I also qt each fish for 2 weeks now, so I can rule out ich and velvet and other parasites. It might not be a full month but it's been working for me so far.

You guys do alot of water changes, is it possible there is something in you ro/di unit or filters? Or if you buy your water maybe try a different water source? Just taking into account everything that could be the source.
I have the same RO/di u recommended. I tested water, even copper tested it, was clean. PH 8.3, mag 1350, cal 450. (after adding salt)... Just beating myself up over it...

Iknow, thats what gave me the idea. lol But you also see blue tangs in 30g tanks too online for show so I will go to my livestock book and see if I can't find the barnacle blenny in there. maybe get more information. I have the barnacles already so it would look neat to have a couple heads poking out. lol
