White spot and nitrite #1
It happens all at once dammit.
Moved the big tank and fish from Oxfordshire to the south coast 4 weeks ago, no worries.
Moved the grow on tank this week and bosh! Even with extra filter media help from the big tank the grow on tank has spiked with nitrite.
Turn around this morning and Napoleon 8" home grown Jack Dempsey is displaying white spot.

Water change on grow on tank, carbon removal on 2 external filters then treatment on big tank. Top up big tank and.........

running late to pick up children dammit
