    Probably absorption, just dose it on up to where you want to be!

    I think I’m just a touch under on my volume calculation. I’m dosing for 15g but it might be at 16.

    Going to dose the extra 6% tomorrow am - 2.65 ml instead of 2.5.

    Once I’m done dosing, I’ll do testing every two days- I’ll see if absorption comes into play at that point. It’s weird though- my first and third QT had zero change from the set point after the last dose, the second QT needed additional maintenance doses every 3-4 days. Same 10g, hob, media format.

    That is a bit strange. The joy of the good ol Hanna is it's easy to adjust/compensate if necessary.

    New biospira bottle for QT 2... maybe a more robust biofilm?

    Is there a formula to figure out how much salt to add to a certain volume of water if your salinity is low?

    Quick one-

    Pink spotted goby is fully healed. Maybe a little bit of a ‘clumsy’ bite on the right side of the mouth, but no redness or anything else apparent.

    Day 10 NFG is today, planning to transfer to DT tomorrow. That makes 6 weeks QT, 7 different drug treatments, 9 water changes of 50% or greater.

    I’m sure she’ll be happy to graduate tomorrow.

    What kind of pen do you write on the glass with? A paint pen? I looked at them and the odor was so strong! BTW a new FTS is in order! And a fishroom shot too! I will post one too!

    Sure thing boss!

    I’m taking what feels like my first break in 3 days- watching airline disasters and stuffing my face with hummus right now, though, lol

    It’s a chalk marker pen. Zero VOC. Found them in my wife’s art crap, I’ll get a model number for you

    Fishroom is in need of a tidy- im putting together my not so secret project whenever I have spare time. Which I haven’t had since Tuesday...

    I just noticed the PT has a split dorsal fin.

    It’ll heal, right?

    They are in copper at 1.83ppm (day 4) and have had a dose of GC (day 5) and a dose of met (day 7)

    VOC is noticeable if you sniff it but I can’t smell it when in use

    Major Bummed!!

    Went down to check the QTs this morning, and my tangs have black ich.

    The store I bought them had it 2-3 months ago. So I kinda half expected it.

    Anyway- deets:

    5 days acclimation to relieve a little HLLE in the PT and get them eating
    Day 1: start 3 day copper power ramp up to 1.75ppm
    Day 3 pm: confirmed copper power at 1.83ppm
    Day 5: GC
    Day7: Met. Copper power at 1.78
    Day 8: 70% WC due to cloudiness and build up of detritus. Copper power maintained in change water at 1.80
    Day9: Met. (Today)
    Day 11: GC
    Day 15: DT barring any issues


    They are on day 9 and got their Met, then I noticed the black spot in the YT


    Thinking I will start Prazipro, two rounds five days apart, and keep dosing Met every two days until I’m done with Prazipro . That combo essentially takes the place of the second GC dose.


    That’s the plan, but I’m on the tail end of being alone and having two kids off daycare for 3 days , so my judgement might be a little lacking right now. Actually, having two kids off daycare while wife away working DEFINITELY shows a lack of judgement...

    Any chance I can have a second opinion?

    @HotRocks
    @4FordFamily


    On a brighter note: pink spotted goby appears fully healed, yesterday was day 10 of NFG. Into the DT today/tomorrow!
