Should i have more movement on top of my water?I have the Rena xp2 and a 12" air pump.No much movement on the right side of the tank.Maybe that could create more oxygen?
Could it be my lights??I have a Coralife T5 HO.I run a Colormax and a 6,700K bulb in it.
It is not really an oxygen issue, though more oxygen in the water won't hurt as this makes it easier for the fish to respire when their gills are being inflamed by ammonia or similar. Gasping at the surface would be worse, so I wouldn't worry about this. It will take some time for the gills to settle, and frankly I'm not sure how or if this happens.
I'm not seeing the connection with the light... ?
TGhe colour in the photos varies, but in a coujple of them where the colours on the card are darker the test tube results seem good.
