    130.4 waterbox just got salty

    I would guess that it’s more likely because you stopped using Vibrant. Plus you also removed your sand, which removes a lot of organics. I doubt it’s a straight correlation to removing the UV.

    Oh money cowries are another fantastic hair algae eater. I get those from Reef Cleaners.

    I don’t find that the tuxedos are thieves like the Halloween and pincushion urchins are, especially if they’re small. Trochus are great and they breed like rabbits. Astreas can’t flip themselves over so I would skip those. Neither will help with the hair algae, though, you want the big turbos...

    I told him to get urchins and a foxface.

    If you want to try a BTA, I’ll give you one. I have loads....

    HELP Persistent Internal Parasites

    Oh I know, but my point was just that since we’ve been seeing prazi resistance and they’re in QT, I’d personally skip the prazi and go straight to fenbendazole. In a DT I would say to try prazi first.

    Yeah I wouldn’t sweat 0.04ppm PO4 or 12ppm NO3 to be honest. Especially if you want a goni.

    HELP Persistent Internal Parasites

    If the clown is in QT, I would pick up some fenbendazole to use with the metro instead of switching to GC. It seems to me like we’re seeing more instances of prazi-resistant internal parasites these days, so as long as it’s in QT, I’d just skip straight to fenbendazole.

    Instead of anem

    They never used to, but then I started thinning out the nems because they just won’t stop splitting and that sent them over the edge :ROFLMAO: The big one actually drew blood for the first time last week. She circles me like a shark now when I’m working in the tank.

    Instead of anem

    Also I’ve had 13 spotcinctus clowns now and they always find something to host them. My first one loved her big fluffy toadstool. One of the others liked fuzzy mushroom, and of course now one loves her alveopora. And they’ve all loved BTAs. The ocellaris have been hit or miss, this current pair...

    Instead of anem

    Why thank you for the kind words :love: I’ve found alveoporas to be hardier than gonis, and I have clownfish hosting both (the big spotcinctus in the main tank loves her alveopora, and the two ocellaris in Greg’s tank are living in a goni). Mainly just make sure your tank has some...

    Don’t panic, it sounds like it’s just debris. They’re very mucousy fish, stuff likes to stick to them!

    i messed up somewhere

    Have you noticed any behavioral symptoms, like flashing/scratching, head twitching, yawning, hanging out in the flow of a powerhead, anything like that? Any changes like eating less, hiding more, or breathing fast? I honestly wouldn’t panic over a single spot or two, especially on a rabbitfish...
