Also, I wanted to ask about my rock. By the looks of it, it looks like there is aiptasia on it. Do you guys think that it is worth saving it? Granted I did move some of the rock (not sure if there is aiptasia on these pieces) to the 125g.

Yes! Just squirt it with boiling lemon water. That works like a charm and is cheap if you have lemon juice in the house

Thanks! Do I need to wash the rock off after I squirt the aiptasia with boiling lemon water? And approximately how much lemon juice should i add to the water? Thanks!

Here is another question about ich.

Does it die when it has dried out? If not, how long can it live dried out? Thanks.

For killing the apastia I would shut down all the pumps and circulation and inject it in the center of the anemone. I use aipastia X which is really good, it even comes with syringes so you can really get at the buggers.

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

There is no guarantee that file fish would eat it . Even peppermint shrimp are hit and miss. No offense but IMO it's not good advice. You don't buy fish to take care of something that a little Apastasia x can take care off. It's like buying a Pleco when you can just scrape algae yourself.

Some Thoughts for Tanks

So lately I have been a little nervous about ich, and really don't wait it to be a huge deal if I get it again. The thought came to my mind that I could use the 125g as a Fish-Only tank, and the 55g as a full-blown reef with no fish. That way, if ich somehow appeared again, I could treat in the DT. It would be like a big QT, but I wouldn't have to remove the fish. The 125g would just be a simple Fish-Only. I was even thinking of finding a way to use my new 25g lights for my 55g to help with some great coral growth in there.

I know that this sounds kind of crazy, but the thought came to mind so I figured I would share.

Thanks so much for following!
