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...

    Guys, I need help. I got a beautiful anemone around a week ago for my two black clown fish. I woke up three days ago to find that he had closed up and lost a tad of color.

    My flame angelfish has these whitish blotches around its mouth. I just noticed them a few minutes ago. It also has some pale, but not as noticeable, blotches on its body. Is this marine velvet? I have never encountered it before. I have a uv sterilizer which is supposed to help treat it. I will...

    I got some new zoas about two weeks ago and only a few of the dozen opened up after several days. The unopened zoas seemed to be fadeding out, shrinking, and melting away. I started reading online about zoa poxs and treating it with a furan 2, a fish fungus medicine. I got some furan and put all...

    My foxface just gave me a scare. I had recently fed the tank thawed brine shrimp, something he really dislikes. I was busy checking all the fish - you know, nose to glass examining for ich or thinness or unusual behavior. My foxface had small brown spots near his dorsal darker color line...

    My Kole tang showed up with this weird circular thing on him yesterday. He is still acting normal, eating and has good color. He has a similar thing on his head but not as bad and is a straight line not circular. I hope you guys could tell me what it is. I was hoping it would go away...
