. What salt are you using again?
Yeah, I normally run phosguard. I ran out of media bags so I fell behind. As far as salt I just buy saltwater for my LFS
. I spent hours researching what happened in my tank and all signs point to brooklynella. I read that the parasite will kill clowns, angelfish and tangs. Well, I lost three clowns and a flame back angelfish. Leopard wrasse and blue spotted goby did not die. Both, however, showed signs of it. The wrasse was flashing against sand and gobys color was faded.
I will be upgrading to a 60 gallon and adding new live sand in 3 weeks. Until then, and another 5 weeks thereafter, I'll put no fish in my tank.
