just to update everyone- I took the damsels out at about 6 pm tonight. When I returned at 8:30 the clown in question was hosting in my hairy mushroom. Too cool. The smaller clown is still towards the bottom but I think they both just need to get that safe feeling and they will be OK. Thanks to all for the advice

Well things just went bad again. I woke up this am and there she was. My first loss and I am not sure why. All perameters are good(nitrates 40) but that is my only problem. Could it have been the stress from the previous tenants? The little guy is perking up more now than when I first removed the damsels

Sorry for your loss.
hard to tell what the problem was, maybe she was already ailing for some reason.

I just did another WC to help with the nitrates. I know that 40 is not killer for fish but I want it better just incase it was a contributing factor to another problem. I will see how the little guy does. He is swimming well but still wont venture from the bottom of the tank. He got some food but not as much as I would like because he is so far down

Just checked the new water perameters.(I usually wait but). The water change seemed to help.

Temp 78, pH 8.2(?), salin 1.023, amm 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 10 & phos 0

Well I lost clown # 2 this morning. I checked him at 6 am and he was swimming better than he has been. By 8 am he was gone.

I am at a loss as what is going on. I have searched a bunch of things to see if it could have been ick or velvet. Cant find any pics though. I neglected to tell everyone but on day two I saw some bumps on the back of both clowns. I didnt think this was ick because it is always described as small white grains. This was obviously under the skin and was only there a short time(12hrs) and then gone. I plan on leaving the tank empty from fish for 6 weeks just to be sure.

Could this be ick? How quick can ick kill? Any other suggestions.

Well from the pictures and description I had ich. This is the first description I have seen that described thit as cysts. It seems like a perfect description. Well I guess I will be concentrating on inverts for the tank for 6 weeks or so.

I know I should have but I did not QT. I have learned my lesson. In two weeks or so I will get some new fish and go directly to QT for 4 weeks.

QS- Thanks for all the help- kudos to you

Don't beat yourself up over it. Many of us, (myself included) have learned this lesson the hard way.
