    Sorry it took so long to get back. I have tried to source Chlorinique Phosphate with no luck. Local vets are very reluctant to just write a script for things these days. Even with the documentation about the diseases it treats and pics. Any idea where I can get my hands on some? I have read that a few folks on other forums have had crappy results from overseas suppliers and eBay sellers with CP.

    Mine is a 120g mixed reef tank. Mostly soft coral as I’m still figuring things out with the hobby. I think going fallow for 80 days and QT observation/treatment is my best option to ensure that all parasites are killed off and fish are disease free upon placement back to my DT. I know all the surviving fish were exposed to what killed the other fish so I think treatment is a definite. Maybe a formalin bath or dip prior to placement into sterile QT. Prazi and/or some other antibiotics. Opinions? BTW, thanks 110reef for your input. Much appreciated.

    Thanks for the reply. I have looked into this a bit since I posted it. I also came up with Uronema and Brooklynela. My black clown has since recovered and no longer shows signs of it. My plans are to go fallow for bout 80 days and treat the fish with antibiotics in QT tank. If they show signs of any issues then I will treat as needed. Seems about the only “safe” way to handle this. This happened bout 6-8 months ago too. Lost a potters angel with same signs. It was pretty upsetting and the black clown showed the same signs as he is now. Any thoughts on my coarse of action?

    Woke this morning to this! My 125 has been stable and running for about 2 years now. I mysteriously lost my lawnmower blenny three days ago, flame angel yesterday and this morning this is what I found. Any ideas? My Niger Trigger, three chromis , spot tail and one clown look fine. My black clown has a slight “haze” on him and all fish are eating like normal and acting like normal except this guy! Nothing has changed in the tank. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
  6. Thanks for the input guys. I am running carbon in a media bag that I dropped into one of my filter socks. It has gotten rid of the mentioned odors and has cleared up my water pretty good as well. I do regular water changes in my tanks (every 3-4 weeks) and have not had any real issues but decided to run carbon from the research I had done on it. Before now, I had only ran it after medications or treatments in my tanks. Being fairly new to the hobby, I am kinda hesitant to just jump in and do what others do without extensive research.
  7. Who all here is running a quarantine tank and what is your quarantine practice? Precautionary treatments, observation periods, etc,etc!!! Thanks in advance for the input.

  12. Anyone here that can offer me some input on running carbon media on a mixed reef tank? Pros and cons? When to run it and when not to? I did search a little on here before deciding to post a new topic. Sorry if this is a noob question as I am still a little “green” in the hobby! 🤪 Thanks in advance for any and all input.
