    Sorry I misread that, I thought it said 10g somewhere. 30 will be fine.

    Copper is easiest IMO. Tangs generally do very well in copper.

    Most Blue hippo tangs will not tolerate CP. They are definitely a fish I would treat with copper.

    Also most anthias and several of the Wrasse genus will not tolerate CP either.

    You can poke a small hole in the bag to get a water sample with a syringe and the match the salinity of the qt tank before opening the bag

    Thank you! I’m ready to set up the treatment tank. I’m going to start gathering my equipment needed. If I have any more questions I’ll post them here!

    How big is your display tank? That’s a whole lot of tang for anything less that 180g.

    Took this pic just now. You can see how small the fish look in comparison. It looks barren. BE0C7F38-85AD-4B82-BC5C-AA937E993E7C.jpeg

    curious - were you asking about QT when the fish are already in the tank (nice tank BTW)

    FYI - what I meant was 'I dont recommend one thing or another' - there are other guys here much more versed in QT than I... ie #Reefsquad... I didnt mean 'I dont recommend something you are or aren't doing'

    Thanks! And no, I just ordered the fish online today. It’s gonna be delivered in 3 weeks. These fish were mine from before. That yellow tang was there for a long time.

    I would highly recommend contacting your vendor and asking what the shipping salinity will be. Set your tank up for that salinity. They may not always be right but it gives you a great starting point. When the fish arrive use a needle and syringe to pierce the bag below the water line and draw enough water to test salinity. Be ready with a piece of tape to slap over the hole. This gives you time to make an adjustment if you need to without allowing air in and changing the pH in the bag...there by converting the ammonia back to it's toxic form.

    Over the years I usually know within 0.001 what the salinity will be from the vendors I've used the most.....not always though so that's why you check.
