Got a good look at my lone hermit. Got him with my first cleanup crew order from Reef-cleaners 3 years ago. Shell’s about 2.5”.

That’s a big hermit. I always see small one so I never thought they got so big. Very cool

Scurvy I see TSM has a lineatus on there site. I may have to take a trip this weekend. I will have to think about it more to make sure it’s not a sloppy impulse buy

Interesting that the female is priced higher than the male.... thats usually the other way around.

And that hermits a terror. I now inly buy dwarfs but I didn't know any better when ai started. He crushes colonies like its his job.

I saw that the female was more money and was confused. Not sure I’m ready to drop that much on a lineatus. Life decisions lol

How is your Rhomboid doing? That is a must have also. Wish mine made it through qt.

She’s doing well. Wound up running through copper power and General Cure with the one Anthias that survived. Eating like a pig. Comes out of copper Sunday.

That makes me happy to hear. After such devastation it must have been hard not walking away.
Indeed it was! Im glad I didn't but I was close to taking a good long break. If the velvet reappeared after adding them back to the main display I was breaking down the large tank and just gonna keep the biocube running for a while til I found that urge again.

Guess it was a new fish added with velvet?
How long after adding it did it take for the outbreak?
Yep, it was the Swallowtail Angel. It was 3 or 4 days I think before I noticed some spots appearing on everyone. Then another 2 or 3 before I realized it wasn’t ich but velvet.

I have seen some velvet outbreaks after yours that took longer than I expected too. With every disease outbreak documented, I learn something. Maybe in the future these outbreaks will be a thing of the past.

My response time was pretty slow comparatively speaking. I see lots of people lose the entire tank in 48 hours. For me it was close to 7 days from when i first saw symptoms to when I got them into therapeutic copper. Actually Surprised I was able to save the six I did.

It honestly gives me hope that I do have some time to save them.

And a job well done to that. I lost 4 fish during my outbreak too. Never again.
