i bought a true perc and a purple tipped anenome on Dec 22. water was normal - pH 8.2, 0 ammonia, 0 trites, 0 trates, temp 78F. brought them home and acclimated them with a drip. poor nemo spent all day trying to get in the anemone and after nine hours successfully did so.
the 2 yellow tailed damsels seemed to be pretty teritorial and bugged him a bit. on the morning of the 24th saw a 3-4 white spots on the clown. he was gilling a bit and wouldn't eat much. i took the damsels back to the lfs
, i had no idea they were so territorial. i looked at a few fish compat charts and says they were ok.
spots were gone on christmas day, he started eating better and looked much more lively. i put him in 10 gal qt
anyway and he is eating, looks lively and no spots.
should i start treating the qt
tank immediately or wait to see if more spots develop. i noticed the main tank has white tiny organisms crawling around on the back glass by the heater. could these possibly be the tomites waiting for a passerby? i thought once the parasites drop of the fish to multiply, they wait in the substrate. did i take the clownfish out of the tank in time or can he still develop parasites in the qt
the main 35g tank is fishless. i have the anemone, 3 hermit crabs and some shrooms
