Aquarium Update and Help Please🙏
I added a Moorish Idol and Blue Tang last Saturday.
A couple of issues:
1) The Moorish Idol won’t eat. I know they are temperamental and they are hit and miss for surviving in an aquarium but thought I’d give it a go. I’ve tried Hikari Marine-S and Hikari Seaweed pellets, flake, brine shrimp, mysis and black worms but not interested. No LSF’s had any sponges either😔
Any ideas how to get him to eat? has anyone got any tips?
2) On Monday I switched the lights on and noticed both new fish had white spot (ICH). It seems they must have been stressed out from introduction to my tank. The Blue Tang is still feeding and going strong but the Idol is still not feeding and thinning out. The Idol today has dropped all its spots and the Tang now only has a few left.
I got the Polyp Labs Medic and giving it a go. Max dose for 20 days and it’s supposed to rid your tank of parasites and it’s reef safe. Day 2 now with dosing and so far so good. I’ll keep you posted!
How many of you guys rock a Yellow Clown Goby?! These little guys are super cute providing that arn’t a polyp nipper! Some can cause havoc In a SPS populates nano where they may not leave a noticeable mark in a larger reef tank.. that being said every fish is different and it’s luck of the draw! (Unless you have a softy tank.. then your safe!).
