    Hi
    I recently moved to house, and i need some of your expertise on my Setup. My LS is currently in my Quarintine Tank for the past week,

    I transported half of my water with the move, and chucked the rest

    My livestock has been in my hospital tank for the past week with the existing water, and isn't doing good. My brain coral has not opened, my clam has been in a Gaping stance for the past 2 days, and my mushrooms have not opened, I've found 3 dead snail in the water which i have removed and did about a 30 percent water change over the weekend.

    Over the weekend I found that My heater has been unplugged !, and found the water cold. I'm guessing this was over a period of one day, My six line wrasse did not make it.

    The main tank has been running in over the past 2 days now only, with new water The existing water kept smelt funky so I dumped it.

    Me not having transport and help delayed my tanks move.


    I would deeply appreciate if one of the experienced guys could pop by soon, to assist.

    I'm in Kuilsriver.

    TEST, TEST, TEST! What are your water parameters? Temp. might be the issue, as well as new water, are you using RO water? Give us more details.
    I feel for you, I hope you get it sorted out.:(

    What is your water flow like, also seems that you only have half the volume of the old system. So yes, if you do not skim the surface you will not have good gas exchange. Point one of the powerheads upwards so that it churn the surface.
    Get the temperature up.
    Do a water change - obviously water parameters are out.

    I will be doing a 50 % water change this evening and dose with stabilty. Hopefully this helps !

    Thanks for the replies thus far.

    @ Riaan, I have a Flow pump sklmming the surface water, and a smal skimmer has been connected. I will be testing all other parameters as well.
