If you bought it from a a store here in the US, they would probably refund your money too. The problem is that they sell it without quarantining it and/or probably nursing it to health first. They are more than willing to sell the fish like this. Maybe 10-20% come back for a refund but someone did the math and decided 20% returns on dead fish was a better business model then treating and acclimating new arrivals for a week or two.
it bums me out.
Yes I think it was mucus like. Once I started with the antibiotics, they look like it’s drying out. There’s also a thick string of slime/mucus in QT now.These lumps you see are mucus formed around parasites.
Quarantine and treat with coppersafe according to package directions and increase aeration during treatment.
If stuff came off in the container during FW dip, those may be flukes.Hello,
I need y’all help. I bought a purple tang, kole tang, and a tomini tang 2 weeks ago. Foxface from a different supplier. The tomini tang died 2 days after I bought it. I have everyone in a 29 gallon QT right now. They’re in copper power at 2.54ppm. Tested with Hanna checker. I believe they have velvet because before I put them into my tank I did a fw dip. A lot dirt/flakes came off the purple tang. The kole tang had bruises on her side a day after I bought her. I believe a secondary bacterial infection due to velvet. Kole tang has already healed. Im treating with metroplex and kanaplex. Everyone else is good, swimming, and eating normally.
My purple tang has white patches and it’s getting worse. He’s acting lethargic. Still eating but moving slowly. They don’t look like lumps, they’re flat. Does anyone know what it is? Pictures below.
This QT is an established tank. With 2 HOB aquaclear 70s and 2 air stone sponges. I’ve QT a blue hippo tang and 2 clowns successfully. They’re in the DT now.
