    Hey I know you guys do not mess around. Take no chances but i guess you have to do what you have to do. A fresh water or low salinity bath will kill of a lot of stuff as well... chemical free .

    Sometimes fish just die. I’ve lost my fair share. I’d rather kill a few than let velvet into my tank.

    I really like my fish and feel bummed out when I loose one by accident or age. When a coral passes I usually really don't care. I accidently introduced a bad virus that made my fish scratch or worse last spring. I made sure it will never happen again and with the summer heat the bad bugs are all gone. Junior Emperor is doing fine but the challenge will be when he becomes an adult and have him not get lateral line.

    I take it personal when I lose a fish. I feel like what could I have done to prevent it from happening.

    Alright so ill throw myself under the bus here. i know QT is a big deal but its something I dont normally do for fish. All my incoming corals get dipped, scrubbed, and set out to rest before hitting the DT but man I just run into so many issues with the whole fish and QT tank situation. Ill run hospital tanks for sick fish but iv just never been able to come up with a successful QT procedure and setup. I will admit my situation has changed now and I do have more room so iv been looking into converting my old Biocube 29 into my QT / Hospital tank but again the hassle is getting to me. Any thoughts on how I can get something easy together for it?


    Also to hopefully save myself some grief before I purchase any fish I typically observe it multiple times over a good 30 min to hour period over a few days / weeks. I know its kinda a crap shoot but it makes me feel better about it lol.

    As long as the fish look good, are eating good, just throw them in the display.
