Friend of mine setup a 29bio cube not that long ago. Maybe 2 months ago. He's got about 25lbs of live rock and only had the tank cycle for a week or so because the used car salesman-like lfs
we live by told him it was safe to add live stock then. IMO
a week isn't nearly long enough to get a good feel for how the tank runs and whatnot.
He can't seem to get the temp down.....consistently around 83.
He added coral (zoas, shrooms
, acans,, and a kenya tree) and against my advice, he started adding fish after about 2 weeks. He dropped a flame angel, 2 clowns and a green mandarin. Yes....as f'in crazy as it is to put a green mandarin in a 29g bio cube that's 2 months old....he did.
Well he didn't qt any fish and the flame angel had white spots within a week. Flame angel died on Saturday
. Then the mandarin and one of the clowns died Sunday evening. Now his last clown has it...
My question is....
Does ich kill that fast?? I know it's brutal, but I never thought it would spread and kill that fast. Could it have been the 83 degree temp that killed them?
Your input is appreciated.
