Today marks the completion of 30 days Copper and 3 doses of PraziPRO. Water is hazy. I did 50% WC, start running carbon and Polyfilter, also turned on the skimmer and UV. All fishes are well except for 2 Anthias with ragged fins and cotton like growth on the fin edge. Will keep in view of the condition.

Insofar coming out of QT results are promising. Currently, tank is still fish only with PVC, awaiting a commissioned rock scape to be completed, reverting back to my STICKS & STICKS scape/theme.

For the time being, I am managing nutrients down with dosing LaCl and NOPOX to the SPS keeping PO4 0.03 and NO3 5ppm. Trimming the fish count if necessary.

Commissioned an Aqua scape from Instagram: wl_marine (Korea) early DEC 2022…

770a435d-fb10-430e-a201-4586f2dfa459.jpeg

Took delivery in late AUG 2023, unfortunately with several breakages. The seller provided a repair kit containing sand and glue. Didn't get down to repairing it till now. Will be introducing to the display this month. On hindsight, should have gotten 2 small structures instead of a large one.

Currently, the display tank remains Fish Only with PVC since my last post. All the fishes remain disease free without UV.

I’m set up a holding tank for all my display fishes while I slowly introduce SPS. I will be keeping the SPS display fallow for 3 months from the last SPS before bringing the fishes back in.
