I hope not but I will film it tomorrow and maybe you could please give me your opinion? the pumps are a bit far and not even pointing towards it so I hope notBest of fortunes on the reef! The hammers will feel better soon enough. Also, maybe the extra wave maker was too much flow?
I am actually battling with an algae problem of all sorts. Unfortunately I only have ph, nitrite, nitrate and ammonia testers ugh. My last cleaning crew started to eat corals (emerald crabs) so I had to re-home them. I have not gotten anything else.I have a cleaner shrimp, my lazy goby el chapo and one snailyou may have a nutrient issue as well based on the amount of algae I see in your photos your lower readings may be deceiving as simple algaes are pretty efficient nutrient reducers when they get established in a system. Nitrate and phosphates at a high level will cause issues in corals that do not appreciate those high nutrient loads. Then again it very well could have been primarily a flow issue ticking it off.
Hello! Everyone looks happier wohooo but still a long way to go. Ive added pics and a video of the movement. I am not sure what type of snail as it hitchhiked on a coral lol ill find it and take a pic. Thanks guys!1 turbo snail or astrea snail? You could probably use a couple of astrea. I don't see the wave makers being an issue.
Hopefully hammer looks better today.
hammers look great. Definitly leave them be. If they look better with 1 pump than with the 2. I would just run the 1 to be honest.
Video isn't working. But do look into getting some astrea snails.
Edit: they do look much better today.
im too happy about it and relieved but still got work to do. Ill try to pick up some snails and hermit crabs today or tomorrow. Thanks for all your help again!
oof yeah I learned my lesson. Hopefully I can stop by the pet store today!Stay away from emeralds unless you can tell male from female. Females are a lot less likely to eat corals than the males. As male emerald crabs have a bigger claw.
The flow looks good on the hammers. Maybe a little high on the purple. But extension looks great.
