    Detritus on sandbed

    Hi guys, I keep getting this build up on detritus looking stuff building up on my sandbed. Its building up in the low flow areas of the tank (I will add more flow) but Im curious as to what it is. Ive only got 2 clowns, a hermit and a turbo snail. Is it just poo or something else? Tia
  2. Hello guys I got a question hoping some of you can answer me. My 70g tank is running stable. Phosphates are around 0.02, Nitrates around 5. I dont have any problems with Cyanos or other pest that bothers my tank. Corals look good. Whenever I clean my sandbed (I have a very shallow fine sandbed around 1,5 inches deep) I notice quite a lot of detritus. I dont see it building up on top, its inside the sand, so whenever I disturb the sandbed I see a thick brown cloud rising up. After a few hours my tank is crystal clear again. Is this good or bad? Should the sandbed be completly clean, meaning if I disturb it I see nothing rising up? I clean my sandbed every week when doing a waterchange of 5g. How do you clean your sandbeds and how much time do you spend doing it?
  3. hello, my water quality is not as clear as it once was. There seems to be so many fine little particles floating around everywhere, I even believe some of those are microbubbles. Im running an IM10 g for about a month now, tank cycle properly, all level were 0. I finally added my first clown and some hardy corals, everything is thriving and loving it. For about a week now, I've been having this problem where small particles or micro bubbles are floating around everywhere in my water. I've been using sachem clarity once a week, it doesn't seem to be doing much.. Aside from weekly water changes and blowing my rocks, what else can I do or add in my tank to make these stupid particles/bubbles go away? the tank is so beautiful and these little things are ruining the beauty of it. Any tips would be great thanks (before you say it, I know the tank is young, I've been in the hobby for 5 years, I know what to expect and I know patience is key. but something with these particles is just telling me something is off)
