    Thanks! I assume this product is reef safe? Would love to keep this fish and beat the ick and add some more in 6-8 weeks....is it really that easy???

    Well I am going to go ahead and return my clown to the LFS over tomorrow. He seems to be able to fight the ick just fine but want to rid the tank from the parasite so I can enjoy some other fish too......so in the 8 week fallow period, will focus on keeping my corals healthy. The tank keeps filling up one LFS trip at a time! Lucky to have a great fish store within an hour from me.😀

    Certainly could give that a shot.....I am just battling with that I will be gone to Europe for two weeks in early September and would like to use that as the fallow period. So do I get rid of the fish now.....so after I return, I can give it another shot...?

    Well some updated pictures.....got a healthy sized tricolor Arco yesterday from the LFS. My clown is still going strong despite the potential ich.....not sure what to do at this point. Take the clown out and go fallow for eight weeks? Or is there a way to keep the clown in there and get over it?

    Well it is interesting- I still have a clownfish in my tank that seems to be strong enough to beat it. That said....if I keep him in there - there is still a place for the parasite to prosper. Trying to decide what I should do with the clown as I don’t have room to setup a quarantine. Thoughts?

    Black spots on SPS?

    One more picture....it appears to be where the polyps are, maybe they just aren’t extended at the moment?

    Black spots on SPS?

    Just in the past couple of days have noticed these black spots on a couple of my SPS. They still seem to be healthy but didn’t know if it is something I should be concerned of?

    Picked up several frags and a striped blenny this afternoon. Just introduced them an hour or so ago so still opening up. Some pictures below -

    Another quick update...have been battling keeping fish alive and believe it is due to Ich being present. I have one clownfish who has fought that off and doing great....but am not really sure the best path forward to rid the parasites from the tank. I don't have and would prefer not to have a QT tank as I don't have the room for one. All of the corals are doing great! A couple updated shots below!

    Fish keep dying? Mystery...

    Well I thought I owe everyone an update.....one of my two clowns passed away on Wednesday but the other one seems to have fought the ich and is doing much better! I fed the flake food thanks to many of the suggestions here. I honestly am not too excited about setting up a QT tank, I just don't have the room for it..... Now that my fish has battled ich, does that mean it likely wouldn't attract it again? I guess my question is around whether or not the parasites will actually die now that I will have a fish in the tank that is living and has battled them once.

    Sounds good - will keep loading it up with corals!
