My reefcleaners shipment got here today and man you guys weren't kidding when you said they send a ton of stuff. It's really hot out there, and I got them right when they came, but the water was still really warm, but it looks like most of the CUC got here in good shape. Here are some pics.

Cool! I'm ordering the CUC for my future biocube from them. Just got my upgrade from LA (15 more snails, 10 more hermits, and a cleaner shrimp) for my 90 gallon.

Good choice. I couldn't be happier with them. I emailed the company after I placed the order to ask about shipping and the owner got back to me right away. Really nice guy.

I just googled Hagerstown and if it's the one in Maryland then I'm nowhere near you lol.

I'm down in Miami, dealing with the blistering heat.

Ah the beauty of using a QT. It would appear as if both my clowns have contracted a case of ick. Hardly noticeable, but I've faced this scourge before (in freshwater). The white spots are much smaller than I'm used to seeing though, they're sugar sized rather than salt sized. I'm just really glad I'm seeing it in my QT and not in my display tank!

So what's the recommended treatment? I've got Rid-Ich+ on hand (a formaldehyde/malachite green solution). Should I use that? Raise temps? I know how to treat ick in freshwater, but never had to do it in SW. Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Patterson, go to the articles section of this site and under saltwater I think there is a discussion on how to treat it. From what I have gathered, you can do a copper treatment or lower the salinity. I have not had to deal with it (yet) so I can't say which is better but it appears most people choose to lower that salinity. Especially since they are already in the QT. Good luck.
