    LTA problems?

    Hey Guys,

    Ive been on reefcentral for 3-4 years and had no frikin clue this site existed. thank god I found you guys. The yanks were just not doin it for me. lol

    I have this LTA with is huge and seems to be quite healthy, never gets to shrivel mode, huge trunk/foot, whos been in my tank for about 3-4 months. I feed him a big cocktail shrimp once a week. He's been in the same place happy as a pig in sh**. however today I saw that his foot is detaching from the cozy nook he seemed to love for the last few months. should I be worried? He;s not travelin, hes just detached and chillin. my params are okay, but i dont have auto top off and my sump loses up to 10 gallons sometimes before I have a chance to fill it up. is that flux in specific gravity a big deal? how much flux can you have with salinity before you should worry. I know it de[pends on tank inhabitants, but i mean generally.

    thanx in advance.

    Cool

    yes that is way to much loss for toppoff. salinity has to be stable all the time for things to stay healthy. auto topoff is as easy as a unit that TANGMAN here on AC builds and sells and a powerhead. Just send him a PM. WELCOME here as wellbud.
