Fish included 2 true percs, 1 blue/green chromis, 1 mandarin, 1 orchid dottyback, 1 dual spot blennie, and a yellow eye kole tang. the kole tang I am sure is who brought the sickness into my tank. Against...

    I recently bought a percula clown fish that had brooklynella from what I could tell. The fish died about 2 days after I got him. I had an existing percula before I got the new one and he caught brooklynella too. How long should I wait before I get a new fish? Should I start with maybe a...

    Hi guys, This is my first time posting in a forum ever and am after some opinions. So I purchased an ocellaris clown (TR - I think) and had it by itself for about 2 months without issue. I then bought it a smaller wild boyfriend and both seemed fine, they would swim together but the new one was...

    So I had my first ever Ich or Brook out break since owning a reef tank. I've had saltwater fish for about 4 years now and reefing for about 1 year. It started as Ich and looked like a velvet at the end. Well I've lost 3 fish now to it and I think I think I may lose 1 or 2. While I have...

    Hello everyone, Alright, so i started my reef tank with a clarkii clownfish. He was beautiful and amazing. After some time i bought a bicolor angelfish, from another fish store which should be very good. But then it started to get white spots. I thought it was ich at first, so i fed them...

    I picked up a pair of clowns (false percula) this Saturday, by Sunday afternoon I noticed one had a severe case of what looked to be ich, upon further research I am convinced its brooklynella. By the time I noticed it he seemed ok just coated on one side with the mucas looking slime. I started...

    Hi everyone, unfortunately I have just lost (2 days ago) a common clown to what I'm pretty sure is brooklynella. I currently only have one other fish in my tank, a red firefish who seems to be doing fine. I also have a cleaner shrimp, sand sifting starfish, hermit crabs and several soft corals...

I flushed the clownfish already so pics aren't possible, but the clown looked to be sugar coated, kinda pale, and...
