...I'm going through a copepod bloom in our 180 right now. I thought it was dust or something at first cause of screen tops being added. It seems to be a pretty large bloom. Anything I can do to help it go away? I've heard that a serious bloom could starve the oxygen and harm the fish...
I am not an expert, and hopefully #reefsquad can help, but I would carefully do a large water change (50%+) to lower copper and try your best to not stress out the fish during this
then I would get general cure at your local pet supply store tomorrow and use it. Without pictures, it seems this...

You can also type in #reefsquad to get people dedicated to finding solutions to respond.
Good luck. I really think you are off to a good start by asking BEFORE you actually do...
First, can you list the parameters of the tank (I know you said ok, but numbers help). Very helpful if you had any numbers from before and after the water change (e.g. ammonia, salinity, temperature, etc.)
Second, did you match the salinity and temperature of the WC water? When you...
...have in my 20g 2 clowns, a cleaner shrimp, 4 blue leg hermits, 4 margarita snails and 1 emerald crab.
Also, could someone please teach me all the coral categories ( like, LPS, SPS, is there more?). I really like the look of LPS like wavign hand or flame torch corals.
Thanks for the help...
I don't really have any coral in my tank except few snails and discosoma.
Those infected fish is not eating now, may I know can I dose kanaplex directly into the tank for treatment?
If yes, do I need to turn off my skimmer?
Is there any other thing that I need to take note of...
...it has helped. It is also affecting corals in completely different parts of the tank, minus the 2 that were touching, the stylo was on the far right side of the tank, red planet/stag in the center, frags were in various parts of my rock, on a rack and in a frag section of my sump.
Mine would be the Wisconsin Crabby Patties, and clearly Tomatoa would be our mascot.
@revhtree would be my quarterback. you show Aaron Rodgers how to properly throw a ball!
The rest of the #MODS team and #reefsquad would be my team :D
Mods would be my offensive and reefsquad my defensive.
...Ultimately you're going to need to focus on proper nutrition, aeration, detoxifying ammonia, and proven treatments of the remaining fish to prevent their death.
...and their stability. DKH , Ca, mg, temp salinity
Are corals dying? What do you mean by not doing well polyp extension color etc info
Pics of corals could be helpful as well Any livestock that might pick at your corals?
The more info you can provide the better let’s get the squad
...Its been about 24 hours and im not noticing a difference. I just recently put my powerhead slightly out of the water to create more bubbles, because it says you need to INCREASE oxygenation. Is this going to work? Or do the bubbles need to be coming from the bottom or smth?? #reefsquad please...
...all, and thanks for being here for the whole ride. Cant wait for the next build.
Would like to take a moment to thank all the staff and #reefsquad here for giving me a utopia to take reefing head on and succeed. Couldnt have ever pulled it off without this forum. Lucky enough to say I have...
