This is the part that gets me so mad .... Many LFS don't care what you buy for your fish tank, so long as they're taking your money . They should have discouraged you from buying all that livestock for such a young tank. ( I know, they did it to me too !)bandito974 said:well I added 2 anenomies, 2 hermits and 2 snails! On Sunday I added a clown fish,
I plan on just putting in 2 clown fish or damsels, and at some point would hope for some mushrooms.pistorta said:Depending on what you will eventually buy, the algae is a good thing. It serves as a food source for many marine animals. I never remove algae from my tank with the exception of the glass side I look through. Green algae may not be aesthetically pleasing to look at, but is not doing any harm to the tank. I would suggest you leave it...but perhaps limiting the amount of light will reduce its growth.
PK, I learned a lot in this forum, what trouble are you having? a 33 gallon is a nice size, do you have the proper equipment? Heater, Light, Skimmer? strong power head?pkmiller said:Hi everyone! Like Bandito, I am becoming overwhelmed (and running out of money). I am in the process of setting up my 33 gallon tank for saltwater but after much reading I doubt it will succeed. I have 28 lbs of live rock and live sand. No fish yet. Can I just take the water out and refill and go back to freshwater? Can I keep the rock and sand since it cost me $300?
