    Here's an interesting thought: When this is all said and done, do you think the clowns will recognize/remember each other when back together since they were a mated pair? Or am I going to have to go through the pairing process all over again?

    I reckon for a short seperation you will have no worries on re introduction and I reckon they will probably stick close to each other until confidence is restored (Just a feeling on my part)

    re

    True, but with bad water it will just keep stressing him.

    I hope so! I have never done anything like this, so I really have no idea. Should be interesting.
    As weird as it sounds, after 2 hours in the HT the clown already looks loads better. Breathing is back to pretty much normal, slime coat looks good already, etc. Even had someone else come by and take a look that saw him this morning, and they agreed, so it's not just me being overly optimistic. I feel much better about my choice already.
    Thank god this decided to happen on a Saturday for once. At least I will be able to monitor things for most of the day tomorrow.

    Tangs got spots and is scratching, but breathing and eating is fine. That's why she stays in DT for now.
    Water is as follows:
    ammonia: .05
    nitrites: detectable, but not enough to get an actual number
    Trates: 10
    PO4:0
    CA:480
    MG:1500
    dKH 14.3

    Those are all 0, always across the board. That's why I know the move triggered a mini-cycle (which I already knew in advance may happen). So not much I can do about it besides ride it out. And you're right on with your comment about the water.

    As of this morning the clown is doing really well. Breathing, slime coat, and apetite has all returned to normal. Still showing some spots, but his over-all health has made such an improvement just in this short stay in the HT it's remarkable. I'm really happy with my choice on moving him.

    I'm glad your clown is doing better.

    Its precisely when I have a sick fish and the only way to get em out and into a qt is by removing 120 lbs of Lr is when I Really wish I lived in a Star Trek Universe and could just Beam em out of there. Would be a lot less stress, thats for sure.

    With a little luck and your Skill both your clown and tang will live to see there new 200gal home.

    Best of luck
