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.
