Help, like so many others I am just diving into this wonderful are form. However I checked my water levels and they are way off. Also I'm not sure if I am over crowded or not.
Nitrate - 5.0
I followed these readings by a 25% water change. Have not checked it since.
My question is...
1. How do I get my water balanced?
2. Am I over crowded?
Animals are as followed:
3 - Blue /Green Reef Chromis's
1 - Starcki Damsel
10 - Hermit Crabs
4 - Cerith Snails
3 - Nerite Snails
5 - Super Tongan Nassarius Snails
5 - Banded Trochus Snails
If anyone can help me or have suggestions please let me know.
