How's your Tang doing?

Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.

I know I'm a little late in the game, but you also want to watch their breathing if they start to flash on things. Ich and velvet are trapped in the gills long before any spots show.

when helping manage a LFS years ago that is what we went by,
flashing and normal respiration= keep an eye on it
flashing and labored respiration=start treatment immediately.
