    I'll try to keep this short. Set up a brand new 125g tank (Oceanic) 9 months ago. It was up for about 2 months when the fish started itching, eventually losing 3 or 4 over the next 3 months. Two of my original fish, survived until I had to tear down the tank to relocate all the way across the...
