    Please also give us your water parameters total breakdown, how long have you been running your tank? What’s the dimensions of the tank, and what light do you have?

    Sorry for all the questions but that’s what the experts on this forum need to assist.

    Give him another few days your parameters look good, and you have an established tank so that should be fine.

    Just give it some time, don't do anything drastic yet.
