Pls help. Newbie with 75G Tank

Postby agutz1010 » Mon Apr 25, 2016 1:30 pm

Guys,

Need your good advice. I have a 75 G tank for 2 weeks now but lost all my fishes already. I actually placed my tank outdoor but with roof (used to be my koi pond). 1st day of setup they put rocks, test fishes, and corals. The corals made my aquarium stink within the first 2 days so I took everything out immediately.

I have no fishes at this time and my tank is 2 weeks old with lumot and stuff. It's still clear though. Hindi ko pa kinukuha yung Blue Tang fish ko sa pet shop as it might die easily.

My other concern is the salt water. Should i make one or buy salt water instead? I consume 2 bags of salt water a week. Probably because it is outdoor so evaporation is faster. I put ice blocks (like ice water na salt water) to cool the tank becuase the place gets a little hot in the from 12nn- 3pm. Sun is not direct though.

I live in BF homes Paranaque and based on my research there are a lot of nearby pet shops that sells salt water fishes here. Any recommendations? Got my setup from Cartimar.

Problem is my fish die in 3 days. Matibay na yung naka 5 days. Will greatly appreciate any advice.

Thanks and all the best! :)

Please do not buy any more livestock, until you have fully cycled your tank first.

Lots of info here about cycling.

*stinking of your aquarium might not be because of the corals(unless soft/leather corals), most likely na ung die offs from your live rocks. Better kung icycle mo muna ung tank mo bago ka mag add ng live stocks...2 weeks young...nid mo icycle tank mo for 4 weeks...enough na ung die offs mo galing sa live rocks mo for cycling wag ka nang mag add ng fishes..kawawa cla :cry: ...and dont let any light to enter your aquarium, magkaka algae ka...

*pure water lng ang nag eevaporate, wlang kasmang salt, so kung nag dadagdag ka ng tubig to replenish to evaporated water, dapat tubig lng, walang asin...tataas specific gravity ng tubig mo kung saltwater parin ang i-aadd mo...always monitor your SG...

*i think wla ka png test kits...buy ka kahit pang-alk at pang-nitrates pa lng muna...

Details about your set up needed...

PATIENCE...

Good luck buddy!!!

Important din po kapag nagccycle ang test kit for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate and phosphate. Dapat zero ang ammonia and nitrite bago maglagay ng corals or fish.

Important din ang temperature monitor lalo na ngayong summer. Pag lumagpas ng 29 ang temp maglagay ka ng cooling fan for evaporative cooling at dagdagan ng purified water pag nababawasan ang water mo.

Need mo rin ng phosphate remover kapag nagpapakain ka na ng fish.

Sinlaki ng bandehado ang full-grown regal blue tang, not suitable sa 75 gallons. If you wish to have a reef tank, RESEARCH. Huwag mag-overstock ng isda kung gusto mo rin ng corals. :D
