Well nothing big just a little update. All fish are still in treatment and look to be doing well. Blenny seems to have kicked the worms and clowns are looking alot better also. I just put my torch through some rough treatment, it had a few barnacles in it that I just removed after reading it often causes death in the coral head. Now my beautiful torch has big pits in a couple heads, hopefully it can bounce back. Other than that nothing substantial to report. My other corals are all doing great, my frogspawn has at least five new heads growing out, not splitting. All my zoas have multiplied and my candy cane is on the verge of splitting again. My lone peppermint appears to have eaten a couple aiptasia so hopefully it figured out its food and eats the rest. I haven't been feeding the tank so it will get hungry and eat the aiptasia.

Well I took another video log of the tank, at one point I am referring to some snails and totally drew a blank- they are stomatella (I probably spelled that wrong) snails. I also ran some tests while the video uploaded and here are the results:

Calcium @ 460
Alk@ 7
Phosphates @ 0
Nitrates @ 0
Ph @ 7.5

More importantly my hospital tank is sitting at all zeros which was a big concern for me.

On another note, the afflictions that my fish had were internal worms in the blenny and fin rot on the clowns with a suspected case of flukes on the fox face. How long would you all recommend I leave the tank fallow? It's going on 2 weeks and am thinking it is probably best to go a full 8 weeks, input please.

Looks nice man! Glad to see all of the fish doing well! Haha and of course, the sleeping foxface is totally oblivious to everything.

He sure perked up when I fed them after I took the video though lol. The torch is actually looking pretty good now to, hopefully the removal of the barnacles will help. How's your tank doing and your fish? That Betta looks sweet nice fish dude.
