Hi guys.

Tank is just over five months old.

Parameters are
Salinity 0.026
Kh 10.4
Ca 475
Mg 1460

Bubble has been doing great the last two months.

Was away for a week. Had the tank fed twice.
Got back things looked good. It's now a week later.

Delayed the water change by a week so only done after 14 days.
Last two days the bubble has taken quite a hit.

Any idea's ?



Then. I had a problem with white spot outbreak. Seems to be clearing nicely.
But now on of my Bartlett Anthias for the last two days has started hiding under a rock. It looks very healthy but I don't see it eating now for two days and has me concerned.

Any idea's ?

Any idea on Nitrate level? Although that shouldn't affect the fish too much, do you have other corals and fish in the system?

I don't'. I'll do another water change again this afternoon so will be the second this week to try and help.

fish looks so healthy .... Just hugging the rock all the time.

Coral ...... And to be honest I did miss a weekly change before I went away but did change before I went away and then 10 days later.

What size wate changes are you doing and what else are you dosing? Unless the problem is found, doing frequent waterchanges could be doing more harm than good.
