New tank 65 gallons.

So I ran a test kit and a guy that has helped me set up says I'm in mid cycle. I'm really worried my nem is going to die I rearranged my live rock and base to get better flow and he moved on me this morning and on top of that I'm treating my tank for ich at the moment. I'm stressed out advice please.

Would it be possible to have the nem stay at your lfs until you finish cycling? The ich treatment shouldnt be a concern as I believe its a fish only thing.

If the nem is moving he isnt happy where he was. thast what they do. he might want more flow, more light or something else, otherwise they pretty much stay in one place.

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

good choice. trust me, in the end its better for allparties involved, especially the nem. if you want one in a few months then I;d re assess and think about it then.

A circulation pump is a neccesity so might as well get what you can.

Ya I'm really worried about my two cooed right now with this ich problem. I'm treating them with ich attack two of my other fish don't have it. I also put 10 snails and hermits in yesterday to get ready for my algea bloom. I'm stressing hardcore over this stuff

You have two clowns in a cycling tank? anyway to have them hodlthem too at the lfs until your cycle is complete? Also, do you have your own test kit, like an api saltwater master kit? If you have fish int here you really really need to know the parameters every day so if you have any ammonia you can do a water change. Same with nitrites. Any signs of these and youre fish are in jeopardy unless you do a water change

Yes I have one and ran all my test and everything is good. No problems there. They have been in there for about a week now.
