Hi Everyone --
For backgorund, see this thread:
Update: I suppose that the royal gramma got more thrown at it than it could handle, and died today. But the lawnmower blenny I got at the same time (and from the same tank at the LFS
), seems to be doing swimmingly. At least, I don't see any spots like those that developed on the gramma, and he is moving around just fine.
Since he's been in QT
for a week, yet has gone through the same stresses, how much longer should I leave him in there to be sure he won'y infect the main tank? He's looking pretty lonely ;-)
As usual, many thanks.
PS -- Oh, and I got a better filter for the QT
, to replace the lightweight, suction-cup-failing POS I bubble filter I have now. Definitely want to hedge my bet when I get that $50 flame angel next time around ;-)
