Everything molts at different rates. My shrimps molt about twice a month. My porcelain crab maybe once a month. Don’t worry about molting. They grow and need new clothes.
They are on their way bought some at the live sale!!! Will post that soon.Do you currently have any corals? I wouldn’t worry or stress too much over your calcium and magnesium if so. Regular water changes will keep it in check. You may have but I didn’t see any in the pics. The fish could care less.
Make my own RODI! Yep change socks every 3 days.!!! Welcome to R2R Maritza !!! Beautiful setup and great equipment. I would just keep doing 10% WC every week until the tank matures. Chasing numbers at this time will get you more headache than enjoyment. I would keep eyes on feeding amount, filter socks cleaning every 2 or 3 days. I don't use filter socks anymore, now I use filter cup with Poli-fill from Walmart and change every 3 days....great results. IF you have the tank setup for only 4 month, you still be at the beginning stages of maturity so you will see some algae here and there. Do you make your own water (RODI ) or got it from an LFS? Test your water for the TDS. Light schedule and TDS can contribute to grow algae.
Forgot to mention I have Zoa And star polypDo you currently have any corals? I wouldn’t worry or stress too much over your calcium and magnesium if so. Regular water changes will keep it in check. You may have but I didn’t see any in the pics. The fish could care less
It’s a mixture of hair algae Coraline algae diatoms. cleaned it yesterday it was like a film Peeled offdo you have some diatoms going on with the sandbed? i had that when i set my tank up.. tried a few different things and it just stuck around (i did read eventually it'll go away on its own) but i got a conch and it was gone in a couple of days. plus conchs are really cool and derpy looking
Looks good. Just watch the alk swings. Most softie and LPS corals can tolerate swings but if you’re going to keep SPS, they’re less forgiving.Test Results: thoughts?
Nitrate: between 0-2
Alk: 6.4 was 7.2
