I have my a/c on now, lol, its still hot down here and its supposed to be winter! We just missed a storm coming into Philadelphia too so I'm glad we are back!

What are you thinking of adding next? And when?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Good question! I always think of adding a Firefish, or maybe a Goby. I could always get Mr. Black Ice a friend too to make a pair. As for adding, I'm thinking probably next week.

This one is going okay so far! My first fish did have a few ich spots for a few days, but after chatting with some members on here and thinking, I decided that I wanted to go the route of "building up the fish's immune system against it" as opposed to eradicating it. I should be getting a second fish soon too! I have had my Black Ice Clown now since early January! Thanks for asking!

How are you building up their immune system?

I am building it up by good husbandry, keeping a healthy environment, etc. (Keeping up on PWCs, choosing appropriate tank mates)

So far, everything has been okay, and I haven't seen a spot of ich in more than two months.

This process works and is the most natural. My tang fought off ich and it hasn't returned in months.

I purchased a new fish today! A Purple Firefish! He seems very healthy, but is hiding in a little cave. Fortunately, I believe this is somewhat natural behavior for them, especially since he is new. I will be sure to post pictures when he finally comes out, lol.

He'll come out eventually. I loved my purple firefish. He was quite the little swimmer and explorer and they're know for not being too active. Too bad he went carpet surfing though.
