I have no questions, but I thought this might be helpful for anyone new to the marine hobby. I am experiencing a potential problem, so i thought i would let everyone live in my shoes until it is resolved. I will post daily updates and actions taken.
Sunday afternoon: A powerhead falls from the glass. The powerhead was connected to plastic tubing, which caused a spring effect. This spring action hit the live rock wall hard, causing part of my display to tumble. The corals were fine, but i had my hands in the tank for a good hour reassembling the aquarium. Interpret: STRESS ON LIVESTOCK.
Monday morning: I notice a single white spot on pec fin of my Coral Beauty Angel
. Everything else is normal. I do nothing other than observe. As a precaution, i feed a garlic supplement prior to leaving for work.
Monday evening: The spot has grown larger. No other spots. All other livestock is normal. I give the equipment a good look over. All is good. I do nothing. I feed garlic again.
Tuesday morning: The spot is gone from the pec fin. Three smaller spots on the tips of the caudil fin. The spots resemble bubbles, almost clear in color. I do nothing. I feed garlic again.
Tuesday afternoon (now): All of the spots are gone. I notice the skimmer sponge output was knocked out of position by the live rock crash on Sunday. There are many very fine bubbles being introduced into my aquarium that I did not notice before. Perhaps these bubbles are what i was seeing on the Coral Beauty? I'm not sure. So, i do nothing. And i feed garlic.
More posts to come as the situation develops. My hope is to encourage new fishkeepers to be PATIENT when presented with what appears to be an EMERGENCY.
