Molting is good. mean the elements that the shrimp need are present. I believe its idodine for molting so your salt mix contains enough of that.

Good example why you don't need to dose that particular chemical, alot of people just dose it just in case.

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

Well, I bought the titanium heater huma recommended. IDK, but I think my fish may have ich... I can't see why else they died. Of course I don't see any of the signs of ich... No heavy breathing, white spots, and they are eating. Idk, spraying the board with random shots and hoping for the best. No more deaths, but trying to prevent any others too. The stuff I bought is reef safe, so if I can't catch the guys, I'll treat in the DT.

Nothing confirmed.... Just a shot in the dark... I don't see any heavy breathing or white spots.

I am a bit confused. Thought you had a broken heater that was introducing stray voltage into the system which was killing the fish. Why do you now think you have ich? If in fact you have ich, is it a good idea to add another fish? Sure wouldn't want to see you lose another one.

Came home and found a pajama cardinal gone. Investigated it. No white dots, gills looked clean... This is crazy... Other pajama is swimming around fine... Thought the foxface was a goner, but he was just eating the algae... Lol.... I am have no luck... All the inverts are good, nem is moving because I changed the flow, but he's still good... Even my corals are flourishing... Patience I guess... Need to slow down a bit...

Man, I feel for you. I think you are right about the patience. Hate to see you going through all this.
