I’ve been there. I netted it of the sand once a week , ran GFO, added some flow and eventually it passed. Good luckThanks! It’s a work in progress, the cyano algae is ongoing issue I can’t seem to fix, if I could get that right I would be a lot happier with the DT
I see some really nice fish in here. And some pretty hard to keep ones too. Do you mind sharing your qt process?
I feel like internal parasite treatment and then reactive treatment is a pretty effective form of qt. I’m sorry about the multibar but I have never really heard of a succes (more than a year) with them. Glad that the moorish idol is doing well. They are definitely one of my favorite fish. You really can’t beat the presence and grace of a healthy specimen.So I virtually don’t QT, I try to buy from reputable stores that I personally trust, Live Aquaria Divers Den, NYAquatic and a few others. Then I match the QT tank water to that the fish will be shipped in.
Upon arrival I float the bag for 45 mins, then open bag, quickly check salinity to verify same as QT, then scoop out and release into QT.
Second day I do a water change with higher Salinity water to bring up the salinity a bit. Then start Prazi-Pro and run for 7 days.
After the week of Prazi-Pro, I start bringing up salinity with water changes over course of a few days.
During this whole time, I’m monitoring to make sure fish is healthy, if after prazi, and bringing salinity up the fish looks healthy, I add them to the DT.
I highly advocate the use an oversized UV, I think that’s why I get away with minimum QT.
The moorish idol is doing great and is super healthy. I lost the Multibar, he just never ate anything I put in, he last about 4 months I assume he was eating something but not enough to sustain him. I frankly believe them to be a fish best left in the ocean.
