  1. Fish Disease Treatment
    Has anyone ever seen a fish (black ocellaris) stuck at the top of the water column upside down? No signs of distress or visible disease. Not breathing heavy. Just upside down. I tried turning him right-side up and putting him down further in the aquarium, but he very quickly ends up upside down...

    I bought a filefish a week ago and since yesterday it randomly swims sideways and will spin in a circle. Any suggestions on what i can do to help it?
  3. Hitchhikers and "ID Please"
    Found this on my clown over the weekend. She doesn't seem to be acting weird and is eating normal, feisty as ever. No one else in the tank has anything that looks like it and everyone is very healthy. Could it be a pinch mark from an emerald crab? I know it's not ich or the lymphblahblah...

    Continued from my post in New to the hobby....... Everyone was transferred Wednesday night. Yesterday the flame angel had a huge breakout of spots and the Scott's still had a few spots, but everyone was doing well. So I started to add Cupramine. I added 2/3 of the dose around 3 o'clock. Tested...

    Hey all. Purchased a rather amazing piece of wall style E. Divisa (Frogspawn coral) last week and since then it's become infected with brown jelly - possibly due to transport though I was quite careful. Purchased the coral on Saturday 4/11 and the first notice of brown jelly was Monday 4/13 -...

    My flame angel has several white spots on face and noticed one on back closer to head. Is it ich or something else? Need to be able to treat quickly if possible so I don't want to order something online. Please let me know what would be a good medication for it that I can get locally. Thanks

    This morning one of my clowns was swimming erratically (he seems to have calmed down in the last few minutes since netting him and taking these pics, and is back hanging out with the other clown in a cave - this is their dark cycle; I have my lights on a reverse light cycle, fyi). I flicked on...

    My newest addition to the tank has popeye, it is a redfin butterfly, it is only one eye, at first I thought his eye was missing. My purple tang has been harassing him since he has been in there, I feel bad for the poor guy, anything I can do to help him? I read its best not remove him as it...

    I recently had to do some re-arranging in my DT. I was handling a piece or LR mostly covered with some green polyps. As I was relocating it, I felt discomfort on my thumb starting to happen. Almost like a bee sting. I washed my hand thoroughly after temporarily placing the culprit poly/LR down...

    I am in the process of taking things out of my 90 gallon to prepare for the 165. These fish I don't think I want in there, just not where I want to go with the new tank. The elegant leopard wrasse has been in the tank about a month. First night he came in and ate frozen mysis shrimp, still...

    For some reason my fish got some white spot on them. It look like ick to me. I have ten fish in a 200 gallons tank in the basement. Couple of the fish do not have white spots on them. If it was ick, what I have to do now? Please help I don't wanted them to die on me. Thanks for yours time and help.

    I have recently gotten into saltwater after being into freshwater for a long while now. Ive got a 60 gallon tank with a 15 gallon refugium, skimmer, and uv sterilizer. The live rock I came across had a mojano infestation, so after the tank cycled the first fish was a raccoon butterfly fish to...

    hey everyone so i got back from a few days away to find my green trumpets looking a bit under the weather. A few of the heads seem to be a bit shriveled up, there's some brown gunk around the heads and i'm seeing what looks like small little "twigs" poking out all over them. I've head this frag...

    My 5" Blue Hippo tang just jumped out. He avoided the canopy and made it through the small opening in the back. After a 4' fall, he hit the ground and was out of water for about 1 minute before I could scoop him up and get him back in. He is in hiding now. Any suggestions on how I can...
