    ay im just doing my research. Dont read the thread if your just gonna come say that. Sometimes local store peoples dont know stuff either. I brought up some questions and asked them about it and they couldnt even answer me. I mean, Im not trying to say its bad. Its just sometimes people there dont know all the stuff about saltwater fishes either.

    also does your clown have white spots on it that means it has ick and you need to set up a quarantine tank and does it with medice. i am not the best person for it because luckily the only time i had to deal with it it was on my clown and he got better on his own, but i would also look into clown diseases and im sure a lot of people still know more than me. i still consider myself a newbie and ive had a reef tank for over two years

    The buffer you are talking about is only useful if you have a test kit. You need to know where your levels are before using any sort of supplement. It sounds like an alkalinity supplement, but I'm not sure.

    To get to the point, in order to help your clownfish, we NEED to know your levels, at least nitrate, nitrite, ammonia and ph. Also, what size tank do you have? What type of filtration? How much live rock? Sump? Refugium? Anything else? Do you dose anything?

    There's only so much we can do without more info.
