My clown fish has successfully made it through two nights in his QT
. He's eating just fine and not showing any signs of stress, so I think he's going to be OK. As far as water quality issues in the past, the only issues I've had were nitrates, but after purchasing some nitra sponge and adding it to my sump (15gal built into the tank) it's been sitting at zero. I can't get an exact ammonia reading because the first interval in my test is .25, so it has always been slightly higher than zero, but it's never been the same color as .25. The owner of my LFS
(who is totally awesome) used the high quality water test kits that they use at the store and said there was nothing wrong as far as SG
, ammonia, nitrates, nitrites, or PH
, that would contribute to an overnight tank wipeout. He also is giving me a few free damsels (being that i flushed $200 worth of fish i bought from him) today to check to make sure everything is OK in my tank. I've done essentially an 80% water change using the water from the LFS
. The owner did say bubbles on the surface were and indication of Ostratoxin poisoning.
