    55+ Gallon Acrylic Tank in Oakland Chinatown

    I was just thinking I needed a strainer cap for the durso. It hadn't occurred to me before. I'll be sure to do so. I'm using a LED light off of Amazon. It ramps up 6-8am and then ramps down 10pm-Midnight. It runs at 100% blue and 25% white.

    Brita I only use a cup or two at a time a few times a week to tip off the sump when the water is below the line. I use salt water from Kenny at HTA for weekly water changes. Mix my own with RO when I run out and can't get to HTA until the weekend.

    I recently got master reef and saltwater kits. I have used them a couple times but on a weekly basis have used the meter and strips. Any others you'd recommend?

    Thank you for this thoughtful and thorough reply. I'm going to follow your recc for acclimating, feeling, salinity and the like. I will get reading using my reef master test kit soon. I took this video of my fully tank. I show my set up including the heater in the overflow, sump and protein...

    Hi Everyone, Since losing my storm clown in January, I paused on adding any new fish to my tank for a while. I wanted to make sure none of the fish were in my tank were sick and I wanted to focus on proper maintenance. I have done regular water changes (mostly salt water from HTA, but 1/month...

    I think I misunderstood your question. Pipe is 24 inches, but from the top of overflow to water line is about 3-4 inches.

    Thanks everyone for your help. Unfortunately the storm clown, who I named Megan Thee Stallion, passed away this morning. I read online that you can preserve your fish in resin, so I might try that to honor her. Since I was a kid, I've always been sentimental about losing a pet or seeing an...

    She's on the struggle bus, but still alive somehow. I moved her to a small 10 gal tank I have with water from my main tank. My cleaner shrimp was being aggressive as she laid on the ground and I think she was getting more stressed. Her name btw is Megan as in Megan Thee Stallion. Will share...

    The full height of the pipe is about 24 inches. Not sure how much water there is between the bottom and the top, but I can hear it trickle, not annoyingly so.

    Yes I forgot to mention that there's a skimmer. I use a filter sock and there is a durso style plumbing, which I thought may also help with oxygenation.

    Now she got up and is doing backflips again but if anyone has any recommendations on how to triage, please let me know.

    Bad news. Just since posting this a few minutes ago I've noticed her now hanging out the bottom of the tank. Not sure if there's anything I can do now.

    Hi Everyone - Thank you all for your recommendations and insights. QUICK UPDATE - Today, my clown has moved to different areas of the tank, but now she is swimming up and then turning on her back, as if she's doing a back flip. It is hard to capture with just a photo, so here's also a link...
