The pains of not QT'ing new fish. I'm really sorry. I have no suggestions for easy removal of a damsel. I've had to tear apart a 110g tank to remove a damsel (remove 100lbs of rock). It sucks but sometimes is necessary. Good luck.

Some one suggested to leave the net in the tank so the fish gets used to it. Feed and grab him!

Nice idea Roka. I'll give that a shot.

Update:

I ended up having to re-aquascape. *mad*

Needless to say, the damsel is gone. Brought it back to my LFS.
Clowns not doing to well. SG 1.010 temp 80 degrees.

Did not eat last nights feeding.

How fast did you drop the salinity and raise the temp?
Have you tested your water?
What are the results?

The male is NOT doing good guys. He's laying on his side at the bottom of the tank, and his breathing is labored. I've tried scooping him out but he darts away with all this energy.

He has eaten in 24 hrs now. The female ate alittle today. I did a 10% again earlier, and cleaned out any detrius etc on the bottom of the QT.

PH is 8.4
Ammonia is 0.5
Nitrates are 10 ppm
temp is 80 F
SG is 1.010

Should I icebox the male?
I'm absolutely gutted at this, and if there is no way for him to improve.....I dunno.
This is downing me out alot. I feel helpless.

The problem now is the ammonia. It must be at 0. He might be suffering from ammonia poisoning. I would think about doing a 30 or 40 % PWC and try to get that ammonia down.

I've actually never had ammonia at 0%. In any tank I've ever had.

0.5 is rather nominal IMO. They were both just about dead this morning, and probably are too far gone now. By the time I get home from work I'm expecting them to be gone.

If not, I'll deff. try a 40% PWC.

*edit*
If they are alive, how do you all feel about a product like this?

I know people that use it but I choose to remove it by way of my RO/DI unit. I have no experience with it.

If by some miracle they are alive when I get home, and it is ammonia poisoning....can they be saved if it's gone this far by doing a 40% pwc and adding some of that supp? Or should I put them down?
