I recently bought 6 blue caribbean reef chromis from Live Aquaria Diver's Den.
My fault for not checking and just letting my daughter acclimate and add to the tank.
They came in with Ich, I've lost 7 fish in 7 days now.
I only have Blue Hippo Tang, Cleaner Wrasse and 1 chromis left.
Lost 2 clowns overnight last night.
Not sure how long they will last without a QT or any meds.

Question how long do I go fallow before adding fish. 76 days?
PS from now on I'm going to get fully QT'd fish from LFS, Dr Reef or TSM Aquatics.

Request two, unlucky! :)

Sorry to hear about that.

I learned a valuable lesson.
Just want to share good with bad and all the heartache to maybe save someone else of the same issues.
Sad today, those clowns just started spawning before being put in the new larger tank.

We'll spend some good time researching and picking out new fish.
Always wanted Galaxy Clarkii Clownfish, now where to find them QT'd?....probably nowhere!!
These look close enough https://tsmaquatics.com/collections...inctus-clownfish-amphiprion-bicinctus-wysiwyg

yes ,can also fall apart,depends how fast and how many moves too fast.
Ok so it was bleached when it came in. I stuck it in low flow low light. It has started opening up. I’ll keep my eye on it.

Definitely will, thanks!
I will be in contact with my LFS New Wave Aquaria, also TSM Aquatics and Dr Reef.
My daughter is going to lose it when she comes home from her sleepover at grandpa's last night.
She loved those clowns, she just lost her Nemo and Madeline.
I've been prepping her for this for the past 2-3 days as I can see what's been happening.
