    Yellow tank and possibly flukes?

    Long story short, my yellow tang suddenly stopped eating and swimming out in the open, had some redness, and also was flashing. I quarantined it in copper and antibiotics for about 10 days, and the entire time in QT it seemed fine (wouldn't eat though). No flashing, healed from the red spots...

    Purple Tang Twitching. Eating Well. Neurological Damage?

    I have a new purple tang I bought off LA. I QT'ed for two weeks without any treatment before placing in DT. No visible marks on the skin or in or near the gills. However, this fish is super twitchy. It's like it has a tick. He's eating voraciously, but just acting super twitchy. Here's a video...

    I have a couple blue hippo tangs and cleaner wrasse currently in QT with 60mg/gal CP.

The larger blue hippo tang showed signs of ich, but...

    Hi reefers, in an other thread @bboileau92 hinted me to the microbiome test from Aquabiomics which is able to detect pathogens in an aquarium. Now I wonder if there are other ways to know/detect if there are some "dormant" pathogens/parasites like ich, velvet, flukes etc. in a completely...

    Quarantine poll

    Most of us believe that quarantining your fish is the best approach to avoid diseases wiping out our entire tank. I think most will agree on that. But ... does it also safe more fish lives overall?

Have been treating with Polyplab but it's getting worse. Please help diagnose! Can supply photos tomorrow, blue lights are on
