    upgrading

    By tank transfer them I am assuming you are talking about the tank transfer method and not just transfering the fish from your old tank to the new tank. If you do that you will bring ich to your current set up. The parasites need to come off the fish first. A few years ago I had to do the same...

    Unidentified Fish Disease

    Okay guys so this morning I went in and looked at the fish. I decided to stop all meds after the tank transfer. I'm going to get the salinity up and then try Chloroquine Phosphate or formalin. Fish still have very rapid gill movement Water parameters are in check and salinity is currently at...

    Unidentified Fish Disease

    I'm slowly bumping up the salinity. The prazi and hypo isn't changing anything anymore. I did the TTM and I'm going to try Formalin once the salinity is 1.020 No changes, fish look terrible, but are alive.

    Fish Medicine Cabinet

    Metroplex is seachems version of metronidazole in a formula that is meant to be mixed with fish food. Focus is nitrofurantoin, but is also meant to bind other medications to the food so that it doesn't all leak into the tank upon feeding. Both of those are meant to be oral administration.

    Black Clownfish- Possible Brooklynella

    It's a 5 gallon tank.. It's just for QT. They have a matured filter media from my 220 gallon tank which they will be going into in a couple of days. I know it's not a perfect set up, but it will soon be over!

    Black Clownfish- Possible Brooklynella

    Yes, I do have formalin on hand. 35% solution. I guess my thought process is telling me if they had brook they would be dead by now? I get it they could have some immunity, but they in a 5 gallon hex! Not 2.5.. I just feel like that small of a tank they would have been killed by brook by this...

    Black Clownfish- Possible Brooklynella

    Hey guys, I got my Clowns going on a little over a month ago. I did the tank transfer method then had to treat for internal worms as well. Long story short they have a strong appetite and have been eating well for I would say three weeks now. Now the issue that I am concerned about is that I...

    Has anyone had any success using medicated foods?

    I have been wanting to get a hold of this medicine. I could see this working if you got all of the fish in the tank to eat the food and in a level that is considered therapeutic to whatever you are battling. If you find a place that sells this you should let me know! I tried direct contacting...

    Corals coming from uronema marinum

    That's what I was thinking as well, but I read this article. There are a couple more as well that state that Uronema feeds off bacteria in the water color and usually only go after weakened fish. If that is the case going fallow wouldn't elminate this issue? I'm just thinking outloud here...

    Corals coming from uronema marinum

    Hey guys, a guy is quitting the hobby and giving me his corals.. The only issue is that his tank has Uronema Marinum. After knowing how nasty this disease is I don't want it touching my tank :) Does anyone know what I could do during coral QT to get rid of this parasite? Thanks

    Black Clowns Cloudy/Pop Eye

    What are some of the issues you have had with metro just so I can know what to expect? I used general cure at double dose and fish haven't lost appetite once.. So I take it API probably was being safe with their dosage amounts. What metro do you usually use when you treat? By what company?

    Black Clowns Cloudy/Pop Eye

    Update- Humblefish, I owe you!! Thanks.. You solved multiple problems. So, those white specs were actually the medicine not disolving.. I figured that out after the second dosing of them haha. I am thinking my the root of my problem were these transparent looking worm like things. After 24...

    Black Clowns Cloudy/Pop Eye

    Alright, I got that stuff and dosed it this afternoon. Sadly one of the clowns died over night, it looked like the eye popped and it just died. The other one I think is too far gone to make a recovery and the other one is showing no symptoms. I did a double dose of the medicine. The tank flaked...
