Had a thread going in reef (I think) about my Serpent star losing parts of his leg..no one has responded with an answer.
now today he died along with an emerald crab and cleaner shrimp. The pic above also shows a sifting star with legs deteriorating also, and an open brain that has a mouth open wide which makes me think that maybe she is also dying or dead. Does anyone know what could be going on here.
I have some more test kits ordered, but for the ones i have, the params are:
ph 7.8 (can't seem to get it above that)...any suggestions here
nitrates 5 or 10 (can't read the colors too good)
1.25 on the thing with the swinging arm.
Don't know what it could be. i am besides myself with all this going on. Also, it seems that I can never keep any pep sh alive. And last week one of my large snails died.
can anyone shed any light on any of this. It may be only one or more problems.
Oh, last night when I was feeding some corals and turned the pump off, I forgot it till tonight. So it was off for 24 hours. also my daylight light went off and my order for it will not come in till Friday. So its been off for 3 days now.
Also that thing on the left in pic is my feather duster that looks dead too. His feather came missing about a week ago.
