It was a little foggy on my walk this morning. But it is supposed to get near 90 today.
I posted this in 2011. Now I realize I got my reward as my reef is older than 50. I can relax now and if it crashes next Thursday I will still call it a successI am in my 60s now so I also don't know how long I will have, but I hope to get the tank to 50
But we don’t take them straight from the ocean. They go thru multiple holding systems in multiple countries that are teaming with diseaseIt boggles my mind what people do to fish. I can't believe any of them live through this sily process.
You get a healthy fish from the sea then dose it with poisons in the hope the fish has something that you are curing while you are killing the poor animal.
I mean "de-worm" I never de wormed a fish in the 60+ years I have been doing this and I had more fish than StarKist tuna.
There is nothing wrong with the fish we are buying unless we gave the thing some stupid illness.
Then after we poison it a while, it gets something else, probably something I have never heard of.
I am sure I am doing something wrong because my fish would never get these things as they are not allowed to.
I give up but I do feel sorry for all the fish we kill with what we perceive is kindness.
Not with by far the largest wholesaler in the UK they don't. Fish go from the reef to the holdng centre then to the UK where they rest in the wholesalers Trooical Markbe centre before going to the LFS. If they need treatment they are treated at TMC before they go to the LFS. Cant vouch for the US however.But we don’t take them straight from the ocean.

For some reason I don't get sick fish or maybe if I do, they just get cured on their own with proper care.But we don’t take them straight from the ocean. They go thru multiple holding systems in multiple countries that are teaming with disease
I thought that was a Yellow Tang?I caught that Scopus tang that I wanted to remove after he killed my Copperband.
I used a method I devised many years ago. I just kept a large net in the tank right near the front glass and for a couple of days I fed the fish right into the net.
After 2 days he was comfortable enough to go inside the net to eat. Then I just quickly move the net against the front glass and no more tang.
The other fish I caught with him were returned to the tank.
Some scopas tangs can look identical with some very small differences. Some big differences are the eye and longer dorsal or anal fins. If it’s got a brown eye it’s usually a Yellow Scopas Tang, as for the elongated dorsal I’m pretty sure if I remember correctly this is a characteristic of the Scopas as well however I’d check the eye first personally.I thought that was a Yellow Tang?
