Hi Everyone!
I was debating whether to start up a build thread - although my aquarium has already been set up and running for 6 months - so i decided to start one!
Tank : 15 gallon
Equipment : standard stock skimmer (Fluval ps1 i think)
standard return pump
standard wavemaker
also standard heater - how many times have i already said standard? ;)
standard light - probably going to upgrade eventually

Did i mention i have a pretty bad problem with dino's:eek:
going to try to treat next week : with fauna marine dino x and dr tims waste away ( i will be doing both in conjunction with no water changes for 2 weeks and a week blackout period.
I am also going to setup a mini fuge to help with nutrients.
I also have a clownfish pair and a firefish.
I would like an emerald crab and cleaner shrimp but dont know if it is possible.

I would try to raise your nitrates and phosphates to help algae out compete the dinos.

Ih no. Huge water change, addition of liquid bacteria and some carbon such as chemipure

An update:
I am now dosing dino x every 2 days like it says and is it worth dosing dr tims waste away on alternating days ?
Also is a fuge a good idea?Should i add pods?

I think i am going to try cyano treatment now because the red in the sand has no bubbles underneath and does not disperse at night like dino had.Not sure if i had dino's and cyano?
I'm now super confused...;Hilarious
