    Need Help Identifying Gem Tang Behavior/Sickness

    Is he still breathing heavily? If so, this suggests that a possible pathogen (usually a parasite or worm) is afflicting the fish's gills. I don't think it's anything environmental since you reported that all your other fish seem fine. Fish diseases can take awhile to spread from fish to fish.

    I agree (y) While sometimes Leopard Wrasses will accept frozen mysis, brine, etc. their primary staple is pods. And there's a good chance the fish will starve in just a 30 gallon before it ever transitions to accepting prepared foods.

    Operculum recession on tang

    Has the fish been exposed to ammonia or some other toxin which has damaged the gills? The first thing I would do is give this fish a 30 minute methylene blue bath: Methylene Blue It might also be worthwhile to place him in a sterile QT with methylene blue at 1/2 dosage (1 ml per 2 gallons of...

    Is Zero Ammonia Really Possible?

    I think many systems experience brief spikes of very low ammonia, before it gets converted to nitrite --> nitrate

    Hello, Geezer coming back to this forum. Paul B

    Pretty cool looking too. Just a long PVC pipe with a collection cup on top of it. I’m assuming you have an air stone at the bottom of it.
