Thanks Steve, good point.
One more thing, when you do the water changes, make sure you vacuum the bottom of the tank and the tops of the pvc pieces. This way you can get some of the trophonts.

unfortunately, i think i was too late in treating my flame angel. he died this morning. yesterday i looked at him and his condition worsened by like 100%. it was very strange. one day he was eating and his eyes were a little cloudy, and yesterday he just stopped eating and looked miserable. he had white stuff all over his body, and i couldnt tell if it was ich or a cottony fungus.

i just dont understand where i went wrong, b/c i kept up w/ water changes and monitored it everyday... its very discouraging. but thanks steve and quarryshark for all your help.

Sorry for your loss... It can be disheartening.
Before you put another fish in that qt tank, make sure you empty it, clean it with bleach and hot water. Rinse well and allow it to dry.
Don't want to infect the next fish.

thanks.

one question though. i have a piece of live rock in my qt. can i put it in my main tank after i treated the qt w/ formalin? of course, i would boil the rock first, but i dont know if boiling would get rid of the meds and the possible parasites that were in there.

Heating will not remove the formalin. It only makes it more toxic. The rock is basically a throw away.

Cheers
Steve
