It has come to my attention that reviews/comments about Humblefish Aquatics are being deleted/moved on R2R. I am not a paying sponsor there, so let's respect that by not infringing upon them.
You are more than welcome to post a review or make comments here. Even negative reviews will not be...
These are the bare essentials I recommend for quarantining:
Anti-parasitic: Copper Power with a Hanna High Range Copper Colorimeter (HI702) for testing. Treats Ich & velvet.
Anti-parasitic: Metronidazole (e.g. Seachem Metroplex); treats brook & uronema.
Dewormer: Prazipro or API General Cure...

I have no actual experience with this “disease”, so everything I know comes from anecdotal evidence obtained online. Probably the best description of Tang Fingerprint Disease comes from this trusted source: http://chucksaddiction.thefishestate.net/disease.html

How to Acclimate

Humblefish Aquatics is a small company which specializes in selling quarantined, conditioned fish. My QT protocol is as follows:
All fish are treated with either Chloroquine phosphate or copper + metronidazole. This prophylactically addresses "The Big 4" when it comes to fish parasites: Ich...
Below is a list of difficult fish to quarantine, with specific recommendations on QT strategies for each group of fish.
Angelfish (and their sensitivity to copper)
I've never figured out if angels being sensitive to copper is a "thing" or not. They do seem to fare a little better in Cupramine...
Preface - Freshwater (FW) black mollies have been used for years in saltwater aquariums for algae control. However, this write-up will focus on their potential for identifying marine fish diseases present in a display tank (DT) and also quarantine tank (QT). The most important detail is to...
I don’t know about y’all, but I miss the days of doing the “fish shop hopping” on a Saturday or Sunday. Growing up in the New Orleans area, there must have been a dozen or more shops with SW back in the 80s - 90s. Some I remember:
Aquarium Imports (2 locations)
This poll is in response to a request for my company (Humblefish Aquatics) to advertise on this forum.
I have some reservations about doing this, because I wanted this forum to be commercial-free and not about promoting my business.
The only stipulation I have is that any other...
We are just a few days old and my expertise is in fish diseases & treatments. However, if you would like to see more sub-forums added (e.g. Reef Chemistry, Aquarium Lighting, Nuisance Algae, etc.) then just let me know!
The reason to go fallow (fishless) is to eliminate a fish disease from your DT (display tank). Going fallow works because you are denying the disease a fish host to feed upon, essentially starving it to death.
In order to go fallow you must remove ALL fish from your DT. If just...
Ich eradication vs. Ich management
The purpose of this article is to discuss the pros & cons of ich eradication and ich management, and present the best methods for implementing each.
