my 20 gallon set-up
Recently set-up a 20 gallon fowlr. Have slowly expanded to a few corals since fish are kinda not much of an option since I have aYellow Tail Blue Damsel. In the tank are 4 hermit crabs, 3 nassarius snails, 1 margarita snail, a coral banded shrimp, star polyp, hammer coral and a mushroom. Oh, and the Damsel. So far, eveything has done good. Only thing i've experienced is the loss of a hermit crab (not sure if he molted ot died as only found the exoskeleton and not the shell he was in. He also changed shells about 10 days ago). The shrimp has already molted after 2 weeks in the tank.
here's my current water test results:
Amonia- less than .25 (I'd call it 0 but it may have a slight spike due to probably overfeeding last night trying to target feed my corals a bit of flake)
Nitrate- < than 5 but looks closer to 0
Phosphate- < .25 but looks closer to 0
Will be picking up a calcium test kit tomorrow.
