Thread: im at a loss for words

  1. #1

    Default im at a loss for words

    My coral bleached, my fish either died or disappeared, my crabs are dead...

    This all happened in the past month and everything is gone.

    Things are doing better now, but wtf...

    All i have left are a couple softies and some snails. Oh, i also hace 1000s of bristle worms.

    Knowing your tank numbers helps to understand . I monitor pH 24/7 . I know if it's more acidic or not . Maybe there wAs a drop or a spike somewhere. It helps to know

    Sorry for the current status of the tank. Water changes will fix 90% of all things wrong with a tank.

    Get something to monitor your pH. American marine makes one and has a power supply for it. Not watching your numbers is futile

    TDS and salinity should be check before sw change. Probably temp too depending on what percentage sw change .
