Sorry for the long winded post!
Current Stock List:
2 False Perc Clowns - 1 black and 1 misbar
1 diamond goby
5 scarlet hermits
1 blue legged hermit
1 emerald crab
1 turbo snail
Test Results for Saturday and Sunday:
PH - 8.3
Temp - 77.6
Calcium - 460
Hardness - 10
Amonia - 0
Nitrite - 0
Phosphate - <5
Nitrate - <5
I alternate between Formula 1, Formula 2 frozen foods and Marine S pellets. I will start giving mysis and some other foods as a treat.
I have started dosing both calcium and kent super dkh.
All fish are doing fine. Introduced the diamond goby from QT.
How long should I wait before buying the next fish and a few more CUC members? The fish would be QTd for 2 weeks before addition.
Some things I have noticed:
My protein skimmer has slowed down a bit. Still producing some yellowish/brownish film but nowhere near the same rate.
Diatom bloom has been completely gone for several days.
One of the original pieces of live rock is almost entirely encrusted with coralline algae.
Second of the original pieces of live rock is starting to have some nice coralline algae cover.
Base rock slowly starting to show some small spots of coralline algae.
Bright green algae is appearing on some small spots on my glass and on my base rocks.
My clowns destroy any food I give them. Should I be worrying about my CUC and goby getting enough? Should I start target feeding my emerald crab and diamond goby? Emerald is grazing like crazy but I want to be sure everybody has enough of everything.
