Hi Everyone! I am pretty new to the hobby and have some questions. I started my tank about 5 weeks ago. I put a clown in a couple weeks ago and he died within 24 hours.. not sure exactly why but he was breathing really fast.. one lps told me it was sick when I got it. So, I waited a week and put in two Chromis... I've had them in for a couple days and I notice one died this morning... I have bioballs and am working to remove those. I also use floss filter, a phosphate reducing floss, and chem pure elite. My senility is good. I am now doing 5 gallon water changes every week also. I have sand and live rock in the tank with a power head also. I have a small clean up crew in there. I test my water every 3-5 days. Ammonia - 0, PH - good, nitrate - 20, nitrite - 0. I realize my nitrate is kind of high but I was told the Chromis could handle it. I'm hesitant to add anything else at this point..can anyone point me in the right direction for what I should be looking for??? Am I missing something? Side question - if I take out all bioballs could I just run a steves media basket and a skimmer and be better off?? What kind of skimmer should I get?
