Hi allMade a couple of post recently in coral section but feel this is a bit more general as I don't really know what to do at this point.Tank is 13g, external cannister with various media, latest maxspect light spent a bit on it, pump.Posatives first I have what appears to be a very healthy clownfish and I've had him for a couple of months. Water seems to be fairly stable, ammonia is never more than 0.2 nitrite nigh on zero (get a minute bit on test every now and then) ph 8.2.I've had 2 lots of CUC from 2 different sources, first lot were poor and looked dead on arrival but I introduced anyway and 1 snail andn1 crab survived. Second lot nothing survived despite taking time acclimatising and introducing tank water bit by bit.Corals nothing has survived made a couple of mistakes but after advice here went for a gsp and pulsing xenia, the xenia went after 2 days the gsp is in one picture and done nothing, I've moved the flow closer to it hoping that would add something but nothing, its been over a week now.Tabk has a fair amount of algea, cleaned glass today but left it on gravel, will water change and wan tomorrow but wanted to post before.Where am I going wrong, should I be doing more water tests, am I missing something.Thanks
Green star polyp.I've ordered some test kits will copper, phosphate and calcium and go from there plus a new ammonia test all salifertThanks for your replies
Tested today what I can test for until new kits arise and I think this will be as some expected maybe:Amonia 0Nitrate "God knows" I've attached a picNitrite 0My understanding of the cycle was clearly wrong when testing and finding little or no ammonia and no nitrite I assumed nitrate as its the middle part of a cycle would be ok *facepalm*Other than water changes is there a better way to manage this.Will still do the other tests over next few days but we have a starting point at least
