  1. 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.

    Pshtttt - you will never fill the new tank.

    Sweet! Joist is better...
  4. 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.

  7. 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.

    Looks like the last Idol is done for as well. Perfectly fine yesterday, hanging out in the rockwork this morning. Frustrating fish, these Moorish Idols.
  9. Emperors and other fish pairing attempts

    Number 2 Idol gone. Leaving just one. Of the three, the remaining one is the one I would have given the least odds of surviving. But at least today he looks fat and healthier than he has looked for a long time. Both the other Idols looked great until the day they didn’t, though. uronema is gone. koran’s Eye is healed.
  10. 100 Gallon Rubbermaid

    I sent a PM a few weeks ago and never got a response.
  11. Uronema

    Added chloroquine phosphate to tank last night. Hoping to see improvement soon.
  12. I tend to run carbon when my water gets a yellow hue to it. If you change your water a lot, I wouldn't worry about carbon. If you don't change much water (like me) then I would run it. The Hlle thing is a consideration. Not sure it has been proven or just urban legend, but something to consider
  13. Uronema

    I think it may have come with the Moorish Idol, since it succumbed first and it is a new fish. I am no expert on Uronema either, though it seems I am getting more experience sadly. It seems to have varying symptoms or no symptoms at all the fish just dies. The symptoms it does have seems to vary by fish. Very weird. The fishes may have any all or none of: Red blotches, bruised areas, raised scales, a light film on the fishes body, scratching, sitting in front of the power head, fin blotches and blotches on the eyes. Normally I would treat most of these symptoms with Paraguard and it takes care of it, but not this stuff. Last time I tried paraguard, copper, prazipro, and nothing worked. I read about Uronema and so I tried chloroquine phosphate and it was magic. Trying again this time and hoping for the same results.
