Ok as some of you know had ich on my tang again.... Tried kick ich for the last 2 weeks was not working. Last night she looked a little better and was even eating again by the time I got home. But My reef really could not take another week without a skimmer.. and I felt like dumpin more stuff in there for the next two weeks was not really gonna accomplish anything except start to really mess up my corals. So we got the cupramine had the QT
set up for about a week (just in case) and tore appart the reef. Got the PBT out... That was tough.. and got her into QT
... she was not all that excited and we added cupramine as per instructions you all know how that goes bring it up slowly add only the half dose on the first day. Once in qt
as she was visibally upset after the prolonged chase to get her out of the display. Well this morning came downstairs all groggy but I wanted to see how she was doing. My beautiful fish is no longer with us... My wife is very upset.. I'm upset .... This is the one we did by the book.. Qt
then display then ich then tried the Kick ich then said no lets get her to QT
bit the bullet and tore apart the reef to get her out.. All for nothing. I think she may have hung on longer if we would have left her in the main tank.. but alas it was not to be.. Now I have a QT
tank that is pretty much garbage as it and everything in it has been exposed to copper. Soo I think we are done with Tangs Forever (and that sucks they are my favorite fish but we have lost 2 to ich now the first we didn't take out of display for fear of stressing the sick fish and that didn't work either) and fish for a long while. I think my wife is done with the tank totally and I am done with fish for a long while. Just gonna keep the ones I have and play with the corals which I am having real good luck with prior to turning off my skimmer for the Kick Ich. This just really sucks..really sucks....
Thanks for the help yesterday guys I just don't think that my sick fish was able to make the transistion from one tank to the next..
I guess I am just no good with tangs... I have never lost any other kind of fish ever *knock on wood* and now 2 tangs..
