Sad day. My fish only salt tank melted down due to Brooklynella. The only survivor was the camel shrimp.
I have set up the isolation tank to temporarily house the shrimp until I can restart the main tank. the specs are:
20 gallon glass rectangle set up for 9 months
Penguin 125 hang on back with bio-wheel
undergravel filter with shallow (3") aragonite sand bed
Red Sea test kit
High (f'ing nondescript scale)
No meds in the tank ever
Specific Gravity 1.022
What is the best way to deal with this fish scourge? I would like to populate the tank with 15 lbs live rock (if I can talk the wife into it), 2 clowns (percula or ocellus), 1 yellow tail blue damsel, and a citroen (sp?) goby or fairy basslet. Should I:
Bleach the tank
fresh water shock the tank for about a week
raise the temp to over 90 deg F for a week
or let it lay fallow for a month (on week into the month already)?
