No it’s been like this for about a week now. I did have a cleaner shrimp in the tank that kept jumping on top of it and stealing food. That really irritated it. But the shrimp is gone now. Does it look like it’s dying?
no, that isn’t too much filtration. I’ve never heard of that LOL. What are you testing phosphates with? The reason I ask is because the ideal phosphate for a mixed reef tank is 0.10-0.20 and a test kit reading 0 could mean the phosphates are really 0.9 which is way too high and would definitely make your hammer coral mad.Parameters are good. Nitrates are about 3.
I don’t test anything else because I only have soft corals and only that one hammer and I do weekly water changes. I only have 2 clownfish. 1 is a little baby. My tank is a 20 gallon long. I am running a lot of filtration. I’m running polyester battling filter floss in a hang on back filter. With poly filter and purigen. Also running seachem matrix for biological filtration and also running a hang on back refugium with chaeto. And a protein skimmer. Is that too much?
