    I dosed once at 40mg/gallon, no redosing. One & done. After 30 days I started doing WCs to take the med out. Remember, no lights, no UV, no carbon during the 30 day treatment. Good luck!

    Bta and coral in a tank

    I would wait at least 6 months (for your tank to mature) after your cycle finishes and then only get one. GBTA can get pretty large, fairly quickly. Try to create a "buffer zone" around your GBTA, as they tend to shift around a little sometimes. The few times mine has made a "big move" has...

    Treating thoughts

    If he was in a tank with fish that showed signs of Ich, you have to just assume he is infected as well. Wrasses have thick mucus coats, so they oftentimes don't seem to get Ich on their skin. But Ich can also invade the gills, so you might not even be seeing it. I recently QT'd two wrasses for...

    Help with power head???

    Sounds like a cracked shaft to me. What brand of powerhead is it? If it's a Hydor Koralia, check out this thread I posted: http://www.reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?t=2183061

    Bangaii with an eye problem (only one eye) with picture. Not sure what to do

    I would start by treating with Epsom salt. One table spoon per 5 gallons. This will ease the swelling and help heal the eye if this is due to injury. If not, it will raise your magnesium a little. Either way, it's win-win. Further reading: http://www.wetwebmedia.com/popeyefaqs.htm...

    End of Cycle Question

    How many times have you tested, and gotten 0 ammonia & nitrites? Sometimes you can get lulled into thinking that your cycle is 100% complete by one or two readings.

    Bangaii with an eye problem (only one eye) with picture. Not sure what to do

    Looks like a growth or infection to me, but an injury is not completely out of the question either. Is it bulging at all? Like it's swollen?

    Treating thoughts

    So, if I'm understanding you correctly, the wrasse will be QT'd separately from all the other fish and treated with copper. Sounds like a good plan to me.

    Hermit Crab Damaged My Dragon Soul Brain

    IMO, hermits are more trouble than they're worth. Sure they're interesting to watch, and can clean the little nooks & crannies that snails can't reach. But then they start murdering your snails, and you go & read a post like this..... The only crab I would keep in my DT is a small emerald. And...

    Marine Velvet Wiped Out My Tank!!

    Since all your fish have died, whatever disease killed them is now a moot point. You need to leave your tank fallow (fishless) for 9-10 weeks, to starve out whatever did this. Fish parasites cannot survive indefinitely without a fish host to feed on. In the meantime, just add a pinch of flake...

    ich in my reef aquarium

    OK, so a 4" YT, 2-2" clowns, and 2-cardinals. The good news is Petco is still doing their $1/gal sale right now. I would QT them all in at least a 20L (29 or 30 would be better - 40 breeder would be awesome!) I would treat them w/Cupramine for 4 weeks at 0.35 mg/L. All should be fine in that...

    I don't know what to tell you about your coral, but I do know that the only good crab is a dead crab! :angryfire:
