    My First QT, A Journal

    My yellow tang did this when I QT'ed it. I ended up posting here in a panic thinking something was wrong and spent days with my somach in knots thinking he was a gonner. Turns out he just wanted none of my :poop: and was fine when I wasn't around 😂

    You are a gentleman AND a scholar. I've been itching for something cheap and simple for the Coral QT that doesn't require me manually topping off all the time.

    Question of the Day Most overrated fish, what is it?

    Cardinalfish and Squirrelfish. Cardinals are so boring and the eyes of Pajama Cardinals and Squirrelfish are absolutely terrifying. Would probably agree with clownfish being the most overrated next.

    Gem Tang laying on side following FW Dip

    Just a few quick observations; I'm not as experienced as the experts here but: 1. How big is that tang? 12g seems small for that fish; when I QT'ed a yellow tang in a 20g QT I really pushed the limits and saw similar twitching that I now think was related to a lack of swimming space. Fully grown...

    UV Sterilizers, which to choose and why?

    How about the 8W or 15W Hangers? I've got a 20g long coral QT I want an added layer of protection for when it comes to Uronema and Velvet. Reducing troublesome biofilm would be an added bonus...

    Why? Why can't you just leave things alone!

    What sketch/model software are you using? I don't have a SolidWorks license at work anymore and I don't want to fork out the $ for one myself LOL

    QT Procedures

    Just wondering - any reason why the fish don't receive a metro bath for external parasites?

    Reducing nitrates

    Thank you for the advice! I actually don't know my immediate NO4 level since I'm in the same boat as every other poor shmuck that bought a Hannah Nitrate Checker and now I can't get reagent. I have a Salifert test on the way. Last I checked (about two weeks ago) they were around 42ppm. I feel...
