  2. Cyano and algae help!!

    i do a 5% water change weekly. but after treating my tank with Pimafix for fungus infection I had a 0.1% nitrite level in my tank. the red slime was a problem before this though. I feed once a day and only feed what the fish will eat I try to limit food waste. I get water from Canadian tire RO without added minerals. it is possible I have two large of a bioload my lfs said 1 fish a week. but all the other sources said never double a fish load in a month.

  7. am I Coral ready?

    I was told by my LFS to do a 5% water change weekly and the salt mix I use is the fluval sea pro formula. Should I do a larger amount? I have seen lots of people say to do a 20% WC. Is this a good salt or should I change to a different brand?

  10. am I Coral ready?

    what do I need for coral? so far all I have is a heater, ammonia alert, liquid stuff to read ph, two sky light clamp 18 LED lights and a refractometer. All the other stuff I get my LFS to test for me. Is there anything else I need to keep corals safely in my tank. Should I buy test kits for alkalinity and calcium?

  13. Hi I'm very new to reefing and I just started my new 20 gallon tank. I have finished the cycling prosses and have one Pj cardinal in the tank. When I started cycling the tank I added a single piece of live rock and I saw the aiptasia, but being new I thought it was fine. Intill more and more started popping up on other pieces of dry rock. There are two big ones and about 6 small ones how do I get rid of them. Plz Help.
