    Adopted Live Rock

    I have about 20 lbs of live rock(probably not live anymore) that I inherited from a friends tank when he tore it down. It has been dry for nearly a year now and I was wondering what I need to do to make sure that the rock is safe prior to putting it in my 60 gallon tank (little over 2 years old...

    finally got the 200g to the house

    it will be FOWLR at first but I am building it to ultimately be a reef tank. we are likely going to use the modular LED set ups from OBD. I think 3 of the 24" pieces is the plan as of now. and I can't wait to get it set up but I have to be patient or I have to deal with tearing it down and...

    I adopted a sick fish and need help getting him healthy

    another update, Blueberry is hanging in there and seems to be moving around much better in the tank. going to do a water change tomorrow morning (25-30%) and then if all stays like this for a while, I'll put him into our display tank and then clean the QT tank and possibly begin prep for...

    finally got the 200g to the house

    Thanks everyone, I can't wait to get it together. I have a 55 gallon tank that I'm starting to set up as the Sump (again, just the mechanics of everything and baffles in the sump). once we get closer to buying the house, I will make more progress in setting everything up. until then, its all...

    finally got the 200g to the house

    Thanks to my wonderful fiance, we finally brought home our 200g tank (60x36x21) from Eric at Aquarium Concepts... it is absolutely incredible and I can't wait to begin putting the pieces together. I don't think we will put water or anything else in it until we buy our house... after moving it in...

    I adopted a sick fish and need help getting him healthy

    Morning update, Blueberry (as we have affectionately began to call him) seems to be moving around more and overall seems a bit more healthy. he still isn't eating in front of me but by the way he is acting I think he is eating when we are out of the room. Seems like he either is scared or...

    I adopted a sick fish and need help getting him healthy

    I was wary of copper in medication for that reason. the medication I used didn't have copper listed on it in any way. is there some way to check if that particular brand uses Copper?

    I adopted a sick fish and need help getting him healthy

    wow... good to know. is there any way to test for these medications after they are used? or do you just gamble and try coral out to see if it lives?

    I adopted a sick fish and need help getting him healthy

    I appreciate the advice Peppie, I wouldn't normally have any in a QT tank either but this was an emergency situation and I had to use the tank we were cycling to make a small reef tank in. so pulling out the sand was impractical in this case. I caught the little guy pecking at the ground this...

    I adopted a sick fish and need help getting him healthy

    Just a quick update. He is still working hard at getting better. Dosed the tank with some anti-bacterial medication and got him to eat 1 pellet and nip at a flame again. Over all be is moving around a little better and interacting with us. I just hoping he starts to eat more

    I adopted a sick fish and need help getting him healthy

    I have been checking it daily. I dosed some of the garlic extreme (i think thats the name) he looked more intently at the flakes I tried this time but only took a nip at one small piece then resumed checking himself out in the glass. I have also discovered that fishing left over food out of a...

    I adopted a sick fish and need help getting him healthy

    The PH of the other tank was low and the Salinity was through the roof... the hydrometer was maxed out (they thought it was broken)

    I adopted a sick fish and need help getting him healthy

    yea, I thought his tail had some bite marks out of it to. I have separated them and I tried to feed him again just now. he ate two or three pellets but that was about it. i'm going to try a few other types of food I have in the house to see if he will eat it.

    I adopted a sick fish and need help getting him healthy

    I certainly will and Thanks again. any chance this stuff would be contagious to the Clown fish? (my question is if they are doing fine, should I move them out of this tank to avoid them contracting the same illness?)

    I adopted a sick fish and need help getting him healthy

    yea, he wasn't being very helpful with diagnosing his issue. this morning before I came to work he was swimming around in the dark a little bit but still not looking like himself. tonight i'm going to try and feed him some of the garlic extreme / formula 2 frozen food. hopefully he makes it...
