The Angel and the Bicolor Chromis look like they have something fungal. I'm guessing it could be from being in that holding tank for several weeks. I tried to keep water conditions good, but am thinking that maybe they were not good enough.

If time permits, I am trying to get them out and into QT later today. They are eating and acting fine , but both have white patches. Hard to tell with the Green Chromis, but I'm going after him too.

Sorry to hear that. I always thought fungal issues were very rare in saltwater . Do you think there is any chance of these being stress spots?

Well, this is becoming more and more interesting...I looked at the Angel early afternoon and there was about a 1" vertical red scrape about mid-body. I was able to catch it and get it into my hexagon QT. I am going to try treating with a product called Greenex, which has Malachite green and Quinine HCL. I am going to try to get both Chromis tomorrow at feeding. No way that is happening after I got the Angel. They know a net is looking for them.

I'm not thrilled at this point. Had what appeared to be healthy fish up until days before putting them in the new tank. Now, I am not sure what I have going on and my plans for getting new fish in have stalled. I still think I will get a couple fish towards Christmas and those will go in the 45g for observation. Should know what the outcome of my current fish is by then and I plan to leave the tank fallow now until mid/late January. I am hoping these fish will be cleared up and that I can add the new fish about then too.

A red scrape? I'll be honest...but what the hell could that even be?

I will try to get a picture in the morning. My guess (and beleive me, that's all it is ) is that it is possibly a bacterial infection? Almost looked like it got scrapped... I'm wondering if it occurred when it was going at the Lion and just started showing now? It's a long shot since that was days ago.

Bad news...the Singapore did not make it through the night. It was not looking good at bedtime last night. This is a picture of that area...

I agree...sure looks like a wound to me. It has been in the 240 for about a week. For about a week prior, it was acting weird towards the Lion. It would circle above it and dart down and peck at the body. I'm wondering if it did not get struck by a fin and maybe it just took a while to get infected? Seems like a long shot though. The two Chromis in the tank never hassle anyone, so I am almost certain they had nothing to do with this. Last possibility is it was flashing on a rock and did damage that way? I saw it flash once earlier yesterday, but it was acting perfectly normal prior to that (even with the white spots for a couple mornings and a few small white patches that looked like fungus).

I want to try and get the Chromis out at QT them. I'm not sure what's going on and this is the first tank I have ever had that has stumped me. I'm thinking that leaving it fallow for a few weeks can't hurt...just not what I wanted to do .

It's never what we want to do is it? I'd do it just believing it was ich and stress followed by hurting itself off the rock.
