    Dire need of help

    I need some help with this. So Friday I had added 2 fish to my 125g tank, yesterday one of them died and today, my raccoon butterfly had died. I had checked my water before a water change yesterday and my ammonia was high at 5 ml/L, after the water change of 40gs, it went to .25 ml/L. Today my ammonia is back up at 1 - 2 ml/L and I have no idea if that was caused by the now dead raccoon butterfly, over feeding, or my tank is crashing again. I need advice on what I should do and how I should approach this before I lose my other fish and just do a hard restart on my fish tank
  2. My clown has been acting weird for a bit. I can't get him to eat even with garlic. I've tried medicated food for internal parasites but he won't eat it. 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
  3. I can't figure out what this is, I have never added this to my tank or heard of it.

    ID of specific clam

    Hey guys. So last night I went ahead and bought a dicho clam ( what it was posted as ), but I am pretty sure this isn't that type of clam. I'm not really sure its a clam as it looks like a oyster atleast to me based on shell shape. Any help appreciated http://imgur.com/gallery/zv2hn2F

    CLOWNFISH ACTING STRANG HELP!

    Hello everyone! So I have this pair of clownfish but recently they starting to act very strangely. They breath very very fast, they don't swim much, one of them don't eat much. What should I do? Its a 12 liter tank and I have a hang-on-the-back filter for 35 liters and I started aerating it and it has a decent light but it doesn't have any other livestock other than my pair of clowns. The tank has been up for 9 months and I added the livestock at June. Please help. P.S. I live in Japan, Tokyo so most foreign country products won't be available.
  7. I have kept freshwater fish for awhile now, and I would like to start a nano reef tank with basic corals and live rock along with my hopeful stocking of a yellow watchmen goby, a tiger pistol shrimp, one or so fire cleaner shrimp, 2 ocellaris clownfish, and an anemone such as the bubble tip for the clownfish. Is this a good/realistic goal for a beginner to all this? Any general suggestions and advice about these stocking choices would be appreciated, but I am not looking yet for advice related to hardware and equipment. Thank you everyone in advance!
  8. I have all these corals coming in tmr morning and my sand bed isn’t big enough to acclimate and if I do my elegance will sting all the other corals please advise
  9. Yesterday night my clownfish started flashing. There was nothing visible on his skin. I gave him a freshwater dip. I just got home from work today and he’s got a big white something hanging off his face. It almost looks like some sand stuck by his mouth, but it’s definitely stuck on. Quick background on my tank, it’s new (like 2ish months) and all the fish are newish too. I added a cardinalfish a LFS. Then I added the clown who I got from divers den live aquaria. Then I added a second cardinal from a second LFS. I’ve added coral from local stores and that I’ve ordered online. I didn’t quarantine anyone (I know I know I should have). Both cardinalfish are looking and acting totally normal. I gave the clownfish a freshwater bath for 5 minutes last night. I know it was probably too little too late, but I wanted to do something. Nothing visible came off him. It’s my first tank and I didn’t quarantine because I don’t really have the space or money to set up a quarantine tank. WHERE DO I GO FROM HERE?? What’s the cheapest/easiest but still ethical way for me to fix my clown? Aldo let me know if you need any additional info from me.
  10. Hey guys I bought an already established tank (nano reef) in the fluval evo 13.5g. I have 2 questions one more important than the other but wondering on both. so I transported the aquarium with a few inches of water in it and the inhabitants in bags (1 hermit crab, 2 slugs, 2 bubble tip anemone, 1 anemone shrimp, tile of gsp, some zoas, live rock and live sand) the live rock was in a 5g pain with the tanks previous water. I also picked up 2 clownfish and 1 blue damselfish my brother bought me a hammerhead coral. so got home and added the previous water to the tank, then let the bags all float and acclimate. Then made more salt water and checked salinity, all salinities of previous, new and the fishes marine store water similar within .01-.02 of each other. I slowly added the anemones clean up crew etc. I added a bit of the tank water to the fish bags then sat for 5 min or so and then just let them sort of swim out when they were ready. I tried following the directions best I could. so In the tank things look good, the coral is slowly opening one anemone moved completely and the other is ok same spot bit open but closing up maybe because it’s night now? Do they do that? my main concern is that the 2 clown fish are staying primarily in the one top corner. The blue damsel is sort of swimming back and forth from one rock arch to another rock cave and seems fine not going to the top at all. I don’t see anything particularly concerning about the clowns except they are mostly at the top and more in one corner. First question is should I be concerned? I want them to acclimate well and be happy and healthy I’m so paranoid can’t sleep. Is there anything specific I should watch for to catch any warning signs and help? second question I can’t seem to keep the back chamber same level as the main, it’s about an inch or more lower. Is this normal? Am I doing something wrong? Bonus question should I have the pump nozzles aimed more at the anemones and coral or above them, away from them? I feel like I did so much research and now I’m the moment I’m just panicked on night one praying everyone is happy inside! Help 😮
  11. Hi anything helps here, I’ve had my tank setup for almost two years and bought a new zoanthid frag a week ago. The tank parameters are in check and all of the other corals are doing great but a few days ago some of the polyps turned pinkish/white and have not opened since. If anyone has any suggestions to please let me know!
  12. Hey guys I am looking at purchasing a 12g fluval edge in great condition and I am wondering if I can turn it into a nano reef. if so what do I need to add and what can I use? I only want some live rock and anemone(s) And a clown fish or 2. Maybe a small clean up crew and some small corals as I grow but want to keep it minimal so that it is sustainable. I’m just not sure what I need in terms of hardware that the edge doesn’t already have. thanks in advance - pic more for aspiration not mine
  13. So in my 125g tank I have around 8 peppermint shrimp, and a cleaner shrimp. On my cleaner it looks like it has a white moss where its two claws(pincers?) are, and upon looking at the peppermints they have that same white spec/moss thing on them as well. I dont know if its just food that they are eating ( since I feed my shrimp half shelled clams( whatever is left over from my butterfly fish and angels eat )). If it is a moss/mold thing how would one go about removing it without harming the shrimp. Also question on wether cleaner shrimp lose their little whiskers often?( my bottom of the tank has atleast 14 that seem to of fallen off that i mistook for feather dusters )

    Stocking on a 125g tank

    Hey all, so once I get rid of the ich that's plaguing my 125g FoWLR tank, I had wanted to add some new fish into it. Currently there's only 6 fish in the tank ( + 5 shrimps and 2 starfish ). I have Emperor angel Raccoon butterfly Coral beauty angel Foxface rabbitfish 2x tomato clowns about 2 inches big atm. I was considering adding the following but wasn't sure if this was a good idea 1x fairy wrasse 2x pink squirrel fish 1x scopias tang 1x yellow tang 1x hawaiian kole tang And maybe a blue mouth trigger. I should also mention I am about to start doing the triton method for my tank, i have a 500g skimmer, and soon to be a refugium that ill place in my trigger system ( 1st space ), vs doing media like ceramic rings, bio-balls etc. Any and all suggestions will be a huge help.
  15. Hey all. So yesterday ( I would think ) I somehow introduced ick into my 125g saltwater tank. I just noticed it today on my coral beauty and emperor angel ( coral beauty is covered in it, while the emperor has small dots here and there ). My current treatment as I dont have a QT tank atm is kordon herbal Ick-attack and raising my temp up to 84°. About how long does ick normally last on fish during medication periods + high heat?. ( note this tank has shrimps and starfish in it atm and I don't want to dose copper into the tank to ruin my chances of keeping them in the future ). Also what would be some ways I can help the fish out if I feed them twice a day ( all fish eat currently none are refusing to eat etc ). As well as should i remove my filter floss in the tank? I dont know if that removes the chemicals within it and I don't know exactly how long to be using the medication on the tank ( as im sure my raccoon butterfly and foxface probally have ick as well ). The only thing is I have to turn my skimmer off so if theirs anything else you can suggest to me please let me know

    Hurt Yellow Watchman Goby

    Help, I recently got a Yellow Watchman Goby and it got into a fight with a hermit crab when it was trying to drag the hermit crab into its home. Its mouth is torn in halve and he has a bit of a red spot by his face. Is this going to cause an infection and will I have to go to my fish store to get anything? Thanks.
  17. Wondering what shy, colorful, and or personable fish I can keep in a 30. I’ve read a pretty extensive article covering just about everything I can think of, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have a bunch to learn! Just assume I know the Uber basics, as I’m sure I’m missing something. I know because I’m posting this. Thanks in advance, -milex

    Leopard wrasse care

    Hi all. ive been trying to plan fish for my 32 gal bio cube. I think a leopard wrasse would be awesome but some places say they’re really hard to care for. Why is that? Do they eat pellet/flake food or need live pods? Also some places say they’re listed as difficult because they struggle to survive shipping. Are they hardy once acclimated?
  19. I've finally got my 10g saltwater tank set up and I plan on getting a pair of clownfish and I've seen conflicting statements on if other fish are possible Also if anyone sees this what inverts yall would recomend I'm very excited about starting saltwater
  20. He freaked out and swam right into it for a second, got stung and swam away. He seems to be fine swimming around, but is stressed. he is around 2 3/4 inches. Any experiences like this for anyone? Any advice or tips to make sure he is okay? Thank you.
  21. Hello everyone, Was hoping everyone could provide me with some tips and suggestions on a new 10 gallon build I want to do. Right now here is my plan: Tank: UNS 60S shallow aquarium (24x14x7) Light: Kessil A80 Rock: Stax and marco rock Heres where I need help. I’m stuck between filtration options. I would like to build a sump, but have never owned a tank with one, and don’t even know where to begin with overflows/drilling/plumbing let alone building the sump itself. Other things I am considering is using a canister filter and cleaning it often, or just an AC. I just love the clean look of this tank, and would like to be able to keep the filtration, heater and ato out of the view area if possible. Would like to keep the tank as close to looking “empty” looking as possible. I also would like a solution that won’t kill my wallet, however I know this hobby and am expecting it to at least get a beating. My stocking plan: bit of LPS/Softies 1 fish (either Azure Damsel OR a pygmy angel) 1 blood red fire shrimp I am attaching a picture of what the tank looks like, and the second picture is the aqua scape I want to follow. I basically want a shallow lagoon look, with lots of open sand areas. Essentially what I am asking is what would you guys do with this tank? How would you filter it? Any suggestions will be appreciated and the more detailed the better! thanks in advance!!
  22. Hi there guys! I hear this group is very helpful and I definitely could use some help. Testing parameters: 0.0 ammonia 0.0 nitrites 0.1 nitrates 7.6 dkh 420 calcium 0.15 phos 1350 mag 1.025 salinity My clownfish has been swimming around and laying at the bottom. It’s like his back half doesn’t want to swim. He can’t go up even with the flow turned off. He tries to eat. White stringy poop. I dosed prazipro and it doesn’t seem to be helping. This has been happening since Thursday night. The first video is of last night. The video in the breeder box was about a two days ago when I was trying to feed him and made sure he wasn’t picked on. That didn’t help. When I released him back into the DT he seemed less stressed so I left him be. I also have tried feeding hexsheild and he doesnt seem to take that - but he will go after baby brine shrimp since they swim in front of his face. I'm at such a loss. I ordered Seachem Focus, Metro, and Kana but that wont arrive until friday. Their diet is: TDO Chromaboost Live baby brine shrimp Frozen mysis So in total so far I have done: Dosed prazipro on Friday June 12, 2020 Attempted to feed Hex Sheild Did a freshwater bath / epsom salt bath What can I do? Videos are below:

    Clownfish Skinny

    I got a new pair about a few weeks ago. Everything was going good. Both of them happy and moving great. But I started to notice the male becoming skinny, not moving as much, and seems to always be hungry. I give them mysis shrimp daily and some omega one pellets. I switched over to some brine shrimp and still no luck! I was thinking maybe it's mouth is too small so I cut all the food in small pieces. However, now he seems uninterested in everything. Really getting worried and even asked for help at LFS and they told me he'll eventually eat it but it's really concerning now. Any advice? Female is perfectly fine.
