well, I did some research on QT's and tank setups, Sounds like the lion might have popeye due to poor water conditions. I read the advice that Fluff sent me on QT procedures and will get one set up immediately. What size tank would be a good QT tank for a lion. (he is about 7"). Hopefully I can get some more info on procedures of penacillin applications.

Well if you could find that 75-100gal soon I'd set that up immediately and use your current tank as your QT. For the health of your fish u need to upgrade immediately. Your lion is already quite large 7" (18cm or so) a 40gal isnt going to be big enough in the coming months especially with the grouper..

Triple Sulfa is a bacterial fighting medication that can erradicate cloudy eyes.. you might want to try that.. Fluff knows alot, so hopefully you listen to her and the others on here..

I believe the fish will only continue to get sick unless you upgrade immediately..

I made a correction to the recomendation Mike.. the CSS 220 would due for up to 125 gallons per what Ive read elsewere.. it should due for the tank that you said you are trying to upgrade to.. I would recomend the CSS 125 for the current tank size, wich would end up being your QT most likely.
stripes I didnt read a post or chat anything about a grouper.. just a puffer in addition.. did I miss something?
I do agree that the upgrade in tank size needs to be done as swiftly as possible.. aquireing it should be a top priority, you still have to set it up and cycle it..

Thanks maji for making me feel oh so great lol

Woops my bad..

I read it wrong.. (Panther) puffer.. = panther grouper..

IMO they are both heavy waste producers anyway so a 100gal is still needed..

I would rethink your set up before you do the same thing in a new tank. Under gravel filters are old school and they are nitrate producers the same is said for the Curshed coral. When you get the new tank look into getting enough live rock to be the filtration for the tank and use sand instead of CC. Adding cured LR to the tank you have now can help out some. The others have given good advice so keep up with the maintenance.
