    Before doing a water change

    I take a powerhead and go over all the live rock, or base rock for that matter, to get all of the excess waste in suspension. This is not harmful to the beneficial bacteria is it? Is there anything wrong with doing this?

    In case I see symptoms on fish in DT

    I have a QT undergoing hyposalinity right now that has a flame angel with ick. If some of my fish in my display tank start to show symptoms, do I have to set up another qt? Or can I just take a very long time to acclimate them? Like 12 to 24 hrs?

    Water changes in an uncycled QT

    Once I get my fish in QT and get the salinity down to 1.009, how often and how much of a water change am I supposed to do with a 10g QT? I need to do water changes often enough to keep the system from cycling, so I am not sure what is adequate, or what is safe for the fish.

    Micro-bubbles in aquarium?

    Are there supposed to be micro-bubbles floating in the water? My lfs said that you should see a few, and that it is a good indication that the water is well oxygenated, but then I read a thread about someone trying to get rid of them. So should there be some? Are they bad?
