    The only ammonia test i have heard that wont give false reading no matter what water treatment you use is the one made by Seachem... I use Prime as my water treatment and was told it can lead to false readings as well. As far as your ammonia spike, check the ph... From an earlier post it already...

    Volitan Lion Behavior

    Volitan Lion Behavior

    New to the "aggressive" side of the hobby. Just set up a 55. Tank now has a Niger Trigger and a Volitan Lion. Im just wondering what is typical behavior for a lion.

    can i mix shrimps/cleaners???or no?

    i had a fire shrimp and cleaner shrimp in a 55. i added a coral banded (the one with long arms) and he was ok. shortly after i upgraded to a 120 and a few days later the coral banded was dead. i assume the cleaner killed him. they went at it a little in the 55.
