  1. Torch dying ?

    I think I found the culprit! Just witnessed skunk cleaner shrimp scavenged the polyps from torch coral! I am not sure if it is because that torch head is weak and dying or shrimps just got too hungry! I didn’t feed them in QT often enough I guess! I thought they were reef safe!

    One head disappeared overnight but rest look fine. Is this some worm or just water parameters or lighting flow not right? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. Torch dying ?

    Can this be caused by brown jelly disease? Should I cut off the empty head? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I guess disappearing as clean as in my case, that head can assume to be a goner ? :( Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Torch dying ?

    No pooping observed but It has been like that closed for days. I measured water parameters and found ALK at 6.7kH and NO3 at 20ppm. Not sure if this is the reason but I immediately did a 60% WC and brought ALK to 7.8 and reduce NO3 to 8. And will slowly bring ALK to 8.4 ish. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Interested in knowing how exactly feeding ocean plankton and nori is? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. September 2017 ATA Meeting Pics

    Great photos and write up! I love these meet ups and always learn new things! Although I am only in the hobby for 7 months, I start to get why you guys are so into reefing! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Looks nice! I need the exact same thing for my reefer 350 too! Where and how much did you get it! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. I treated him with pimafix and melafix for a week after Furan 2 treatment. The fluffy fungus ball fell off after 4 days of treatment. But the other bump on the tail stayed there for more than 3 weeks. It looks like skin color but not very sure. Based on size and time it stayed, not likely to be ick but I am lost what might this be? He has been in QT more than a month ago. I wonder if I can transfer him to DT now or should wait for that bump to disappear? See photo. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    My YT died two days ago :( RIP Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Help! Weird bump on Yellow Tangs tail!

    The big one above this one that fell off looks like cauliflower. But this one is too small to tell. Just look like a bump under skin and won't go away. It's been there since 3 weeks ago and stay through Furan 2, cupramine, and pimafix and melafix treatments. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I am treating yellow tang and kole tang in a 10 gal QT for bacteria infection along with ick. I found on the web it's ok to use furan 2 with cupramine. But my question is after 4 dose of furan 2, I cannot use active carbon to remove furan 2 because of cupramine treatment. Is it ok to leave antibiotics active for additional 14 days after cupramine treatment is done? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Foran 2 with cupramine

    After a weak of pimafix and melafix, the big fluffy ball fell off, but if you notice there is another small dot on the tail below the big fluff (visible in the picture I uploaded), which still persists. That small dot has been there more than two weeks, even before I start the Pima treatment so it's unlikely it's ick. But I wonder why that dot still stays and should I continue pimafix and melafix?

  15. Foran 2 with cupramine

    Thanks so much for the offer. But I already purchased both pimafix and melafix. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Foran 2 with cupramine

    So would you suggest that I remove copper and start treating fungus? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Foran 2 with cupramine

    I started to doubt if what my yellow tang has is not ick. I had run two full courses of 4-dose Furan 2 and cupramine at 0.5 mg/l for 4 days. The white spot on the tails still persists and grow in size. Size-wise not like salt grain and hangs on the tails for two weeks already. Can it be fungus or other things? Should I remove copper and antibiotics and try fungus treatment? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Foran 2 with cupramine

    I am worried that doing this will reset the timer for cupramine treatment. How bad is it to leave Furan 2 active for the whole 14 days? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Dispar Anthias Male?

    I purchased two dispar anthias from Cuttlefish and Corals this Sunday. I am a little bit worried that they both look different in color from the other in my DT, which were also purchased in Cuttlefish and Corals. I am sure the two in DT are females but wonder if the two new ones are males or turning into males. Any thought? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. Dispar Anthias Male?

    I think she is sick but I can't figure out what the cause is. She is not responding to feeding and just stay at bottom of that corner without much response. She jumped a little when I took her out to Hospital tank just few minutes ago. I am using paraguard now to see if it helps. :( Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  21. Dispar Anthias Male?

    [update] It seems that the new pair are females dispar but with different coloration so I transferred the new pair into DT few days ago. At first all fours are doing fine, but suddenly the bigger one of the old pair start acting weird. She will either float at the top surface or hide at the bottom or rock without much response. She still swims out and eats while eating but sometimes she won't notice it's eating time and just stayed under the rock. I am worried if she is sick or just under some kind of stress because the newly added are all bigger than her? But the smallest one is happy swimming with the new pair. Any thoughts?

  22. Dispar Anthias Male?

    Thanks! They are beautiful! I am just worried if they both will be male. If that happens, I might need to exchange one out for a female or other fish! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. Dispar Anthias Male?

    I just checked the new comers again and they don't seem to have those telling signs of ignitus. Hopefully they are just different coloration of female dispar! If they are both, unfortunately, turning into dispar male, how soon would I know that they either get along or start fighting each other? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  24. Dispar Anthias Male?

    Thanks for the detailed information! If they do both turn to males, should I only keep one? If they are both ignitus, will they be happy and schooling with dispar in DT? What if one of each group turn males later? Will they fight each ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
