    Velvet?

    I got mine from ebay, two different times. I had no problems. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Chloroquine-Phosphate-Treats-marine-ich-velvet-brook-AQUARIUM-USE-ONLY/231636780028

    Prazi will take care of flukes. Choroquine Phosphate will take care of uronema, brook, ick. Copper is another alternative, but I have used copper on uronema and it was ineffective where CP was effective. Not sure that antibiotics will help unless the disease is bacterial, which brook, velvet, ich and uronema are not (they are caused by protozoans). Going fallow works for ich. I am not sure how it will work for brook or uronema

    Hopefully that will knock it out. Good luck! Brook is pretty common with clowns unfortunately. Uronema also seems to be common these days. Quarantine new fish is a good way to go, especially if you have a reef tank.

    Maybe Uronema. Choroquine Phosphate will kill it. But, not reef-safe. For more information search "Chloroquine Phosphate reef" I have used it several times. It cured some fish that I thought were lost causes. One butterfly I thought was dead, but has recovered fully due to CP. Uronema has been a recent issue at least for me. Never heard of it or saw it in my previous 43 years of keeping marine fish, but I have had it 2-3 times in the past year or two.

    If my tank parameters get way out of whack, sometimes the best thing is to change water with new water you know is good, and start from there. It is hard to get things back in balance if they get way out of balance. Not being critical, just a suggestion. I call a massive water change a "reset button" Harder to do with large tanks, but on small tanks it is the way to go. Your tank is in the size range where I would consider a total water change and start the dosing or calcium reactor again after that.

    Jensen - If there is relatively no coral in your tank, I am surprised that you should need to dose at all. Perhaps you are overdosing?

    Nice to hear. My tank(s) have mostly been on cruise control also. I lost my 8-yr old Moorish Idol. I bought three more, but none made it past a couple of months.Then I have had a couple of algae blooms that just wouldn't go away so it was nearly impossible to see into the tank for months. The fish I had survived that and I finally got it cleared up. I even got two new fish last week and they are doing great. Overall my tank is doing pretty well. But I am still basically in cruise control, and don't tend to post very much these days. I basically have very little to say. Best of luck setting the tank back up. I know it will be awesome. My current fish list in the 240 gallon is: Koran Angel, Annularis Angel, Queen Angel, Rock Beauty, Double Saddle Butterfly, Reef Butterfly, Jacknife, Porcupine Puffer, Royal Gramma, Powder Blue Tang. Then I have a 10 gallon tank with an Ocellaris clown and a Percula clown, plus some Grandis Palys.

    John - you are still alive? Nice to hear from you!

    Forums vs Social Media

    I still like the forums. However, I have reached a point where my tank is relatively in autopilot. I spend next to nothing on it except food or if some issue arises. I find that most of the posts are selling posts, either tanks being shut down, or someone selling equipment or livestock. Since I am not much in the market, I don't really look at those threads. Since Photobucket messed with everyone, I also find it to be a pain to post pictures, so I don't do that either. Additionally, I have been in the hobby for 44 years now, and there aren't many situations that I have questions about anymore. So my presence here is much reduced. That being said, I'd rather look at the Forum than the Facebook page.

    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.
