Re:Worried new mama


Dear Leslie,
Sorry to cause you concern over the specific gravity – I thought specific gravity was the 31 and salinity would be 1.024. I guess I had them backwards. I took the reading before I topped off the tank which I have to do each day. Once I top off the tank I get a reading of 1.023. I may get a little more fluctutation now that I am agitating the surface more so I will watch this closely.

I am so excited this morning they were both very perky and gobbling up everything. The male was moving around a lot and even went chasing after some of the shrimp. I used the smaller shrimp again.

I am thinking it must be the oxygen as that is the only major change. I readjusted the return jets to really ruffle the surfice and had the air stone in at the top of the tank for about 3 hours. I did not want to leave it in too long as I have read it can create a spike in ammonia.

I really appreciate all your help.
