    So I have had a small (about 2 inches) hippo tang that I got from my LFS about three months ago. He was in their tank for 1-2 months and was ich free at the time I picked him up. He spent 6 weeks in my QT tank during which he showed zero signs of any illness. Low and behold I pop him in my DT...

    So I recently bought a blue tang for my first SW tank and I learned a very hard lesson in why to get a QT tank, poor little guy only made it 24 hours :(. My tank was cycled so I assumed that would be good enough but now I am reading that a lot of people are saying that your tank needs to be...
