    And it continues... 300DD In-wall Build

    Looking good, Eric. Nice fishes. I also like the rockwork. Glad to see water in that thing!

    Nice to see your tank coming to life. Also looking for the same from Eric.

    Kirk’s 350-ish build

    Kirk - my tank was cloudy for months. I tried many things, including a massive water change, and a UV and that did not do the trick. The only thing that worked that I could find was a diatom filter. After using the diatom filter religiously for a week or two, my water was very clear for quite a while. It has become cloudy again though. I ran the diatom filter for a few days but not long enough to clean it up. I am hoping if I leave it alone, it will eventually subside after it consumes whatever nutrients it is living on, but if it doesn't clear up in the next few months I will go back to work with the diatom filter. Sorry to hear about all your troubles. I am sure it will turn around for you soon. I will say that I believe that my troubles began when battling uronema. I wiped that out with chloroquine phosphate. But I also think it killed the algae that was living in the tank. Which put nutrients in the tank. So a bacterial or other bloom occurred, which I could not get rid of except by the diatom filter. I had another outbreak of uronema a short while ago, and repeated the whole mess, though to a lesser extent this time..

    Mistakes in Reefing

    Eric has been teasing us with this tank since 2013. I think he even put water in it for a day once. Purely a tease, I tell ya! If I had a 300 DD, it would be filled as quickly as humanly possible.

    Fin Rot?

    I responded to you on facebook... I believe you either have brooklynella or uronema. Fin rot will not kill your fish that fast.

    Emperors and other fish pairing attempts

    Yeah, not the outcome I was hoping for. They all seemed fine, no signs of disease. They were all eating, though pretty much only eating Nori. Then suddenly, within hours, went from fine to dead. I wanted some that were caught in Hawaii, and asked for that when I ordered them. But I found out these were not from Hawaii. I bought them anyway after watching them in the store for about a month. I think it makes a big difference. If I decide to try again, I will need to be sure that they come from Hawaii. It is all about collection techniques and shipping with these guys, I am convinced. My theory with fish that are seemingly fine one day and die the next is that they are caught with cyanide. They don't use cyanide in Hawaii. Its a theory though. Hard to know what has happened to a fish before it gets to the LFS. And I have seen fish look good to great for months before suddenly dying, again my theory is due to cyanide. Blonde Nasos are another fish where I have seen this happen over and over. I used to chalk it up to being just one of those things, but I have been doing this long enough now that I think it is really due to cyanide. I thought the practice had gone away, but I now think it is still going strong.
