ericalee353 posted a topic in Beginners DiscussionSo i got 2 clownfish from my local fish store and added them to my tank on 2/7 (it’s 2/11/20 today). They havent eaten yet as far as i can tell. I’ve seen one of them take a flake in there mouth and spit it out, put it back in their and mouth and spit it out repeated a few times. One time the other clown did it with a pellet. (i’m still trying to figure out what food they’ll eat. So far tried flakes, pellets, and san francisco marine cuisine frozen food. No success with any of them.) the water param seems fine i think. salinity 1.023 temp 77.7-78.1 ammonia: <0.25 nitrite: 0 nitrate: 1ppm maybe? pH: 8.2 i havent done a water change yet. on the first day they were put in the tank one of the clownfish pooped fine but the other had white stringy poop attached to it. and then on the first/second day i noticed his face area isn’t quite clean looking? (Please see photo) the other one has it too but just not as much. Is it flukes? should i do a freshwater dip? Do i need medication? If so, what medication is safe? I don’t have any other fish or coral. Just 2 clowns with rock. also one of the clown’s pelvic fin is “clamped”? Like it’s attached to its stomach and won’t open up like the other clown. also also how do i coax them into eating?
OK, so this might not be the right forum, and I haven't done my research yet , but here goes. Day 1: The clutch is currently in a 100 gallon tank with sump. Flow is very slow (just the return, and less than 10 times turnover). The only other fish (besides the parents) in the tank is a bicolor blenny. I have a number of questions: All I have for food (that might be suitable) is Coral Frenzy; would this be enough, or do I need rotifers? Should I grind the Coral Frenzy up further with a mortar and pestel? Should I remove the rock and put it in a 20L with an airstone, or leave it be in the 100 gallon and just transfer the fry? Or is it just unrealistic to think that I can save some? Any help would be appreciated. I'll do a little research in the meantime.
