Advice:im sure everyone says the same thing here, so i will try to add things here that most dont.
if you get a bad case of flatworms the only thing that works is to buy 1 velvet nudibranch per 10 gallons. do not use any chemicals for the flatworms because the toxins it releases can kill your coral.
the best way to treat ich i have found was using NO SICK FISH ICH. 1 drop per 35 gallons, but make sure you turn off the skimmer, and most important the uv steralizer, and remove any carbon in the filter. if you have a mud system you must use kick ich. good luck and anyone can email me asking me anything
Description:Front Picture of My tank. I will get a better one but for now this is all i have
About Yourself:Started with freshwater and succeeded and needed another challenge. Started saltwater a few years ago was alittle impatient but was successful so kept on going. Just started again with new tank and can not wait for it to be done. Always remember be patient!!
Fish Kept:1 x Green Chromis
2 x True Percular Clowns
1 x Hippo Tang
1 x Banana Wrass
1 x strawberry dottyback
Corals/Plants:Gonopora, Cataphelia, frog spawn, brain coral and some polyps also a green tipped bubble anemone
About Yourself:always wanted a reef aquarium, so i started with a little 35L tank and have now upgraded to a 210L tank. It has been running for about 7-8months now and i will gradually build it up with more corals over the next year.
Advice:Regular waterchanges i do mine once a week (10gallons), read before you buy, plan ahead on what you want to keep in the tank and where the tank will go. Test your water regularly also to make sure that your levels in your tank are stable. The best test kits to buy are Salifert in my opinion. Like my quote says dont let small things get you down just keep at it and you will be happy with the end results.
