As some of you know, I had the sandstorm monday and everything finally calmed down. I came home yesterday to white spots all over my little tang and on the tips of the fins on my flame angel.. Today the angel looks better but my tang has cloudy eyes and for the first time is not overly interested in food. He ate some but not with his usual vigor. I have had a Qt
up now for about two weeks thinking that a problem was imminant when I first got my tang.. I had tried in vain for 2 nights to catch him, couldn't, let it go all was fine.. Last night I again spent about 2 hrs trying to catch them to get them to QT
after seeing the spots and it didn't work.. Today I was bound and determined I FIlled two 5 gallon jugs which is all I have with saltwater and started pulling out rock well needles to say the fish just kept hiding lower and lower.. and after basically flooding my living room, with my wife crying over our sick fish and the mounting frustration over not being able to catch them due to running out of places to put rock we even put some in the qt
we have to give up.. It is just stirring up the tank all over agian taking stuff out putting it in moving it around.. This is all to no avail.. Is there ANYTHING that anyone has had success with that is Reef safe that I can TRY.. I am willing to try the wife has told me to do what I can. (I am Stunned she likes the fish this much I never knew the tears really caught me off guard) So I changed out the water I had in the buckets so I did a 10 gallon change on a 55 so it was prolly a 20-25 percent waterchange. Is there any hope they can fight this off on their own?? Is there anything I can do.. I am beginning to feel that the harder I try the worse it is on them.. I turned up my temp to 80 and am open to suggestions or even words of hope that mabye someone had their fish pull through when faced with a similar situatuion.
