Hi guys :D
Today is my first day at the fish forum, I have a lot of questions but first let me describe my tank.
Almost 2 months old
75 gallon, saltwater reef tank, sump tank, live rock, 48" Coralife lunar power compact system w/moonlights, Heater, 2 powerheads, Protein skimmer.
anemones, star polyps that will not open, 1 six line wrasse, 5 blue-green chromis, 1 true percula clown, 2 spotted cardinalfish, 1 firefish that I haven't seen in 2 and a half weeks, 1 blue striped goby that i haven't seen in 1 week, 1 spotted tang that i haven't seen in 4 days.
OK, the problem or the situation I am facing is that some of the fish I am getting are hiding in the rock and i don't see them eating, I donut know if they are dead or not. The star polyp I got like 2 weeks ago is not opening, it only opens 2 or 3 stars once in a while.
So if you guys have any suggestions for me or any other questions for me to ask myself, i really want to learn, have a great tank, and reduce my fish loss.
How long has the tank been setup? Also did you let it cycle? And, what are the water parameters?
By water parameters,yo mean water conditions salt, ph, etc...
so, if it is that my water condition appears to be great, i did some tests myself and it was great and I also took it to the store i usually go to and it was fine.
I really dont know why some of my stock is not doing good.
Re: time established
Ammonia, pH, nitrites, nitrates, salinity and calcium.
I did some more research yesterday and i figured it out. My water temperature is over 82 degrees and I need a chiller. I m going to try to find it used or just going to have to buy a new one because i dont want to loose more fish.
The lights during the day are putting too much heat ( power compacts)
no ventilation in the room and the a/c off. so i'm going to leave the a/c on the whole day while I find a chiller for the tank
if any of you guys have any suggestionsof what else I can do let me know.
