Hello everyone, finally decided to post and join the community.I always wanted a saltwater tank but hesitant because of the cost and complication. Finally decided to give it a try, I didn't want to spend too much money on my first tank as i am learning. so I end up buying a used Nano Aquatop Eco 24 gallon AIO tank on craigslist.

Tank Started on June 18, 2020
-Dry Rock
-Dry Sand
-Tank cycled in 90 days with a raw shrimp tail

Equipment:
- Aquatop Eco 24 AIO with Stand
- Biocube skimmer
- Stock Return Pump
- 50W Heater
- Zetlight Aqua Series Led
- Jebao OW 10
- Floss and Sponge
- Chaeto (Chamber 1)
- Chemi pure elite (Chamber 2)
- Bio rings (Chamber 3)

Tank Parameters:
Temperature - 78 degrees
pH – 8.2
Specific Gravity – 1.026
Alkalinity – 8dKH
Ammonia – 0
Nitrite – 0
Nitrate – 20ppm
Calcium – 380ppm
Magnesium – 1150ppm

Corals:
- Kenya tree
- Plusing Xenia
- Green Mushroom frag
- Green Star Polyp
- Green Mushrom Frag
- Green Mushroom Rock
- Mini Maxi Anemones
- Flower Rock Anemoneq

Fish:
- Four strip damsel
- Sergant major damsel
- 2x Blue spot damsel
- Rock Goby
- azure damsel

Within the last two months I lost 3 fish.
All of them don't have sign of ich, body damage or gill damage. It really bothers me not knowing how the tank inhabitants are dying.
Everytime a fish died I check the tank parameters right away and don't seem to have any problems.
If anyone can charm in that would be great.
Thank You all for reading.

Hello! Welcome to the awesome forum of Reef2Reef, a place where you can get lost for hours of information from people just like yourself in the hobby and possibly be able to seek out answers for yourself and your own tank!

If you have a chance and are interested in maybe watching another YouTube reefer, I got my channel going and have a little over 10 videos and I am really enjoying it! Good for anyone from brand new reefer to the experienced hobbyist! Hope you get a chance to check it out and give me some feedback!

Welcome again to Reef2Reef!
