I'm afraid I jumped the gun on this one a bit because of the price......Theres also a small chip of glass missing from a corner which I didn't see til I was unloading it. :-(

Pictures below, any input or opinions on this issue please post!

It's been two weeks since I got my blue tang and put him into qt. He hasn't shown any signs of ich, stress or anything else. other than him sleeping in his side under a rock he has been a perfect fish, a little shy but happy and healthy. He also never lost his bright blue color which I gather is something that happens to tanhs when they get stressed.

When do you think I can move him over? I wanted to order a set of blue reef chromis next so I would want the tang out of the qt just in case the chromis have something.

Is two weeks enough? I've spoken to some veryhighly regarded members and some don't even qt! I know alot of people will qt for a month of longer but in my case is that necessary? The 125g has been stable since the deaths a few months ago, none of the fish have exhibited any issues or stress.

I'm just kinda sad watching the blue swim around all by himself all the time, I think he needs company.

Would moving him over this weekend sound ok?

That is what I would do. My blue hippo sleeps sideways under a rock also.

I'll 2nd it As long as it's not showing signs of stress it should be ok Most times just shipping then moving them from box to tank causes enough stress to show any problems
