He's in and all is well...

After 8 long weeks in QT, getting through hypo (for ich) and an extra week of good measure, the fish (Purple Tang) is now in my main. There was an initial bit of posturing but now they look like long lost pals. I'm amazed at the size difference. I knew the purple was a lot smaller but seeing them next to each other is a real eye opener.



It's been a long journey and I couldn't have done it with out Steve-S & QuarryShark! Thanks, Gang!

Phyl, I am so glad to see that yours made it. We may have to try one of these instead of the regals. He is gorgeous and I know you are proud of him. Good work girl.

Gratz, thats a really nice purple tang. They are like puppies, so cute and then one day they are 6" across LoL so I wouldn't worry about the size, you obviously know what to feed tangs and it'll catch up in no time!

My purple tang didn't make it into my main with ich. I purchased him and after a week or so in QT he started showing spots. I treated him there before he hit my main so no my main has not had to go fallow. Sorry to hear about your flame angel. That doesn't sound good with his gills. Is your ammo in check?

Thanks all for the compliments. Brisc0 I LMAO on the puppy comment. That's certainly how I feel about my yellow. I had no idea he'd gotten so big!
