

  4. Help..

    Thank you all for the reply, my tank is 15G and I think am dealing with the wrong LFS staff,I know their aim is totally the profitable. Drop down in PH is strange for me as well, I have the test kit for magnisume , calcium, ph,no3,no4. Supplier staff adviseme me to dose the iodine as the coral I have is not totally thriving in the tank. Am maintaing weekly water change, and daily twice auto feeder fish flake for the clown which the like it. External and internal filtters, chiller, skimmer. Liverock, live sand bed. 2 cleaning shrimps, 4 turbo snails. The sport is quite big for the fish almost the tail part is covered with it but in circle shape. Thank you guys for the valuable information. Parameters will send it once reach home.

  6. Help..

    Urgent help.. Yesterday I applied iodine 10ml to the aquarium along with ph+ 10 ml, after 6 hours or less, I noticed white circle on one of my clown fish near to the tail and in both sides, almost the same size. I never noticed small white dots ( as I check all pic on the net) which suppose to be white spots, didn't notice any strange behavior like scratching the body to rock or other things. So what is this white circle, could it be from the iodine.??! And if not white spot, then what is it? I don't have another fish, only clown and anemone.+ bubble coral, leather star polyp , blastomuss. Ph was dropping to 7.6 last 2 on Wednesday test, friday is the schedule for weekly 20% water change.

    By the way the NH3/NH4 is between 0 and .5m/l And ph is 8.5 Which it is safe as per the chart, by tomorrow will change the 20% of the tank water as it scheduled each 7 days. The test I did yesterday for nh and ph.
