    What's wrong with my Chromis?

    Nowhere did I say that I didn't quarantine any fish prior to to inclusion in the tank, so I'm not sure of the reason for the subtle preaching.

    What's wrong with my Chromis?

    No. The first one was the only one who experienced the bloating. Perhaps it was just coincidence that it had another problem as well? I lost another one this morning, and have attached a picture. Ignore the "dots," that's algae on the side of the glass which is magnified by the camera. But...

    What's wrong with my Chromis?

    My wife JUST showed me this link while we were having dinner, and I came here to post it for others' possible use. I see you just came here as well. I now believe this to be the issue: https://www.nano-reef.com/forums/topic/402464-uronema-fish-disease-information/ I only euthanized the first...

    What's wrong with my Chromis?

    Just an update to this thread for future reference. I never figured out what the issue was with this particular Chromis. I quarantined it and tried an antibiotic treatment, but that didn't help, so I had to put it to sleep (clove oil method). BUT, whatever it was quickly spread to the...

    What's wrong with my Chromis?

    OK. I'll give that a shot. These guys are pretty inexpensive to replace, but I don't want that to determine this particular fish's outcome....it's a living, breathing animal after all. I'll try the antibiotic treatment to see if that helps. Thanks.

    API Quick-Start Issue?

    Thanks for the recommendation. I happened across a thread in another forum and think I know the answer. I realize that it takes time, and I plan on taking as much time as necessary to get it right. The directions on the Quick-Start say nothing about HAVING to add fish; it just says you CAN...

    API Quick-Start Issue?

    I began cycling my first marine aquarium a little over a week ago. I'm starting out with FOWLR with an eye towards migrating to a Reef tank in a year or so, when everything settles and I have enough comfort and experience with the hobby. My setup is a 55 gallon Aqueon with a Marineland 400 HOB...
