Seriatapora dying

Hello,

I bought a seriatapora (however you spell it) from petco, it is in really bad condition. I have ecotech radion lights at 50% intensity in a 20 gallon nuvo fusion. I have 4 damselfish (2 clowns, 1 yellowtail, 1 domino or whatever it is- I call it domino) My nutrients are 0.25 phosphate, 10 nitrate, 35 salinity with apex, dosing kalkwasser, I am doing a water change tomorrow to bring the nutrients down but I did put some no3 po4x in today. Anyways"¦ how do I keep this thing alive?

... I did not notice this post was over a week old :O

You did not include KH or PAR. Both are critical. Make sure KH is stable, and make sure PAR (light) is below 300 and heavy blue with just enough white to look ok. I would not start chasing nutrients in a newer tank.


I would not go reducing nutrients yet, especially if the tank is new. If not, just do it very slowly.
