No I don't have a qt tank. And he said I would just order from him and when he gets the shipment I go pick it up so basically I would be getting it straight from the supplier

Yeah well I don't have anything to use as a qt tank. :-( I'm starting to think I shouldn't have bought this thing

For quarantine you can transfer your HOB filter over to a 10 gallon tank while the new arrivals are in it. Then if the fish stay healthy for about two weeks you can move the fish and filter back to the display tank and drain and store the 10 gallon. They're cheap to pick up. I know it's a pain though. You could always skip the quarantine tank for your first fish (many do) but it's near impossible to catch a fish from a tank with rock once it's in.

Don't get discouraged, your doing GREAT!! You'll be ok. We all hit little bumps on the road in this hobby. I wanted to throw my tank out the window when I was doing a fish in cycle on a heavily stocked cichlid tank 55 gallon. Then I had columnaris and really wanted to call it quits.

BUT awesome members here helped me through it all! People I didn't even know! Now were all like family! And your part of that family!!!

So stay strong and keep doing what your doing! Ask questions and keep up the GREAT work!!

Was that corny? lol

Lol. I made it worse go figure. I broke a fin on the powerhead housing and figured I would glue it and when I pulled it out of the tank a, bunch of stuck came out of it. Looks like the dead kinda hairy stuff on the dead rock apparently it was sick to it. Oh well I'm gonna let just the hob run for a bit and try to filter it out. I've got 2 scrubby pads stuffed in it as a filter for now. Don't see the point in wasting a carbon filter. I used super glue gel

Google fanworm. Could be that. If it is you'll love it. Also google aptasia. If it's that you'll be sad. lol

Are you running your lights? If so how many hours a day?
