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

is there a reef safe velvet medication that you can try?

if not see if you can put y our corals and shrimp in your cube and treat your 125 with copper and then use heavy metal removers to try and remove all of it once things settle down

what else is there to do if the parasite is floating around, you can try hyposalinity and raising the temp but really how effective is that

parasites die without anything to host. dosing your display is an easy way to nuke a tank.

if need be, remove fish and treat THEM.

But you can't guarantee a "heavy metal remover" will get it out of the silicone. She'll have more deaths on her hands that way: all of her inverts. That's what hospital tanks are for.

I refuse to treat any of my sw tanks with copper. Thats what I have 10g tanks lying around for.

i wouldnt dare take the chance.

So far allthe fish are still looking and acting normal. Technically, all I have are 2 extra fish right now other than the 5 that came over from the 55g.

I just did an battery of water tests, see if anything jumps out at you
amm-0
trite-0
trate-5
ph-8.3
salinity- 1.026
calcium- 500+(never changed color even after depleting syringe)
alk/carbonate-9
phosphates- .50 ( i know really bad, its been plaguing me since day 1)

While my water is far from perfect and needs some work, I don't think it had anything to do with either death.

Anyone have any other thoughts?

thanks

I hope they all stay healthy. I caught my mandarin, she hasn't eaten all day and was hovering in a corner. I don't know what to do with her, QT with crypto pro? So she is in a bucket in the DT floating around for now. I'm hoping everyone stays healthy in your tank!!
