Eileen thx for the comment, Hope your enjoying San Diego better then Tracy, lol. I think you should get a saltwater tank, once they are up and running and as long as you do a little maintenance they are great and easy to keep.
OK to respond to Bearwithfish,
yes I run a skimmer in my sump, and i just started adding additives about 3 weeks ago (trace elements, minerals and calcium) I do this about 2 times a week. When I first started I had this tank going to about 5 months and did not add anything but coral fuel, so maybe that is one of the reasons why things went bad. I think my flow is somewhere around 3200GPH but not total sure cause I got the pump with the tank and have no idea what kind it is due to the fact all the stickers and writing is gone. Also my tank has only about 8 fish all about 1-3 inches and 1 6 in claim, and three corals, so it is low population right now. I hope this helps. Thanks for the help guys and girls.
