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

Mine it was clear ich, I tried to put some medication (that don't kill my inverts), all my 6 fishes gone in a week, it was my last add the coral beauty.
I am going to travel in 2 weeks I will think about and then when I will return I think I will restart everything from scratch.......will see.

Thread jack mlanda dont do it just leave your tank fallow for 8 weeks bring the temp up to 80-82 degrees you'll have to wait just as long if you start over and you may still have ICH just feed the inverts and wait it out. QT every thing it's the best we can do to protect our tanks.

Yep, if you'll be gone two weeks that's 2 weeks outta 6 that are done. Then its' only four more weeks and in the meantime you can set up your qt ans get some fish sometime after since they have to be in qt for a few weeks as well.

Thanks folks for your feedback, I will do it.
The QT was already set up, it was just that I never have to use it, until this thing happen.

Well, I did it again. Got myself a new fish. This timeits a diamond back sifting goby. I went to petco for some mysis ahd since they couldnt find the sku for the fish gave it to me for $12. Can't beat that! I will put him in the 125g directly as I'm not sure about the food source in the qt tank.

He's acclimating but I expect to have pictures up in about an hour.

Not too sure I will like all the sand sifting, I heard they do ALOT but I did wanna try one. So now is my chance for only $12. LOL

I'm a sucker for pictures so heres one of him in his accliamtion bucket. Also couldnt resist throwing some in of the blue tang. darn, that fish is quick, I think next time I'll just make a video if him, took like 30 shots to get 2 decent ones. lol

I hope the goby doesnt change my sandscape too too much, I ahve been warned about them. i also hope he gets along with the pink spotted watchman that i have who doesnt sift a single grain of sand ever. LOL
