    Need Help... My fish are dying

    need some help

    It is well known that salinity at 1.020 won’t get rid of ich. It may suppress it but it won’t kill it. increasing the temp will speed the life cycle slightly but it won’t kill ich. The temp necessary to kill ich is very high and will kill everything else. Keep in mind, ich is present in the...

    need some help

    Definitely looks like ich. Unfortunately your tank is now infected. You need to remove the all fish (I assume you just have the clowns) and treat them. You need to keep your tank fishless for 72 days to allow the ich to die off.

    I think my anemone is dead

    It doesn't look good. I can’t be sure But based on only the one pic I’d say it is heading that way. If you answer the questions below it will be easier to help. What kind of lights do you have? What are your water parameters? How long have you had it? Slow decline or fast decline?

    Curing dry rock

    You don’t cure with bleach. The purpose of curing is to grow bacteria on the rock. You can clean the rock with bleach then cure it. As to whether the coral will stay attached if you bleach the rock, probably.

    Randomly dying fish

    Was the sick Pygmy angel in the tank? In what way was he sick?

    Looking for help with my water

    It takes a long time. You can use a filter sock so the outflow of your filter goes through it to clear the water. It works pretty good. Just don’t leave it there, clean in DI water and dry until you need it again.

    Keeping Foxface Rabbitfish together?!

    Always Buy fish for the tank you have not the one you want. get The larger fish when you are set up to deal with them. Keep in mind tank mates. Anything smaller than the lions mouth will get eaten. Lions have very large mouths.
