    I decided to post my battle with Ich, which at this point seems to have worked [ 45 gal reef tank about 5 months old: 2 clowns, flame angel, blue-green chromis ]. My flame angel got ich, so I captured him and gave him a fresh water bath (research how to do this properly). Well, the ich went...

    My Kole Tang has developed Ich. Since I really can't pull all the fish out, much less catch the Tang I have decided to try Kick Ick. I have a couple of questions. One, the directions state that skimming will reduce the effectiveness of the product. Should I keep my skimmer off for the 15 day...

    So, after having my 125 set up for 7 months, we bought a 180 and I made the move yesterday. I used 3 trash cans and 2 bins and moved everything, sand and all to the 180. It was slow going moving all the rock and sand and water. After I filled the tank up we discovered a leak on one of the...

    About a week ago I had a ich outbreak in my 125 G reef tank. I have been treating the tank with no-ich and things appear to be getting better, but I have some concerns. The medication says on the bottle, no not use with other chemicals. Does that mean NO other chemicals, or just no other ich...

Still eating and swimming and breathing fine though. My experience tells me the fish will die. Should I yank it out of the tank to avoid the...
