It's really not as hard as it seems. As long as you have some solid advice and knowledge you can make it work. I was a freshy girl myself, for many decades, but now I'm a convert i think. LOL

I'm glad you enjoyed the thread. it really was full of a lot of good information that touched on almost every aspect of reefkeeping.
Thanks so much for reading thru it!

Convert.........or..........convict?

@kurtyboh...Careful now, she will get you addicted and you will end up with MTS in no time at all.

I'm happy to report it's been over 2 weeks I believe since the death plaque hit my tank and everything seems fine still. I have the added clowns from the biocube in there now since they were killing my yellow watchman goby.

So we have happy clowns, the happy spotted goby and the lawnmower, oh and the Tang all seemingly doing well.

How long is it between ich infestations? i understand it infects then falls to the sand and then is reborn so to be speak. I wanna see how long til I can cross out ich.

In the same tone, with marine velvet, doesnt it stay active in the water? I didn't think it had a life cycle like ich did. or could the fish in there be immune? And if so will it die off on its own with no fish to kill and infect?

I don't really know much about diseases so any help or links are cool!

Thank You!!

Ultimately if it doesn't have a host it'll starve and die....I'm not 100% sure with velvet, but I know that's the case with ich, only thing with ich is if you wait till night time and turn only your actinics on and take an low upper glance at your fish, you should see the ich spots glowing yellow or green, I know that sometimes ich can form in their gills but you should still be able to spot it with actinic

MTS= multiple tank syndrome

Thanks for the other link leftyfish, I think these were better than the other ones I've seen.

SO, let's ASSUME I had ich kill my fish over 2 weeks ago. There are no signs at all of it, even under blues on any remaining fish. I have also added 2 fish to the tank since. So the parasite could be maturing in the sand correct? And this could take up to 28 days? If it is ich won't my fish become affected within those 28 days? Or shortly thereafter?

I'm trying to rule out ich and just need to understand the time table. If after 28 days of initial "infection" there is no re-occurence then is it safe to assume it wasn't ich?

Also, bad new.....my last cleaner shrimp has gone missing. :-(
BUT BUT BUT I saw a thread just before where someone caught their tang eating and pecking at cleaner shrimp. Anyone think now maybe the pistol shrimp isn't killing them but the tang is?

Thanks so much for everything!
