That's cool. So as stated earlier the clown died and so did my fox face. He wasn't looking so good so I put him in a separate 10 g tank just so when he did die, I didn't go searching for him in the DT.

I noticed ich on my yellow tang. Hes been doing so good and didnt seem stressed at all. Im Going to remove him and temporarily place him in that 10 g that I just emptied about and treat him. Hopefully it's a good turn out he's my favorite. I bought some ich bottle treatment at the store today. It said to put 5 ml for every 10 gallons per day. Continue this for 5 weeks. The hospital tank is small I know but it's all I have right now. I hope he makes it.

That's all for now. Kind of a bummer since I've been trying so hard and now this has been stressing me out

I was over at petsmart today which is where I bought the above bottle and I saw a mesh net it's meant for a breeding basket. The measurements are about 5x5x5. I was wondering if I find a spot to hang it in my tank as silly as it may look depending, what can I put in this thing. I was thinking maybe macro algae or chaeto. Will this be worth it or any benefits? Thanks.

Putting chaeto in there might not look that bad and the look would be the only downside. On the upside your water would have more Oxygen and the chaeto would eat up your nitrates.... Plus idk about your lfs but we give people some in store credit if they bring in a bunch of it.

I just have chaeto in there. I have no room in my sump because my skimmer takes up the whole fuge area. The mesh of the breeder box isnt well ventilated and does collect build up so i had to tip it so that the return can provide flow in it.

so to my knowledge chaeto is just mainly used to soak up and nitrates. Does it need to be trimmed at all or anything like that.

Here's some updated pics. I can use some ids to make sure I got the right stuff but I'm pretty sure. Torch, hammer coral, pulsing Xenia attached to the monti frag, zoas, a type of brain coral, clam. Does everything look healthy ? My bubble just closed when i was cleaning the walls of algae (seems to happen the day after i top off with rodi water.) but he was looking so sexy yesterday
