I thought that it was normal, but it's a large leather and didn't want it to nuke the tank.

They might be microbubbles. I assume it's a HOB (hang-on-back) filter? Is the spout above the water line? If so, the water might be "pushing" air under and forming microbubbles, which are, for the...

Most fish can tolerate nitrates in excess of 1000ppm. Invertebrates in general (this includes corals) are not nearly as forgiving.

MH bulbs are similar to a lot of fluorescent bulbs in many regards, anyways. I'd be more worried about halogen lamps.

The only flow in the QT is an ACMini, but I keep it running. The food usually sinks to the bottom after 15 minutes or so, however.

They're not fat, but their stomachs aren't sunken in. They've been eating enough, but they definitely aren't fat.

Which concerns me.

I've been doing what the bag said +maybe 10% more, but I don't know what number that will give me. I just know I dumped bags of salt into my tank when I filled it and ended up at 1.025.

How much IO does it take to make one gallon of SW at 1.025? The bag gives an amount, but that mixes to 1.020.

TIA.
