Well my plague of bad luck with fish continues...... some of you may have read my post a few weeks back bout getting a vlamingi tang. Well I had in in a 25-30g rubbermaid contanter. I had a small whisper filter and a small marineland filter on the container. The biowheel was froma cycled tank and I had a sock of ceramiic rings that were in a cycled tank. Everything was great for 2 and half weeks. The fish was eating flakes soaked in vitamins and nori. I regularly test for amonia/nitrie and do water changes whenver amonia becomes visible. Well yesterday the fish wasn't interested in food so I tested the water and amonia was .1 or less and no visible nitrite so I figure I'll do a 7g water change anyway. BTW
all the water is taken from my 110g tank. This morningI wake up to find the fish dead
No visible signs of disease or parasites...... I"m so frustrated at this point I think I'm done buying fish. Within the past several weeks I"ve more problems with fish as well:
6 ilne wrasse in QT
for 5 weeks. Eating acting normal, introduce tomy 110, saw him that night and never again.
Filamanted flasher wrasse, in QT
for 5+ weeks, treated w/ nitrofurzone becasue of white fuzzy patch. Left him in QT
anther 2 weeks to make sure he was ok. Introduced to my 110g ate and swam around great for 3 days, haven't seen him in 3 days now.
Female lyretail anthias in at for 2 weeks, eating vitamin packed mysis, dies for unknow reasons.
Fire clown and little Cross's damsel in QT
for 5 weeks together. Figured they would be okay to acclimate in the same container to my 110g.....WRONG, fire clown killed and ate half the damsel in the 2 hours or so they were dripping.
All my corals and clams are doing great with the excetion of my 8x10" pacth of xenia that a falling powderhead pretty much destroyed and my stylophora that fell onto one of my gonioporas.
What am I doing wrong here???????
everything in my 110 is doing great which includes
Blue devil damsel
Gold stripe maroon clown
8 various clams
15 or so soft corals
30 or so hard corals
The fish have come from various pet stores so it's not likely I"m getting a bad supply of fish.
