I put my fish out of QT and they were in there for 2 months with Copperpower. After 2 weeks in the display tank something have broken out and eating the fish please help
thats what ive been feeding themLooks like lymphocystis but can’t confirm as pics are very blue
If so, associated with both water quality and diet
If you’re using api test kits, you may have false readings and not aware.
Feed at minimum:
Nori seaweed basted with garlic extract
Spirulina brine shrimp
LRS herbivore diet
Hikari mega veggie diet
Did you acclimate them to the tank from quarantine?
No one fights. They were in a 75 Gallons QT for 2 months and everyone was great and now they are in a 8ft 240 everyone literally broke out at the same timeAppears to be lymphocytis. Bad news is there really isn’t any cure for it. Good news is that it often clears up on its own with good water quality and nutrition. Thats an awful lot of tangs. If they are fighting that can cause wounds which is an open invitation to lymphocytis.
The powder blue though looks like there’s something additionally wrong with him. Fins are frayed and looks emaciated.
Will add @Jay Hemdal to get his take.
They just got put into the tank and they are fully opened. Along with the DuncanGood water quality has been emphasized here already. Have you had a chance to check your water parameters? In one of your pics, your Zoas look completely closed up. Usually not a good sign.
They are breathing mostly normal and everyone is still aggressively eatingI see multiple possible issues, none of it is classic Lymphocytis. The scopes has the start of HLLE. The hepatus may have mucus plugs, we see that on those after copper treatments. Not sure what the purple tang has. Are any of the fish breathing fast or off their feed?
