Your frogspawn has a lot of skeleton on it and a baby head growing. Thatís great. All that skeleton will help it grow new heads faster.

I did not realize the extra skeleton helped it grow faster. Thanks for the info.

Put a seaweed clip in with some nori on it and saw my YT nibbling at it! Woohoo!! I'm always a little nervous until I see a new fish eat for the first time.

Sad day.....lost my YT to, what I'm certain was, marine velvet. Lost a clown a couple days ago, but he had no outward signs of anything. I can only assume it was velvet as well. I am currently dosing with Polyp Labs Medic so hopefully the remaining two clowns can beat it.

Sorry to hear that. My tank is currently fallow because of velvet. I have done a lot of research over the last month and once velvet is present  you have to quarantine survivors and go fallow for 76 days.  It sucks but Iíve been using the time to add more frags and upgrade equipment. Good luck

I've been reading a lot today as well and that looks like that's the direction I'll be taking also. Problem is going to be whether I can catch the two remaining clowns.

My clown was easy to catch. Early morning feed with lights off and quick catch with the net. Got the others with the clubs fish trap. Just request to use it if you need it.

Well, sad sad day....ended up losing all my fish to what I can only believe was velvet.

The plan is to leave the tank fishless for 76 days and set up a QT for all new fish from now on. I gambled when I had a tank years ago and never had any issues. Not so lucky this time.

I have set up a 20L as a QT tank. Added a couple cute plastic decorations for the grandkids....




Looks like I need to tone down the blues a little. Thinking of picking up some clowns and start all over again.

Just a suggestion, I would consider using a sponge filter as well as the HOB filter. I actually use 3 in my twenty quarantine. 2 that are hooked up to an air pump and one large one that I seeded in my sump that is not hooked up. Seems to work pretty well so far. I will occasionally run a HOB filter just to remove any organics.

Thanks. I currently have a piece of foam in my the sump of my DT that I plan on moving over and placing in the HOB filter. I have bio media in the HOB as well. I seeded the QT with nitrifying bacteria as well.

Curious, why do you suggest the extra sponge filter?

Yes, been a long while! LOL

I lucked out with my prior tanks. Bound to happen, I suppose. Have a nice little QT tank set up now. Iíll use it while my tank sits fishless for a few weeks.

My son informed that I had Squidworth and Spongebobís houses backwards. I had to switch them because it was driving him nuts. LOL

I have rationalized in my mind that the sponge with no flow would be able to establish some anaerobic bacteria and help with nitrate build up. I have no proof that it works, but the fish I have ran through there are doing well. So I guess that is proof enough for me. I always had trouble getting fish through quarantine, but with this current setup and using the Paraguard, I am having good results.

That doesnít not make sense. Any extra space for bacteria would seem to be a positive.

Iíve read conflicting reports on Paraguard. Some say itís great, others say without copper it wonít work.

I ended up ordering some Cupramine. Seems a little safer than than straight copper, from what Iíve read.
