Kick ick is still working on my tank. And it has worked in the past. The fish that I lost was just too bad to quickly. The remainder of the fish in the tank are making a great recovery. I do believe i told the person on their post that in the past it was a small, or not severe, ick breakout . This has however been my first black ick breakout

Thanks for the articles. Will check em out.

Hmmm. I hating anticipation and waiting for people to respond off of Craigslist. Found a 125 reef tank with the whole setup on Craigslist today for 300$. Waiting on a response. If I get it I'm taking the 150lbs of rock and all the corals and transferring it to the 220. Then- whatever is left over my husband can finally have his fowlr. Lol. Aren't I nice???

If I do get this- does anyone know what fish you can house with an octopus? If any? My husband is thinking about this for his (possible) tank but want other fish. He knows his stingray is out of the question cause we can't house another 200+ tank anywhere. Lol.

I know octopus are escape artists. Saw a vid of one going through a half inch hole. And my lfs had 2. One died shortly after receiving. The other one unscrewed a cap on the what was thought escape proof tank and was found dead on the floor the following morning.

Omg. Wow. Lol. Yeah. I'd have a wire mesh on the tank at that point. Lol. But I can't really see anything on the web that can be really housed with it so it may end up as a no go. I'm not gonna waste a 125 on just an octopus. Lol

Octopus dont' live very long and only come out when you are sleeping. What kind of octo does he want? They are really cool though.

There is one at my LFS for like 40$ that he has been eyeing for a week now. I'm not sure what type. But if he got at least a year or two out of him I guess it's not too bad of a price.
