Ok I guess I will start at the beginning. I have a 30 gal
tank, running a fluval 204 filter, a powerhead 402, all lit up by a 36" orbit power compact with dual daylight and dual actinic bulbs. I began the tank in July with sand and live rock. Since then I have stocked the tank with a bi-color blenny, a blue hippo tang and a female lyretail anthias. Since I want to have a fish and reef tank I have also placed in some coral frags
As a newbie I was having some trouble stabilizing my water values but I believe I am starting to get a hand on it, however I am worried about my tang and Anthias.
I think the tang may have ick. He has a couple of white spots but he also has some raised bumps on his side (his same color kind almost like pimples). He swims around fine and eats like a pig. If my diagnosis is right what is the best thing to do? Should I set up a QT
and treat him with medicine. Or should I let him be and see what happens. I just ordered two cleaner shrimp to help clean him up.
My anthias has black spots on the tips of her fins that kind of look like burn marks. Like the tang this fish shows no signs of lethargy or sickness except the visible markings described.
My tank is a mess. Any advice to keep these fish alive and nurse them back to health would greatly be appreciated.
