sorry to hear of the departure of a cool fish "bucky tang" . Karma for your loss dood
The place deathco buys there stock from is the same place the quality LFS here buys from, its just that the deathco tanks are not taken care of and once they get a parasite in there system, they never take care of it, so every other fish that is every introduced to their systems get the parasites.
Well with a company name like Death Co. What did you expect. Sorry for the fishes untimely demise
BuckieTang did not come from deathco.
Oh Sorry that name just sent up a red flag to me, I didn't read the whole Post. Sorry for your loss John
How big was the gold rim tang? They are a nice fish.
I'm sorry for your lose, I hope that you dont lose anymore.:-[
He was about 3", I got him when he was about 2"-2 1/4", still have the juvi stripes when I got him. Had just started showing the orange stripe in the top fin.
As of right now, my methods for the QT are working. The female clown looks a lot better and the male looks perfect the coral beauty looks good too. I plan on keeping them in the QT for 6-8 weeks minimum. I am using cupramine along with hyposalinty. The salinity isnt to low right now cause I am still adjusting them to it, its 1.015. After the intial 14 day treatment with cupramine, Im doing a 50% water change and dropping it down to about 1.012, then waiting a week and treating with cupramine again and dropping the salinity down to 1.010. Then everything should be fine after that. After all treatments, I am transfering the 3 fish to a 40g holding tank and then work on stocking the QT with new fishies. Observing the new fishies for a minimum of 4 weeks and treating as needed.
As they say..."nothing good happens fast in a reef tank."
That sucks, But I am glad that you were able to save some of your fish.
I am sure you already know this but before you but your fish in the holding tank don't forget to slowly acclimate them back to there normal salinity
