ADMINS NANO TANK CHRONICLE

Post by Shannon *Admin* on Wed Nov 26, 2008 5:27 pm

Well on Nov 22/08 I purchased a 12g Nanocube Dx..
I filled it with 100% water from my display tank, as well as Liverock and sand from there..I cheated the cycle process..lol..
It is now home to my Banggai babies, mated pair clowns and their bubble tip anemone..as well as some zoos, yellow polyps, xmas tree worms, hairy mushrooms..
I will post some pics and water params in a few min..

Nice nano, what do you have for lighting in there? How much light do I need for an anemone in a 16 gallon tank?

Standard household light bulb will do the trick for now until you can come up with a better option but I suspect improving chaeto growth alone will not address your nitrate issue.
Accellerate water change schedule to 2X per week (2-3 gal/change) to start.
Reduce feeding to minimal
What is the depth of your sandbed? Do you vacuum weekly?
Battling some issues myself on my BC29 at present. As one of my fixes I am slowly reducing sand bed depth to something less than 1 inch and increasing sandbed vacuuming. Also keeping an eye out for a skimmer upgrade.

Is your BTA still looking as good as it did in your Nov 27 post? If it does I would be suspecting the test kits accuracy. If you want you can drop over a water sample and I'll test with my Salifert kit
