    Hi Masa
    I bought 2 occellaris clownfish and 2 blue green chromis on sunday and a hermit .
    I did a 20% water change a week before i bought the livestock.
    My chromis are eating well ,the clownfish are only eating pellets and brine shrimp freeze dried cubes.

    Yesterday afternoon i noticed a bump on the side of my clowns head . Looks black under the skin .

    I dont have any corals as yet .

    My parameters are -
    Temp: 27.5
    Salinity : 1.026
    Ph :8.2
    Ammonia : 0
    Nitrite : 0
    Nitrate : 2
