  1. So my 20g tank just finished cycling a few days ago. On Sunday I went and got a pair of clownfish. Monday morning I noticed small white spots on both. Needless to say, i believe it's ich. I didnt QT them (i dont even have a QT tank, but I definitely will in the future), just acclimated and dropped em in. I'm reading about running the tank fallow for 76 days, but my question is what should be my course of action? Is that best with a small tank? I only have a hermit and snail in the tank, no coral yet. Most likely I will have 4-5 total fish, so what would you do??

    What is this on my yellow tang??

    I’ve had my yellow tang for about 4 months and he’s been doing great. We have a kole tang, tomato clown, and two small clownfish and of course our yellow tang. We’ve recently moved out 90 gallon tank from upstairs to downstairs and put all of them in a tank to keep them there until we put them back in the 90. The 90 is all set up and everything is good, but I’ve noticed some extremely small brown spots near my yellow tangs eyes, going down his head. It’s not white, or black so I don’t know what this could be!! If someone could please respond I would greatly appreciate it!!!
  3. So I did a water change yesterday and siphoned our the sand a little. I did my best to make sure sand wasn’t covering any of the coral but missed a spot on the open brain. My cleaner shrimp was on an area of the coral and I saw some sand on the coral so I moved the sand and found a black spot. Did I just ruin my open brain? tried my best to get a pic but the blue lights can be tricky.
  4. I got home today to find my Wyoming White fish with a white speck near its mouth. I sat there and examined the rest of its body to trey to detect any other speck since its mostly white itÂ’s a little hard to tell but it seems that the one near his mouth is the only one. I have another clownfish that shows no signs of ich as well as a yellow watchman goby. I do have a 10 gallon tank but have no equipment for it. Not even a light. At the moment I canÂ’t afford to buy the equipment so my question is, is there a good way to test him without a quarantine tank. What IÂ’m thinking is soaking the fish pallets with garlic and seeing if itÂ’ll ride out on its own with the fish gaining a stronger immune system. I also heard vitamin C would help too but donÂ’t know how people soak the pallets with that, if you can give me some tips on that too I would grately appreciate it. I just tested the water and have been testing frequently and my levels are all fine, I do regular water changes. The clownish is eating very well, as a matter of fact heÂ’s the first to go For the food. He doesnÂ’t seem to be rubbing himself or anything other than the white speck heÂ’s demonstrating normal healthy behavior.  If the garlic doesnÂ’t work I will try to gather the funds for a quarantine tank as soon as I can to treat with copper but donÂ’t know how long that will be. IÂ’ve also been reading about freshwater dips but IÂ’m not sure if theyÂ’re too risky. Does anyone have any experience with that??  Please help with any advice you can give!!!  Â
  5. Hey everyone! I just noticed some "flaking" on my oldest clownfish and i'm really nervous! i dont want to lose her, what does she have?! I have posted a pic so everyone can see. water parameters: ammonia 0 nitrite 0 nitrate 5~ i recently changed salts (if that matters) i did a 20% water change. I was using aqua forest, and now i changed to frits rpm. please help! I really want to act fast in hopes of saving her. Last night, i fed her and she ate no problem. Its only been 1 day that i've seen this flaking of her scales on her (its on her right side). I added some stress guard that i had in hopes of calming her down and healing abit until i can find out what i really need to do! thanks
  6. Hey, noticed a big red pinkish spot on the side of my blenny today. anyone have ideas? How should I treat?
  7. Three months ago I bought some gumdrop Coral Crouchers and I decided this time around to do everything as "right" as I could. I have been Quarantining my fish for the past year. I used my frag tank as the Quarantine site for my Gumdrops as there was live food available to them in there - such as tiny shrimp like things. I figured they would fare a better chance in there with that along with subsidised feeding - I had to train them to eat frozen. So at the end of the month I was considering to add them to display, but when I took them out I noticed small white spots. UH OH! ICH! What I had done was add a couple snails to the tank during their quarantine - without thinking - New lesson learned - quarantine everything. My frag tank does not have the best light so not all corals can do well in there. So I cannot treat that tank with anything (as it is a frag), but after some googling, hyposaline seemed to be okay, if i kept it at 1.009 (I think that was the numbers) So I put the gums into the hospital tank and immediately dropped it to 1.009. They did not have the spots at this time, so I was banking on I left the issue behind in the frag tank. Due to the hypo conditions, I had to seriously feed these guys and well they were still being a bit difficult about accepting frozen. I had to deal with my PH and alk swinging everywhere too. Due to fearing for their lives due to lack of available food at the third week I started to increase the tank from Hypo to display conditions. Ordinarily I would have kept them in the hospital for two weeks to a month after to observe, but I felt like they would starve. I decided to risk it and put them into the display as soon as the parameters matched. That was a month ago - actually about a month and a half. SO far, no one has developed any disease and the gumdrops are still doing okay. Where they hide means I can feed them only once a day - since the corals they hang out in (trumpet and hammer) are full and fluffy during light hours. What I am saying is, Quarantine - and observe, and treat if necessary - preventive treatment is okay too. But I did not bring in the disease into my display. It may be good to also quarantine the inverts as well - if that was the case of the ich getting in on snail shells. This to me was proof that Quarantine and hypo worked and it should be adopted by everyone. Just keep an extra tank, heater, and filter handy.
