By the way, I see these little clear white worm crawling along the tank glass. Are they a hazard? I see the Clownfishes eat them when they're spotted.

Nope. That's not the one. They're much smaller. They stick to the glass and they're clear in color. I can't get a picture of them since they're so tiny and barely have color.

I can't identify it but it looks like the picture where it states, "An Ophelidae swarmer releasing its payload." Worm Hitch Hikers About 75% down. It looks like the payload, not the worm itself. Clear and white.

Bad news guys. I woke up to a dead Tang this morning. I used a net to net it out. They can still cut when they're dead right? Because of the fins? Any suggestions you guys would recommend? I have 2 Clowns, 1 Cleaner Shrimp, 5 Blue Leg Hermit Crabs. The Clownfishes seem to have caught Ich from the Tang. I can't tell about the inverts. My tank is probably Ich infested now huh?

You need to wait at least 90 days before adding additional livestock. At this point, I would personally begin feeding garlic enhanced foods 2 times per day. I personally use Formula Two Marine Pellets by Ocean Nutrition. Assuming the ich is not advanced, a garlic supplement alone is usually enough. I would also consider the purchase of a UV Sterilizer.

If you have a very advanced case of ich, that included labored breathing and constant scratching behaviors, then you will need to treat the fish.

How advanced are the symptoms?

Oh yes, this is also a good time to remind you that you should be using a quarantine tank. For some reason this advice is overlooked by the beginner, but there is rarely an experienced hobbyist who would skip the quarantine process. For example, I currently have a Majestic Angelfish which has been in quarantine for 4 weeks. It is a beautiful, healthy fish. But I understand the value of a Q period.

I am currently using the Formula One and Formula Two Marine Pellet by Ocean Nutrition. I also purchased turbo twist uv sterilizer by Coralife. Don't know if it's any good. I wish I purchased this earlier as I have lost a Tang and one of my Clownfish.

The symptoms were pretty bad I think. The Tang was covered with white spots and died in the tank. As for the Clown, it was too, but battled it longer than the Tang. Neither survived and now I am left with one Clownfish, 1 Cleaner Shrimp, and 5 Hermit Crabs.

I do have a Quarantine Tank set up as it is bare to the bone. For the two Clownfish I didn't quarantine them because there was no other fish in the tank. As for the Tang, I don't think my uncle quarantined it. I think he just tossed it in there and when I came back from my vacation, that was when things started to look ugly. Then I bought 1 Cleaner Shrimp and 5 Crabs hoping they would help the tank. They did for the first day or two, but the Tang got sick again. I just acclimate my inverts and put them in there directly. Is it the wrong method? Or should I put them in Quarantine also?

As of now, what should I be doing? Many help. Many thanks.
