Hi, and thank you for your very informative answers. It really does make sense that it was a copepod outbreak, now that I look back on it.
Everything happened the way you described, which brings me to my last question.
I have already ordered a pair of OR seahorses and I am very excited about their arrival. I have been cycling this tank for five weeks and have had two little clown fish in there for about three weeks. The conditions are all favorable.
My question is this….. I have live sand ( about 1.5 ") in the tank but had decided to not put in live rock. I have some coral and lots artifical hitching for them, but now am worried I won’t have the best filtration……… keeping in mind that they will arrive this week, should I change anything? ( I did have an NH3 spike about a week after adding the Nemo’s, but just a small one)
Thank you again….. and hopefully done pestering you (for awhile, Anyway:)
