sounds like more of the cause than temperature. you had an ammonia spike.
Well thats the last time i order a CUC online..I hope I found all of the dead snails.
do you have any prime? You can use that to assist in getting the ammonia down. Any ammonia in the tank is a possible killer of your fish. I would try to get more water and do another change, 15% is not a lot.......
So last night I did two 15% water changes and today I did 30% in one go instead of two separate ones. I do have prime, Ill use it. I didn't know if it worked in marine tanks. Do you recommend another 30% water change?
well, you've done 60% total in two days - that's a good size. is your ammonia still reading 1 after the 30% today?
Currently, it is unreadable (0). But, for some reason, I don't trust that. Is it possible for the bacteria to have taken over once the Ammonia was at a low enough level?
possibly. How do your livestock look?
The two clownfish are eating everything put in the tank (small amounts of food) and everything else is acting as normal. I removed about 60 snails/snail shells yesterday, hopefully that got rid of the source. My kenya tree and mushroom coral are opened up and looking as good as they've ever been too. I think that's definitely a good sign. My poor fire fish, I wish I knew it was Ammonia when I saw him struggling I would of put him in a bucket with fresh saltwater.
sounds like your tank has made it through!
What a stressful few days. Thanks for all of your help and guidance everyone!
