Ill try my best to explain my situation.
I have a 160 FO
with 2 big cannisters and a protein skimmer. 1 lionfish, a squirel (sp?) 1 damsel (left over from cycling 6months ago), 1 med sized yellow tang and another med sized sailfin tang. The squirel is the lastest entry and that was about 1 month ago. I dont have a QT
Everything was great till friday morning when I noticed almost instantly they were all lazy. I fed them the normal food, lionfish and squirel eat krill, the tangs eat the algae flakes and some formula 2. They eat, but slowly and sluggish. I did notice on the lionfish had a white spot on his eye and that his tailfin was ragged? Well, saturday I wake up and the sailfin tang is dead and he has white spots on him also. Not ich spots though, almost like his skin color changed. I did a water change and started a treatment of "Pimafix" anitfungel treatment (recommended by the LFS
). The yellow tang was alive but he had white eyes, blotchy spots also and his skin was "ripply" around his stomach area. Needless to say he was dead this morning. The squirel, the damsel and the lionfish seem to be ok, but they still have white eyes and are just lying around being sluggish
Whatever happened in this tank was quick and deadly so If anyone can help out Id really appreciate it.
PS, my skimmer is billowing out this cloud of bubbles that make the water hard to see through. This started after the first treatment of meds yesterday. Should I turn it off or let it do its thing??
