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?
CinnamonTorch posted a topic in Water Chemistryhello, 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)
