Definitly not what I said it could be. Keep him in the qt untill we can figure out what it is. Can you get a pic of him in the QT tank?

You have a niger that has flaking skin, but I didn't notice you mentioning whether it was previously quarantined and if so, with the current medications of copper and malachite? Good for you in quarantining; however, you are mixing two highly lethal medications. One important rule in quarantine is not to mix medications (exceptions are formalin/malachite). Dare I ask at what dosages of each? What kind of copper? Do you know what or even why you are treating with such harsh medications in the first place let alone mixing the two? I am surpised you do not have swimming skeletans at this point.

I agree with James. The point here is that your ammonia reading was the problem. Any level of ammonia is lethal. PWC`s are needed immediately.

Im heart broken he was such a good fish, he never bothered no1 he didnt deserve this...

Sorry about your loss SW. Its always terrible when losing a fish. Especially such a personable one. Are you going to get another down the road?

yea i got a lot i need to do right now, with re-establishing the tank, im running it fishless for about a month. I still have 2 other fowlr tanks, and 1 Reef running right now as well that need my attention. Plus he in my mind is not replaceable so its gonna take me a lil to get over him. I really appreciate your concern. I did however get a new fish today. I got a 90 gallon FOWLR and i bought a pink tail trigger!! Hes a Beautiful (Hawaiian) specimen. Which are a lot prettier than the red sea specimens. These are DEF my second favorite fish. I love my triggers. But hes doing great hes a pig, i got him quarentining right now for a week before i drop him in the show tank though. I need to get some pics up iv been slacking. lol.

No offense, but what's the point of qt if it is just for a week? 1 month minimum or it's a waste of time. In that amount of time you can hyposalinity and deworm.
