    Copper treatment and TT into new system question

    Hi all, So we are currently in the process of building our new tank and were going to treat all our fish from our old system with copper power as we have seen signs of ich on them in the past. My question is: should we do the full 30 day treatment or, since the new tank is using none of the...

    A somewhat long 'myth busters' Poll

    There are a lot of truisms (some would say myths) - in this hobby. Note - the word myth - is not meant to suggest anything negative about any of these points. Just that they are 'common' things we read every day on the forums. In the poll there is a 'commonly expressed 'statement' and its...

    QT - Why it sometimes fails?

    I would like to hear from people who 'Quarantine' their fish - not from those who do not use this method. This is not designed to determine what percent of people use QT methods - but rather those who do - what percentage have had a failure.... Lets discuss the reasons why it is 'great' -...

    Personal Experience A Hypocrites View on Not Using Quarantine

    Little in this hobby stirs up as much emotional debate as discussions on quarantining fish. Threads on prophylactic treatment, ich management, and immunity are regularly hashed out until people are burned out. Passions run high, and for good reason. Both sides of the debate feel their practices...

    Ich and new fish

    I am upgrading to a much larger tank and have around 6 new large fish coming. Harlequin tang and similar sizes. I never added new fish to my old tank after initial stocking, since I’m more of a coral guy, and the old tank was disease free. My LFS has quarantined the my new fish fish in a reef...

    Is this the correct QT procedure?

    So I have finished my fallow period, the fish that survived the ick are back in the display and I'm picking out fish. I have a 40 gallon set up, already sanitized and cycled. I want to implement copper this time rather than hyposalinity just for the best results. I have backup tanks that I want...

    Wrasses Yawning, Scratching, and Lethargic

    I have an Exquisite Fairy Wrasse and an Orange-Back Fairy Wrasse that are in quarantine. I recently noticed them scratching their gills on the PVC fittings and yawning. So I did some research and decided to dose PraziPro. I have read that it could be caused by flukes or ich. It makes sense that...

    Quarantine System Tests

    When I run a quarantine system (new fish or corals), what water tests should I run and how frequently. Obviously, test copper when you are medicating with copper, but how often should that be tested (my guess would be daily)? How often do you test ammonia, nitrates, nitrites, alkalinity...

    Copperband Butterfly with an infection? Help?

    Just noticed my CBB has a nasty looking spot on his side in the middle and I’m trying to figure out what it might be. Maybe a bacterial infection? He’s swimming around fine and eating very well like always. I’ve had him about a year and a half. Not sure what actions to take and what to treat him...

    I think my wrasse has a spinal injury

    Hi everyone. My wrasse has lacked vigor in his swimming effort since I received him about a week ago. She’s a golden rhomboid fairy wrasse. She seems to have full motion in her dorsal fin, but I have yet to see any definitive motion in the causal fin. Thoughts? Suggestions? Thanks!

    Feeding corals in a coral only tank?

    I am setting up a RedSea Nano as a quarantine frag tank, as the first step prior to adding corals to the display. It will be totally fish free. I intend to just use kalkwasser in the ATO for Alk and Ca but, how is best to feed a fish free tank? Will the likes of RedSea Reef energy be enough to...

    Flasher Wrasse QT

    I am picking up my very first wrasse this week. I have a 20 gallon QT tank set up but I have some questions. I understand wrasse are sensitive to some chemicals. In the past I've used Prazipro and Cupprasafe. Are there ok? Should I skip them and just do an observation QT? If I use egg crate to...

    Red claw crabs in quarantine

    I just set up a small 5 gallon tank and am thinking about getting a red claw crab or two and giving them a island, but also being able to house a quarantined fish in there if things turned south. Will red claw crabs live long in full scale saltwater? Or should I just abandon that idea?
