Wow 8O , myths abound all through this thread. Anyway....

How long have you had the clown and how long after it's addition did the tang show the problem?

Cheers
Steve

The clown has been in for over a month. The tang showed problems at about the 4th week.

I'm so so sorry about your Tang. It's hard to lose a fish like that.

The two main things that come to mind with the symptoms conveyed thus far is either Uronema or Brooklynella. Both typically problematic and will result in death if untreated.

Do/did any of the fish exhibit red lesions/ulcerated area's of the skin, scales standing on end or white blotchy area's on the skin?

Cheers
Steve

Care to share where you got that little tidbit and what hyposalinity has to do with the trophont?

Cheers

There was no lesions on the skin or any open skin of any kind. There seemed to be semi-clear blocthches on the skin more like slime hanging off in some areas.

hypo from what I have read helps 90% of the time, I am also interested in where the other information came from.

I also agree with Rev, dont use copper in main!

Also, on a side note... a 3 month old tank with an anenome already? wow kinda fast eh? good luck with it


also, you mention in another post that your turbo's keep dieing...

Can you please describe the QT of the fish you have/had and how long you had them in QT and main before you started having issues?

Hyposalinity won't have any effect on the problem being discussed here. It has been misidentified and is not C. irritans. The best guess due to the lack of information is either Uronema or Brooklynella. Not knowing which, formalin SW dips would be the best option.

BTW, hyposalinity is 100% accurate. It's the hobbyist that makes it 90% accurate.

Cheers
Steve
