Right now I am just treating the water with a general cure and epson salt. He is very unactive, breathing heavily, and won't eat. There is no other sign of illness. He does have a tank mate another clown which is new and been nipping at his tail, they are now separated to prevent further stress. What should I do? here is a video of what he's doing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6E-o392Dx3U
Recently i bought a clown for a nano 8 gallon aquarium i made, but recently i have seen some little spots on him, i have it for 2 days now, ammonia is on 0, nitrate 0, and nitrite 0 too, he is on 24-25 Celsius, and he hasnt eat too much yet, he just eat some frozen brine shrimp, im not that afraid of the eating issue, i had a pair that eat on the 5th day i got them, but im really worried about this spots i saw on him, i try to take a photo, this is the best ones i got. Im new to the hobby, i just got one 20 gallon FOWLR tank with 2 clowns and a firefish, and i didnt have these issues with them. Thank you in advance for the help 😞
Hi all! I have a major caulerpa infestation going on in my tank now. I have some time off for Thanksgiving I two weeks and I was hoping to take care of it then. I was hoping you guys could answer some of my questions and take a peak at my game plan. Game Plan: 1. Remove all delicate corals/inverts from rick. 2. Remove rock from tank and place in sterile bucket. 3. Spray rock with peroxide using a spray bottle. 4. Remove as much caulerpa as possible from the rock. 5. Place rock back into tank. Questions: 1. I have to move my RFA's and BTA's from the rocks, right? Is there a container I should place them in temporarily while their rock is being cleaned and them put them back on it? 2. I have a few corals that are growing directly onto the rock. It's just zoas, plays, and a sinularia. Will they be alright with the peroxide? 3. If I remove a substantial amount of caulerpa, there should be a nutrient spike, right? How should I counteract this? Vinegar dosing? Thanks, everyone! I plan on making a thread that documents this process. -Nick
