Rich here... just wanted to introduce myself.
Well, I have been keeping fish on and off for many years. For the most part my tanks have been saltwater / reef. Recently my wife and I had our home renovated and I lost my entire 58 gal reef which I had going for the last couple years. (I know.. it's small, but it was mine and a lot of hardwork went into it).
Well... My 4 year old son looks at the tank every day as do my wife and I... but now, it's empty :(
My son keeps telling me he wants more fish... Nemo, Dora... and Harry (potter angel he loved to watch). In any case, I would like to do something with the tank. I'm leaning toward freshwater this time... So, thats where I am at, and thats why I found you guys / gals!
I'm off to do some searching and reading and at least one post with a bunch of questions I have.
Hi Rich, welcome to TFK! How sad to lose a tank, after putting so much time and love into it. You'll be back up and swimming in no time. :)
hello and welcome!!!
Hi and welcome to the forum. So sorry to hear about your fish loss... :(
I have to move my tanks twice in June and I'm already lying awake nights worrying about losing my fish. Can I ask how you lost them?
Hello and welcome to TFK.
well, shortly after that a tang died, then the potter angel. You could see the coral receding and slowly die, and cover with a white film, then a paired set of percula clowns and a few blue-green damsels. Normal water tests didn't show anything... everything was in range. This all happened within a span of two weeks. One thing I noticed on the clowns was a high respitory rate.
I tried a couple water changes, a few days apart... nothing. Once everything died, the only stuff that lived were the cleaning crew... crabs.
The only thing I can think of is one of the workers opened the plastic barriers after they had spray something upstairs... or dust from the work go to the tank.
Hello Rich! Welcome to the forum!
Sorry to hear about your tank. Reef tanks are hard work and are all the more enjoyable because of the work that goes into them so that must have been tough. It's really good to hear that you're sticking with the hobby. Hopefully you'll get some inspiration from our members and will be back on your feet in no time!
hello and welcome to you and your family.
i hope you'll be very happy here.
sorry to hear you lost your fish.
hello and welcome to our forum..
