Ok, so I've had 3 fish die within the past 3 days...a clown, a bi color angel, and a six line wrasse. They all went from happy and healthy to dead pretty much overnight. I never observed any spots, the only irregular behavior was some rapid breathing from the clown and angel. The speed of deterioration has me thinking clownfish disease. I tested my water quality and took it to the lfs
with the same results. It's all good.
So here are my questions...
Agree with clownfish disease?
If I go to hyposalinity my dt, how will that affect my live rock?
Can parasites affect snails, crabs and shrimp?
If there are no fish in the tank, then the parasite will die without a host, correct? There is no need then to go hypo?
I'm going to set up a ht to try and treat what I have left, do I fill it with freshly mixed saltwater or take established water from the dt?
Thank you for the time it takes to answer. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
