Sorry for your loss

Generally speaking, it wouldn't be something you did or didn't do. The only real exception being if the foods you feed are too old or contaminated somehow, which is usually rare. Your fish in the display tank would have also been affected had that been the case. Most likely the fish had it from the getgo it just didn't show any real signs until it was too late. Imagine the fate of your other fish had these two not been in a QT.

As far as new aquisitions, I would tear down the QT, bleach it and set up again. Cycle it for a few weeks and you should be set. Be wary about what fish shoppe you purchased these ones from, it could very well happen again.

Cheers
Steve

Would it have made a differencethat he had the blenny in stock for 2 weeks or so and the gramma was new and in a different filter system. Could they have passed it between them and both been affected that quickly?

Thanks again steve-s. I will tear down the QT and bleach it well.

Bacterial problems can easily be passed from fish to fish as can certain parasites. Even though the blenny passed first, it's more than possible the gramma introduced it. Hard call either way. Wouldn't matter if each fish came from a different fish shoppe, once both are placed together in a closed system, each will eventually become affected.

Cheers
Steve

I figured it like anything else will pass between them. I just didnt think it would pass betwwen them and kill so quick and without any signs beforehand. Each fish gave 24hrs or less of signs and they were gone. I think I am going to stick with my clowns for a while and get the QT ready for some future additions.
