NO2 is a highly toxic substance, which can cause huge damage to fish and corals, and even death. The NO2 level must be monitored at the beginning of the tank, and it must be reduced to 0 before it can be released! A normal aquarium should not detect NO2. If the NO2 is high, you need to add nitrifying bacteria and increase the filter material. Reduce feeding, change water more.
NO3 is a decomposition product of NO2. An increase in the value will cause corals to brown or even die, and fish tanks are also prone to algae growth. Generally, SPS should be controlled to 0, 5 or more is high, LPS should be controlled below 20 as much as possible, and the FOT tank should not burst red as much as possible. Fishes will easily get sick or even die.
The NO3 of coral origin in the sea is actually 0. There is no saying that LPS needs high NO3. What corals want is real.
In the food, not inorganic nutrients. If NO3 is high, it should be controlled from the following aspects:
(1) Reduce the input first, including feeding less, and reducing the biological density;
(2) Increase output: including more water changes, equipment upgrades, large egg skimmer changes, increased algae tank ATS, use of MP bricks, and use of bean cookers to cook dog bones and black beans.
PH seawater type
Every time the pH value drops by 1, it means that the PH concentration in the water drops by 10 times, which is destructive to corals and fishes are prone to get sick, so it is important to monitor the pH regularly.
PO4 levels higher than 0.25 will cause algae growth, higher PO4 will also bring brown algae red mud, and severely cause coral death, SPS is particularly sensitive to PO4.
NH3 is a highly toxic substance that can cause huge damage to fish and corals, and even death. It is the primary product of the decomposition of fish tank garbage. It needs to be decomposed into NO2 under the action of nitrifying bacteria, and then decomposed into relatively low-toxic NO3.
The level of NH3 must be monitored at the beginning of the start of the tank, and it must be reduced to 0 before the creature can be released! A normal aquarium should not detect NH3. If the measured NH3 is high, you need to add nitrifying bacteria and increase the filter material. Reduce feeding and change water.
The Ca value is a must-measured data for hard coral reef tanks! The main components of coral bones are calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate! Corals and organisms are not fast to use. So you add more calcium and kh than magnesium. You should add magnesium to about 3 times the calcium content. If your calcium is at 420ppm, then magnesium should be at 1280ppm. If the magnesium is too low, even if you add calcium and kh all day, it will be more difficult to improve. Keep your magnesium at 1280ppm and corals will grow faster.
The magnesium content in the tank is about 3 times the calcium content. If your calcium is at 420ppm, then magnesium should be at 1280ppm. If the magnesium is too low, even if you add calcium and kh all day, it will be more difficult to improve.
Keep magnesium at 1280ppm. At this time, coral growth will speed up. Because magnesium carbonate is an important component of coral bones.
The KH value is an important data in the aquarium! The main components of coral bones are calcium carbonate and magnesium carbonate! Its level determines the state of the coral. A low KH value will make the coral state worse, soft corals shrink, and bony corals fall off the bottom , No hairy.
PH freshwater type
The acidity and alkalinity of water, PH7.0 is neutral, higher than 7.0 is alkaline, and lower than 7.0 is acidic. Different fish like different pH values. Maintaining an appropriate pH in the tank is very important for the healthy growth of the fish.
The gH value is the content of calcium ions and magnesium ions in fresh water. These minerals exist in tap water, well water and bottled mineral water. The gH value in tap water depends on the source of water quality and the process of treatment. Hard water 200mg/ contains higher calcium and magnesium content, while soft water is 50-100mg/L.
The copper test agent is mainly used to detect the concentration of CU in the tank when the copper medicine is applied. Copper is a toxic drug. Generally, the concentration of copper ions needs to be controlled to 0.3-0.5mg/L. If it is low, it has no effect, but if it is high, it will kill fish.
Although most fish can tolerate 0.8mg/L copper content, it is not recommended to exceed 0.6mg/L copper content
