After 6 months, I am still efforting tirelessly to get my tank to become a thriving livable habitat. I've gone through 6-8 fish so far. 3 different attempts to get it going.
Now I have an arrow crab that has survived 2 of those attempts and is doing fine. I have come to the conclusion that I don't think I have enough water flow.
I have a 75 gal tank with a sump. My sump set up has a protein skimmer which appears to be doing the job.
My water tests ok or so I've been told.
However, here's the obit...
1 lived to see the next generation...which was 2 firefish another chromie and the arrow crab.
Homie the chromie ate the new chromie and the firefish were never to be seen again...eventually homie died as well.
I did a 30% water change. then added 1 bi colored angel, 2 clowns and 3 sea catfish (which were cool and looked like mimi sharks)..
Now 3 weeks later...all are dead and the arrow crab lives on. I have a red slime issue.
Any suggestions on red slime cure and am i missing anything else besides water flow that might be hindering my performance??
