Ok here goes. The first fish I purchaed were the blue tang and the clown fish. They were then put into QT
(both in 10gal tank). About 5days later I got the wrasse and the clown goby. They then went into QT
in a 5gal bucket. They were kept in for 2weeks (which I know is too short now but a little late for that).
The tang was fine for 2-3 weeks then I thought it got into some snail slime. After the 'slime' she was ok but then about a week later (maybe less) she just layed in her rock but would come out to eat. Then she wouldn't even come out to eat. I captured her in a net and put her into QT
where she died the next day. She appeared to have slime/ mucus on her.
The clown was fine. He was acting normal. He had some small amounts of 'slime' possibly. Then that night he was pale. Acting weird by laying on his stomach against a rock. The clown never stopped swinging so this was odd. I had done a 5gal water change earlier in the day. The water was aerated with outside air since I was battling high CO2
indoors, the cause of my low pH. I had also hooked my skimmer up to outdside air source to help as well and it has. It does have some cabon filter around the intake. I found him dead lthe next morning.
The glown goby did not appear to have any problems. He hoped from rock to rock normally. He then just stopped eating. Last night he looked pale. I knew he was going to die and he did. He seemed to just kind of be powerless. Like he was suffocating but he wasn't because he lived for at least 4 hrs. I don't know that he was suffocating but he acted like a fish you catch and keep out of the water too long.
I am in the process of setting up a QT
as well. So what do you think? Thanks for the help by the way.
