Ok, all fish are out. Had to leave eel in his rock. I tried to get it out, but was afraid of killing something else. So, clown, lunar wrasse, blue line puffer (found him!), and eel in QT. Also got to redo aqua scape. Thanks for y'alls help and encouragement! 1 month to go and lord willing I'll be good. 1 month, right??? QT is at 1.009 (refractometer) DT only had inverts.

Just read the cycle was one month. Maybe that was just hypo. Can't hurt. I'll wait the 8 weeks.

Yea but remember at the end of the cycle it reproduces . That's why you wait out the 8 weeks.

Thinking of getting LED lighting... Maybe reef compatible. Tank is 72", broke up into three sections by 2 braces. Any ideas? No, I'm not a DIY guy...lol

Well, quick update. Lunar wrasse and puffer didn't survive. The eel, yellow watchman, and clown have no spots. Should I wait to raise the salinity? Also I bought some inverts. Chocolate chip star, arrow crab, and 2 peppermint shrimp.

Also, lfs says no way ich can kill a fish in a week. He says there is something else wrong. Took a water sample to him, like mine, all readings good. pH 8.3, amo 0, trite 0, trate 2.5. So idk. Either way. No new fish till Apr 4th.

Well the arrow crab is agressive and will probably kill all other inverts in your tank.... are they in the qt tank?
