His coloring looked ok, and I didn't see any spots or anything, but now that he is in the 30 gallon can I can't see him good

There is no light on the can he is in, and it's in a dim area, how long should I leave him in there

How long do I need to leave a biowheel power filter on the main tank for it to pick up enough bacteria for the qt?

Just keep an eye on him until he calms down and resumes normal behavior. In terms of the bi-wheel, im not sure id think a few weeks

I don't think normal behavior is in his future, he is bent over, and face down, I would guess he is not going to make it.

I know its really crappy but he may pull through. They do have a natural immune system. Sometimes its a matter of letting him take care of him self

We will see what happens, I hope he makes it he was my favorite he would come right up and eat from my hand, and was always right in your face when you went to look at the tank!

Naso tang is dead, I lost my first fish. Now I am going to set up a qt should I put the bio filter on the qt then cycle it. Or should I just put the bio filter on my dt for a few weeks, and then set up qt. Also is my water from a water change on my dt ok to use in qt, or should I start with new?
