Wow that's crazy...fish can't get rid of a disease they themselves can catch, I'd think that's common sense!

I don't know saltwater but I know that no water change in 3 months is really bad! And I take it that the other stuff you said was very untrue as well.

Depending on the tank, 3 months actually could not be that bad. If its FOWLR and the macro algae is keeping levels low, you can go without waterchanges for a while. However, a reef consumes trace elements so you need waterchanges for the health of your coral.

Ah yeah that's similar to a planted tank, the ammonia and stuff can be low but you need to do water changes for the health of the plants.

I am moving soon and would like to find a new home that will love them as much as i do. There are two piscus catfish that have lived in that tank for over a year. Those are my pride and joy, im basically just asking for the price of the tank. I will include blood worms which alone are pretty expensive. Contact me if i b terested.
