    Hey everyone! I've decided to make a Quarantine/Hospital Tank for my FOWLR 520 Litre Aquarium. I've done lots of research...asked many so called reef experts and I found out that there is not one direct method on how to set up Quarantine/Hospital Tank. Therefore, here is what and how I'm...

    So I think I am going to be doing a rebuild of my 120 gallon reef here soon. A few months ago I had a major outbreak of disease in my tank, and having no QT I was forced to watch and wait. As a result I lost half of my fish. With this rebuild I don't want that to happen again so I think I am...

    Had a question regarding a 20 gal qt tank. It's been up and running for a week. Put 2 fish in today. How fast would I see ammonia start to rise. I used 10 gallons of water from my DT to help start a cycle and have fed it over the past week but still have not detected any ammonia, trites or trates.

    Hi everyone. So I'm fairly new to keeping saltwater fish (<1 year) so bear with me. I want to set up a Q tank because I've been reading about how important they are and I think my clownfish have ich so I need a hospital tank. The clownfish are eating and acting normal but they seem to have a...

    As previously posted my new hippo tang or foxface brought me my first ich breakout. I knew better after only QT'ing them for a short period and it's bitten me in the A! I've done enough research to know I haven't done this right and it's due to space and number of fish but here's the situation...

    I had an Ich outbreak last week and took apart my tank yesterday to catch my blue chromis, finally. But when I put him in with my clown yesterday I noticed a new white spot on the clown. Anyone know what it is? And are the 3 meds in the picture okay to mix together?? Also is the salt level okay...

    As some of you know, I had an illness that wiped out most of my display tank fish. (marine velvet??????) On the first of this month, I moved a surviving pair of perculas to a QT tank. I treated them with malachite green and hyposalinity. They seem to be fine now. I'm leaving for the Florida...
