No other fish have symptoms. The royal gramma let this guy know which hiding space was his when I first put this guy in there, but I haven't seen him being harassed since then. He swims around the gramma all the time now, no problem, but I think that was the gramma extablishing his preference in the beginning.
I just got this fish three or four days ago, so the illness could have been from the capture and transport to the fish store and then to me??? I am a bad parent and did not have a QT
tank set up, the 15g was supposed to be my qt
, but I ended up making it a second tank. In the tank I also have two ocellaris clowns and a dragonet, that't it. There is live rock in there.
Today, I went out and bought a 10g starter tank with filter and heater. I was going to seed it with water from my 55g tank (my main tank). I will put him in there and watch him for a few days. I did by some melaflix(spl?) as recommended, so I'll use it if he doesn't get better.
I was thinking I should take a handful of gravel from the main tank to put into the qt
tank so that there will be some bio-filtration, whaddaya think?
