I'm trying to find a powerhead rated for 10 gallons and I can't. Do they make them that small

Ok I just got my first quarantine tank resident, a flame hawkfish. He is acting well but not eating. How often do you feed when they are in quarantine? And how often do you change the water?

Just got home and found out terrible news. hawkfish is on his side breathing rapidly and not swimming. Any ideas of how to save him? or is he a goner??

ok so hawkfish is dead but LFS gave me another for dirt cheap. I acclimated him and put him directly into my display tank and he is doing well (knock on wood). I found the killer of my hawkfish in the quarantine though...ammonia was .5mg/L. How did this happen? about an hour before i got the fish i put a sponge that had been cycling in my main tank for a month into the quarantine. Did the sponge cause the ammonia spike?

how long was the sponge out of water? Sounds like a minicycle of some sort. Even though your putting something with established bacteria, you should check if it creates a minicycle

It was out for maybe 30 seconds top. Just enough to put the sponge on the little mount thing for the sponge filter. Would that be enough to cause a spike?

the ammonia spike could had been from the hawkfish. When i had a fish die in my 36g, it was dead no more than 3 hours and my hermit barely started eating it, but it released quite a bit of ammonia because my nitrate ended up going up ~10ppm

Maybe it was the fish that caused the spike then. It's weird that the fish died then, water was perfect before the fish. I guess it was from stress. I'm gonna get this water back to normal, then put another sponge in and see if the sponge was the culprit. Pretty unfortunate first experience with a quarantine tank
