Yesterday, for the first time in my 55 gallon tank's life (6 months), I moved all of the LR
around to change the landscaping, hopefully making it better for my fish and for me aesthetically. And today...ich on two of my fish (Reef Butterfly and Fiji Puffer). The other two fish I have (Blue Damsel and Gold-Striped Maroon Clownfish) appear to be OK thus far. Does the altering of my LR
have anything to do with this??? I wouldn't think so, but I'm wondering...
To provide more info:
I think the ich may stem from the newest fish (Reef Butterfly), which I've had since 5/19. He's displaying more symptoms than the Puffer (small white spots and rotting fins). No agaggression thus far between any fish. All are eating normally and have varied diets. Water parameters...8.2 for PH
, Ammonia and Nitrites at 0 and Nitrates reading 10 on a Saltwater Master Liquid Test Kit by Aquarium Pharmaceuticals. All fish currently are acting normal. I have 30-35lbs of LR
a Penguin 330 Filter, a Cyclone 100 Protein Skimmer and crushed coral. No additives whatsoever have been used.
Thanks in advance for all the help, sorry for the long email (just answering all the questions I was told to provide answers to). Thanks again!
