Learned Lesson the Hard Way

One of my fish came down with ICK. (NO I did not quarrantine him, I was very impatient. ) Well, yesterday I went and bought a QT tank and moved him to it. I had to remove every single piece of live rock from the tank to get to him which was quite an ordeal. Most of my rock has little caves and holes in it where he would swim and hide as soon as he saw the net.
I would never want to go through that again having to remove all the rock and then set it back up. Like my header describes. I learned my lesson the hard way. I will never put a new fish in the show tank without fisrt putting in to a QT tank.

Sue.

I'm glad you learned your lesson, wish it could have been less painful. Tearing down and setting back up a reef tank is hard work!!
