I did use liquid test kits. They're by API
How do i get it established/cycled??? it's been going for almost a year now!
I don't know what type of an anemone it was. Pink tip possibly? I spoke to someone about it hosting the clown but he said that the nem was pacific and the clown was atlantic (or vice versa) and he won't host bc it's not a natural environment for them.
The nem was living pretty much on my bubble stick, but when I cleaned the tank last I dislodged him and he never puffed big again. will that kill them??? I never touched him, he just got moved by my arm swaying the water.
Everyone in the tank is happy and coexisting way better than I thought they would. I started the tank with the clown and damsel. the damsel is about 1- 1.5", clown about 3", tomato about 2", tang 4-4.5" and the tusk is about 6". He's big but he's a baby.
I introduced the tang second, and about 4 months later someone was giving away the tomato and tusk. I rearranged my rock and disrupted the territories so no one would defend their spots. Since then everyone has their own hiding places and no one bullies or gets bullied.
(Btw, is he a tuskfish? I googled him but I only found info on a rainbow one, but mine is grey/white not rainbow)
I've been having problems with my salinity for about 5 months. I've been doing frequent water changes and adding maybe a generous pinch of salt to the 5gal bucket because it's been off the charts and I can't seem to get it to drop. I've been using a hydrometer and taking several readings each time. Right now it's reading 1.023 on my red sea hydrometer and 1.022 on my instant ocean one. Last week it was about 1.026.
I did a water change last week and removed 5 gallons from my 55 gallon tank. are you able to see all my info in my fish profile thing?
