Ohh, and I forgot to tell you guys. The entire cabinetry will be completed hopefully in 15 business days!!!!
You saved me from asking. Go clean up so we can see (wow, there in no good way for me to finish this sentence) the derasa.The derasa clam is really dumb (it’s on the sand below the maxima). It keeps getting knocked on its side no matter how deep I bury it in the sand.
I might put it in the middle of the tank because the flow is less “intense”.
But I need to shower before I do that because I touched the water of the coral QT and I can’t cross contaminate.
I collect the sand in a pile and I stick it inside lol.Not to sound like a smart A, but I’m sure how you can “bury it in the sand” with that dusting you have
It’s pretty thoughI collect the sand in a pile and I stick it inside lol.
I bought a “clam holder” but I used it for the lobo because it also kept getting knocked over…oh, and that lobo brought in lots of aiptasia despite my completely covering the base with super glue
I'll work on that.
I have never kept butterflies, mainly because I am intimidated by them.I’m not worried about the aiptasia at all. I spoke to @eatbreakfast on a different forum that he’s active on (he’s a very reputable fish behavioralist expert).
He said he had great success with pyramid butterflies (h. zoster). He said a trio would work good for my tank when I asked. They will only pick at xenia and anthellia which I don’t keep.
I have heard that once uronema is in the tank, that it is there forever. Is that the case?I still have the 6 chromis left. One of them has a brownish red gash (it has had that for the past 2 weeks). It didn’t die yet which is weird because uronema kills within 2 days.
I stopped all medications. I’m just power feeding white worms (which they LOVE).
Here’s the gash that’s been there for 2 weeks. Only one has it. It almost seems like it’s healing which is weird. Uronema isn’t usually healable, so we’ll see:
I guess that I do not understand how it works then. If I introduce new fish then they may catch it, may not. Old fish may catch it or may not? Sorry for the questions but I am super paranoid about introducing anything.Yes, but it normally just feeds on detritus and bacteria.
I just looked it up... Found this and it has a pretty good explanation.I guess that I do not understand how it works then. If I introduce new fish then they may catch it, may not. Old fish may catch it or may not? Sorry for the questions but I am super paranoid about introducing anything.
Thanks. I am still terrified.I just looked it up... Found this and it has a pretty good explanation.
Uronema marinum What You Need To Know: * These are the red sores most often seen on chromis damsels; however it can afflict any fish. * Treatment of choice is a 45 minute formalin bath (e.g. Quick Cure), followed by transfer into a new/sterile QT. * Once in QT, it is very important to...humble.fish
You guys gotta be careful, because anything you say can and will be used against you in the court of law.

I agree with you completely.Yes, I wouldn't add anything without my own qt period. Nothing negative about TSM. I just don't want to risk it at this point.
