    Volitan Lion Behavior

    New to the "aggressive" side of the hobby. Just set up a 55. Tank now has a Niger Trigger and a Volitan Lion. Im just wondering what is typical behavior for a lion. Are they a typically "lazy" fish that stays in one spot or do they constantly move? The one i just put in my tank moved quite a bit...

    to the ICH pros

    this has me curious. Im pretty sure i can see hypo being the best way to kill ich - no issues there. heres my problem though. when you are getting new fish do you hypo them in the QT from day 1? I ask because i feel like you dont, that you just put a new fish in the qt while the params are...
