I'm waiting on a used 20g or so tank with stand from the inlaws that I will use as a QT since I think a 10g will be too small. I also ruled out using my 55g as a QT, well I think I did anyways. Life would be ALOT easier if I just used that tank. LOL
I don't understand,I thought the tank in question was a used tank per your very first post.

Yeah, the tank and stand are the only used things. Everything else was new. Oh, and the LR was moved from my other tanks to add up to the 200lbs or so I have now.

The tank hadn't been used in months though and was thoroughly cleaned out several times. It also was water tested for about 2 weeks too.

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

Did you ever read back through wolf to see what happened to my tank? I lost my ORA clowns. :-( I'm really sad about that. And most of my other fish too

I have the yellow tang, a pink spotted watchman goby and a lawnmower blenny left.

It was just horrible.

Yeah, it seems the blue tang came in sick and took out the tank. I lost the ora clowns, a royal gramma, the kole tang, the blue tang and the anthias.

Do you remember when I killed my candycane goby in my cube? Well, LOL, he is in the 125 now and still alive. Just saw him yesterday. lol you were right abotu him.

So far. The last ones to die were the clowns about a week ago. Whatever it is it kills the fish in like 24 hours. Each fish died within a day of each other. Really weird. But the last 3 look fine. The symptoms are stopping eating and then they hide really well. Then within 24 hrs the fish would die. These last 3 are still eating and not hiding.

I'm hoping I have seen the last of whatever it was. I'm not adding anything for a bit just in case.

Now, how about you? I don't see any fish in your sw tank!! Get on that!

You'll find something really awesome. Youll see. Just don't rush into the fish, you can't have that many so you wanna make your selections very carefully.

You should check out my pico build too, I've added soo much into it. It looks totally awesome! My favorite tank right now. And I ordered FW fish and shrimp from severum mama for my new 20L tank, I'm waiting on the mailman right now to deliver my new babies.

Sorry to flaunt my own threads, but youve been away for awhile i didn't want you to miss anything! LOL
