Eel and watchman are back in tank. All is well so far. Eel really enjoys the room. So if all is well by next week, imma add fish. Just one for now. Trying to decide if I wanna do a reef or not.

Your making me nervous ..Seems early to start adding already..,,and yes,inverts can definitely bring ick into your tank...If its wet it can hitch a ride..If you get inverts,rock,sand ect.. from an ick infested tank and put it directly into your tank chances are you just added ick to your tank..Remember its not a pod or worm that you can see,its microscopic ,,you'll never see it on or in anything.I'm sure you've seen this link many times on here,,but its really worth it to read every word
An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure: A Quarantine Tank for Everything by Steven Pro - Reefkeeping.com
.Good luck

EDIT::I thought you had added stuff on the 11th of Feb.
Yes ich can kill in a week,,it can kill overnight

Added that to QT. I think I had other issues other then ich. Same thing happened to my 90g. I added to much, to quick. Been doing 30% pwc weekly, maintained tank, skimmer was dirty for 4 days straight after I took out fish. I think I caused the ick, if that makes sense. I stressed the fish due to me being inpatient. I screwed up and made a rookie mistake. I'm not adding anyone else till I know these guys are good. All seems well so far. So we shall see.

Went home and the angel was gasping for air. Tried to put him in 10g but lost him. No spots or marks. I've never had luck with dwarf angels, idk why. Goby is actually being sociable and coming out, Trigger is getting better, too. Eel still just hides until feeding time.


Angel was eating and also picking at rocks. Constantly in and out the rocks. It's so weird how they are active and all over the place, then the next thing you know, they are gone... annoying.
