NO CORALS.
by meat they mean shrimp pieces. The prawn we eat..take a fresh one and give half of it to the anemone...preferably once a week.
Dont over feed it as it can eat everyday...but what will happen is that the excess food will be rotting in the tank.
I did the mistake and it killed all the fishes i had at that point.

But, then again, i have the feeling that you will not listen to any advise anyone gives and do as you feel...so evidently the system will crash and then youd not repeat the same mistake!
in marine, we learn by getting the hits. Everyone went through this phase, even me!

Good thing was, i had krishnendu da (mod) there to guide me and i managed to jump back in after the crash.

1st thing, you have a volume of immature water in your tank with less amount of nitrosomonus and nitrococcus bacteria, those who has the heroic role in conversion of ammonia to nitrite and nitrite to nitrate.
Even nitrate isn't more or less harmfull for fishes but act as massive destroyer for inverts like shrimps, snails, corals, sponge etc.

Again asking have you bought pH, NH3, NO2, NO3, PO4 kits?

Whats the pH of your tank?

As well as whats the parameters of NO2, NO3?

And last time I'm saying that within coming 6months don't even think 'bout corals.

1st gather your experience 'bout fishes, how maintain salinity, pH,

How you have to dose Ca, Mg, I,

How to feed and how much feed your pets.

There are so many awsm threads on marine in KAC.
Go through them.

Make a chart, what to do first, what next.
How to do them.

And again , go slow.........go slow.

Shahjahan didn't make Tajmahal within 7days.
Give time to the time.

Except that you 'll crash everything bro.

Thats good bro.......... :D

Just try to understand heartly, nano fowlr or nano reef is extremely tough to maintain.
Even master mariners think second time, before they wish to start it.
As it needs lots and lots experience. And you have spoke many time that you have very less knowledge 'bout marine.

Nano needs 10 time better technique than a 6 or 4 feeter.
Its only becouse of less quantity of wate. So its tough to maintain all the water parameters.

Nano needs adequate quantity of LR for bio filtration, improved mechanical filtration, double volume sump wth skimmer, advanced auto top-up system to maintain salinity flactuation through evaporation.
Good idea 'bout target feeding to reduce the risk of excess ammonia or phosphate formation.
Proper dosing for stable Ca, Mg, I and other micro elements concentration.

Good light source and its timing.

And many other things.

So, be coutous and then get ready for your victry. :)

Before that, answer this question. Except that nobody can help you....

1. What is your tank water pH, NH3, NO2 parameters?

2. What kind of filtration are you using?

3. Whats the marine salt brand are you using?

4. How many leds are there? Whats the wattage? Haw many off them are actinic and how many are white?

Clear out these as soon as pssible.

Frankly speaking i dnt own any testkits.....yesterday evening i took some water from my tank and went to my lfs for checking....
Results:
Ph-8.1
Sg-1.023(i also tested it with my hydrometer)
Nh3-0
No2-dont know

The lfs told me that water is good but since my tank is only 24l,so i should not overstock it.....

Its inbuilt sump type filtration with only filter floss and sponge
Marine salt is instant ocean which i got 2kg loose from my lfs.
Already mentioned about lightning.....20 white and 10 blue total reading is 2.5 watt

And yes dont scold me now i will buy a testkit as soon as possible.by the way please tell,me which brand and approx price.saw the lfs mixing solutions with the saltwater and colour changing.he matched it with a book or something......luckily i did it today only...by the are those colours and values and method to use are mentioned in the teskit box??do i need new testkits for every checking or one will be enough???actually i dont know about it......

dosing = part A, part B. Contact kestho da or mithun da for details of dosage amount.

did you buy any test kits yet? if yes, whats the NO2 reading? check ammonia too.
the shrinking of anemone is not a big deal..it will move around too if it finds the place not hospitable.

taking advice and not listening to them is not something i would prefer. The new tank was not cycled and you have introduced quite a big amount of bioload. This tank seems even smaller than the one you had before.
if you feel like wasting money, do it more productively by investing in a skimmer for starters.

If the no2 reading is high, do a partial water change...also check the ph level.
