The only fish I lost was a qt lol. I was putting them directly in after drip acclimation, but read so many posts talking about qt for weeks, I figured I must be doing it wrong. it was a horrible experience!
Don't worry too much, I've been blocked for months.Why no one likes the advice that I provide. I guess I am just not popular enough, because it seems that popularity is the sole qualification for your understanding. Better block me again, because in your world I have nothing to say.
This is the part that makes me take issue with so much that you have to say. I am on block so I doubt you will respond, but what is it that I did in 2019? I have only been on this board as my tag states Jun 2, 2020. Perhaps you know me IRL?
At least that I have that .. fish tank owner. I went through point by point. I stated what I disagreed with. Do I need to hire experts to assure that I am "right" according to you?
You are on a fish board. You are answering questions. You don't own your own aquarium.
I am IRL. I interact with people there. I have owned my own store. I have worked in many many others. I have been doing this since 1983. But please let me know what I am doing because it would be good to know what that is.
That does indeed make you popular.
Actually you have done that to Ying Yang, you were less than kind to him.
When I provide critiques I usually provide solutions. Sometimes it take a bit to get to that but I do if others want answers provide answers. Needless to say I am not popular and usually not forceful enough so those that see those traits as being useful in fish keeping rarely listen to me.
Maybe I don't post my discoveries here because of your response. Maybe I am working at a level that others have not yet reached. It seems funny to me that most of the things I have questions about I use PM to accomplish.
Being popular doesn't make you right it just makes you popular.
Best you put me back on block because nothing is to be gained from conversations with me.
Spot on.Interesting topic and responses. I guess I will make mine short...LOL. I do not QT, not because of cost, or space, but because I choose not to. Have I lost fish....sure here and there especially as as newbie, not to disease, but newbie mistakes. I do have ich in my tank, but rarely a outbreak. I rarely add new fish, my fish I do have, have been with me a long time.
A majority of my fish are wrasses, and they are imo very healthy and happy as are the rest of my fish.
I keep great water quality, feed well, and have a stable stress free environment for them. I have learned through the years to really pay attention to what fish you add to avoid aggression which is a huge stressor for all your fish.
One thing I won't do is tell another Reefer what to do or what not to do with his or her tank. I just enjoy my own piece of the reef, and let others do the same!
What on earth are you going on about?@BVF
Hi all, first post here, hope to contribute over time, but for now, unfortunately I need some help please. Long time FW aquarist and in early June converted our 75g to a saltwater tank. fully cycled, through the uglies, everything is stable, etc… On June 30 I added this Powder Brown Tang, and...www.reef2reef.com
do you see any operating key terms, outcomes, actions there? arent all internet jokesters secretly complying intently behind the scenes?
Im glad Jay saved ya. Rowereef was just about to though, by letting you know he doesn’t have to qt.
you had a sub eight month tank and got an outbreak, my stats are terrible. Without the find all threads feature y’all seem invincible. And funny
Are you calling a post on a forum created by random people asking for advice "Public work threads"?
Are you calling peoples experiences written onto the internet ona public forum board "work links"?
Are you seriously saying you "manage" peoples threads simply because you comment on them?
Are you calling posts people start asking for advice about cycling "Your cycle threads"?
Just curious, it would help me understand how you word things - You come across like you are paid by this forum to "WORK" yet im pretty sure you're just another random like myself commenting on a public forum about a hobby. No offence intended - Just curious on how you word things, i find your posts difficult to read.
Ironic isnt it....................Why won’t you answer the simple question
Currently - My best advice to new reefers or old existing ones is to avoid your drivvle.Why won’t you answer the simple question I repeat ask about what’s the best advice for new reefers?
Brandon - Lets not make random stuff up here.I even read your latest posts and can’t get a clear answer from you, you seem to make follow up posts after me in cycling threads as a prime motivation for posting here, so your words haven’t added anything we can use to lower the degree of fish loss for new tanks. You merely dropped in to flame, not contribute, nice post legacy.
