Okay, heres the story...
I've had my saltwater tank for about a month and a half. In there, I had 2 yellow tailed blue damsles and a yellow tang. I got them 3 weeks into initially setting up the tank. I noticed a brown algae beginning to form allover my tank and eventually covering up all the rocks and stuff. I read that this was part of the cycle process and not to worry. Well, 2 weeks later, the algae has gotten even worst, and one by one all 3 of the fish died all within 48 hours of eachother.
The first fish to go was the yellow tang. I noticed slight discoloration along his body, so I put him in a quarantine tank. I went to my LFS
and informed them of the symptoms of my fish, and they said it was probably just stress (which I didn't believe). I've read that tangs are susceptible to developing saltwater ich, so I bought medication for it, but by the time I got home, he already passed away.
So, now I got worried about my damsels who's bodies were both turning white. I put them in the quarantine tank and medicated the tank also. Doing all that I thought I could do, I went to sleep. The next morning, I woke up and found one of them dead. The other looked like he was dying, so I told my brother to do whatever he felt was right. Eventually, that one ended passing away as well.
Does anyone know what the hell is going on with my tank? I was so upset when all of this happened, I didn't know what to do! I really do not want to give up this hobby, but on the other hand, I don't want to kill anymore fish! I've got a 55 gallon African Cichlid tank and NEVER ran into any problems with them!
Sorry for going on a rant, but I haven't got the slightest idea of what to do. Anyone have suggestions?
