New pics of lil guy in QT... His mouth is opening and closing, mean he's stressed? QT has DT water and I checked levels before putting him in.

He's gonna be fine! Just keep an eye on him, I'm sure he's just getting used to the new home. Do you know how long you're gonna qt him for this time around?

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

Woke up and checked on the clown. He's still alive and very active. I fed him some frozen food, he didn't go for it. But he did swim right up to me, so maybe he's still stressed. Not opening his mouth anymore, so that's a plus. Just so weird not seeing water movement like in my DT... Lol.

My pod numbers in my DT must be pretty high. They are all over my glass this morning... Hawkfish looks awesome, as usual and nem is fully open. Just outta curiosity, should an ORA tank breed fish have to be QTed as long as a wild one? Aren't these fish in a controlled environment? Just curious.

Isn't stress to move from a QT to a DT? Anytime a fish can't breath due to being outta water seems like stress to me... Lol.. And my lfs has that blue mandarin, but says he's never seen it eat frozen food.. Hard to chance that.
