No problem, thanks for understanding why I did the edit. :)

Zaitmi: While S/W fishes are rare in India and I can understand you wanting to "jump" on the next purchase, what's the point if the *new* fish isn't going to do well in your tank? Another fish will come along, they always do...

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Can anyone suggest me a bottle of branded Phosphate Remover Kit.
or
a Brown Algae Remover product .

Can a UV sterilizer will solve algae problem.

What if i go straight and buy a UV sterilizer and not use these kits.

Awaiting for replies.

More Photos will be uploaded soon.

I have never read either, but give it a shot. I tend to read articles by Randy Holmes-Farley, along with other online articles.

I have made a personal decision to longer participate in this thread. I am not enjoying the discussion, and am becoming frustrated by the progression of the conversation. It really does not appear that the experience of our team is being utilized.

you did this to yourself zatimi. pasfur and the others spent A LOT of time trying to help you. we would hate to see you quit this hobby. Marine aquariums are not cheap by any means and cutting corners isnt an option here. This is why i have yet to attempt marine, plus i am new to even the freshwater hobby. IMPO you need to not quit, but put it on hold, gather some books, do your research and re-read this thread as many times as needed to see what mistakes you have made and NOT make them again. Also in re-reading, take the advice given to you and use it. if you do all these things you may end being successful at keeping a marine aquarium. But if you dont it will fail again and again and it will be more money wasted.

How can you afford a UV sterilizer and not an alkalinity test?

I'm not surprised that pasfur has bailed and I'm not sure why you are either.

You don't need books, you have the internet.

Don't quit, just postpone things for a bit. You need to leave the tank for a few months for the ich to settle down anyway.

Have you got enough rock (over 1lb a gallon) in your tank? If not this is a good time to add some ocean rock as base and let it seed for the next few months.

Okay guys thanks. i will stay.

There is no smell in the tank from the last week since i have come back. I think the die offs of rock are gone. Now water is fine with some ocean smell. Last day i scrubbed manually Brown algae from the rocks and stirred the sand a bit. They are beautiful rocks with some deep red algae growing in them as well as purple and green. Water replaced 10%. I do water replacement fortnightly. i.e. twice a month.

Damsel is growing bigger and eating more, doing fine.

Everything is going positive in the tank the rocks the smell the fish. I just need to wait. A bit.
