I lost 2 fish =[

I lost my pair of O' Clowns today. They died of ick. They were my first fish. Now I am treating my tank and letting it settle. Also I can't find my talbot damsel. Either He caught the ick and died, or he is hiding. Oh well, There are replacements!

Did you QT your fish before putting them into your main Tank?

How are you treating the tank? The 4 fish you have are going to quickly outgrow your tank. More replacements will only keep problems with your tank.

Let's not forget history here. I'd encourage everyone to review all the prior posts. All the advice and warnings went unheeded. I feel sorry for the fish (past, present and future). Depending on how you're treating the tank you might well do more damage than help.


Here's where we started:

Juvenile Yellow tang : OUT
kole tang : OUT
regal tang : OUT
porcupine puffer : OUT,
niger trigger : QUESTIONABLE,
pair of clowns : OK
damsel : OK
pearlscale butterfly : OK but close
striped blenny : OK
