  1. I came home tonight to find both of my clownfish, seemingly, covered in these raised translucent spots. They look white- like ICH, but I don’t think they’re white enough to be ICH. My tank temperature is steady always been 74-77 degrees (F) and my PH is usually normal (around 7.8-8.1). I’ve been having a lot of trouble with my tank having increased amounts of ammonia/NH-3/NH-4 and although I’ve been using biological boosters and ammonia locking additives- nothing has fixed it. My clownfish have been fighting for dominance after I introduced the one in the photo a few weeks ago. I don’t believe their fighting is the issue but the fish in the photo has become slightly more lethargic. I have never treated ICH or brooklynella so I’m very concerned about what’s going on with my fish. Side note- one of my fish has started a habit of frequently opening their mouth and the other has randomly started sucking on my condy anemone’s tentacle? i don’t know... 🤷🏻‍♀️ if i can i will add a photo of my second clown.

  3. Hello, everyone. Happy fourth of July. I recently started a Nano reef tank utilizing a Fluval Evo 13.5g. The tank has been up for three months, cycled well, and perfect water parameters (tested weekly by a highly trusted lfs and by myself at home) It started with a true percula clownfish and then a black and white occy clownfish. Both have been doing well for the past 2 months, only going through their normal pairing/twitching behaviors. In that time, I've begun to add corals, (a hammer, frogspawn, acan, and trachy brain coral) all of which have been doing amazingly well (brain coral expanding more than that of the LFS, even they were impressed when I showed the photo, and the acan even growing a few heads in a short period of time) Fast forward to 3 days ago. I went to a very popular LFS that specializes in unique corals for the first time. I saw a splatter hammer coral which amazed me. I didn't want to get it since I have a hammer already, but I couldn't resist. I took it home (Wednesday) after having the LFS dip it in RX, and got it into my tank. It immediately opened up, and I was happy with it. This LFS is very popular online and in the region, and I assume they have high inventory turnover due to the amount of sales. I also had my trusted LFS test my water the day before this, and it was again, perfect. On Thursday night, I noticed by black and white occy clown losing his color at night. He was turning pale, he also wasn't eating. It was at night that I noticed it, and just assumed it was their "night" color shifting. His lack of appetite did make me question his health, but I assumed it was stress (possibly from the perc) Friday night, the occy clown passed. He was smaller than the perc. At the time, I did not assume it was any disease. I figured maybe he was stressed from the percula (though they've been together for 1.5 months and had no major problems together, only a little aggression around feeding time) At this time, the percula was eating, but showing white spots on his upper portions. I did nothing at this point, as he was swimming perfectly. This morning (Saturday) the percula passed. Sad morning, as he was my first fish in this tank, and was a very strong swimmer. He would often swim around by fingers whenever I worked in the tank, was very playful, and was picture perfect in coloration/shape. My thoughts, was this brooklynella? Possibly from the splatter hammer added just 3 days prior? Please see below. After researching this disease, it seems it could have came from the hammer coral (I didn't add the LFS water, but I'm sure some did transfer on the coral itself) Right now I plan on doing an 8 week fallow period, and that's it. Other than that, the corals and snails (2 hammers, frog spawn, acan, brain, and 3 nassy and 1 turbo snail(s) are all doing amazing. I assume these can be left in the tank during fallow and won't propagate the disease. Please let me know your thoughts, sorry if the pics aren't the best. The clowns didn't look too terrible in terms of their coat "sliming" but I I guess I'll let you decide. I alluded to the high inventory turn over due to popular LFS's, do you think it's better to go to lower turnover LFS's? would that reduce the possibilities of contracting a disease? I know I need a quarantine tank, but I can't have one set up for quarantining corals (which would literally be the same exact setup I have) The least I can do is buy those cheap AIO 20 dollar petco systems and set it up on an emergency basis (even then its not a 100% survivability) Please let me know if there is any additional actions I must take. I read that just to go fallow for 8 weeks and it'll die off, no new additions (fish, coral, snails, etc). I also will continue feeding a few pellets a day to keep the nitrogen cycle going/snails happy. Thank you. In the corner (black and white occy) sorry hard to see Occy after his passing Percula Percula closeup The culprit?
  4. My Young Mocha Clownfish have Brooklynella and i have done a couple of things to help it but its just getting worse. i used rally reef and kick ich
  5. Hey everyone, for starters I have a 20 gallon high with only 1 fish (Firefish goby). After some time (month and a half) had passed after setting up the tank, me and my girlfriend decided to add an ocellaris clown from the local petco. Yay! All seemed well after acclimation, and introduction. It's worth mentioning I did not quarantine this fish, dip it, or anything besides acclimation. I know what you're going to say, and I now have a 10 gallon quarantine tank setup lol. I had the fish for roughly 4 or 5 days when I noticed a white/faded spot near the tail, it got progressively worse and spread slightly on the other side of the fish. After quarantining and dipping the fish and medications, I lost the clownfish about 3 days later. I know brook and oodinium are relatively quick killers, and it definitely didn't look like ich, and it didn't really resemble velvet. As a matter of fact, it MOST resembled oodinium, but the fish lasted too long I feel like.. Any thoughts?? Water parameters stayed in check the entire time with ammonia staying below 0.5ppm. Thanks in advance! -Connor
  6. Please help! I have a saltwater reef and believe I have an outbreak of brooklynella. The tank started with a royal gramma, azure damsel, and t/r clown. The tank had to move, and during the move I lost the gramma which I assumed was just from the move. About a week later my clown died as well, which I attributed to the move. I added 2 clowns from a reputable store, and shortly after the azure damsel died. Now I recognized that something was wrong, and noticed my clown has something white covering his body which looks a lot like a sunburn peeling/powdery white substance. I think it is brooklynella. The black clown has been shown the white for the week I have had it, and having never owned a black fish, I thought it was just sand kick up and other things that you can see on black fish but not on colored fish. The issue I have is the tank is in college, so there is no possiblity of a QT tank.. I simply can't afford any more room. There are corals in the tank so I can't really treat these fish, so I have no idea what to do. Al that is in there is 2 clowns, blood red shrimp and crabs/snails. I read the only way to get rid of brooklynella is to go fishless, but I have nowhere to put the fish for 6 weeks to treat and kill the parasite in my Display tank. It's awful and this is the last thing I want to do, but I don't know what else can be done except not do anything and if they die, go fishless from that point. Again, a QT tank is impossible with the space I have. What can I do?!?!
