I wanted to thank eveyone (especially Pasfur) for helping with my saltwater 187 gallon. I wanted to let everyone know that everything's going well. I never took any of the fish out, they all recovered very well. No signs of Ich between the sterilization and garlic supplement. I also should add that I now have a quarantine tank for new fish. Two fish were added to the display from the quarantine 2 days ago. So far both look great. No compatibility porblems or signs of disease. The tank now has:
1 Seagrass Filefish (Acreichthys tomentosus)-He loves to nip at snails as well as swimming in all the Caulerpa
1 Diamond Sleeper Goby (Valenciennea puellaris)-She set up a burrow in the front of the tank
1 Heniochus (Heniochus acuminatus)-Likes to bite me when I clean the tank
1 Pearlscale Butterfly (Chaetodon xanthurus)-very friendly and finger feeds
1 Mandarinfish (Pterosynchiropus splendidus)-He stays very fat because my parents are buying a bottle of copepods a week and adding them to the refugium
1 P.J. Cardinalfish (Sphaeramia nematoptera)-always front and center
1 Royal Gramma (Gramma loreto)-Smallest fish, but has the most spunk. Very entertaining to watch.
2 Percula Clownfish (Amphiprion percula)-Cleaning a spot to lay eggs inside a barnacle.
1 Bicolor Angelfish (Centropyge bicolor)-Eats all the grape caulerpa I put in the tank
26 Astraea Snails (Astraea tectum)-Mow down all hair algae
23 Nerite Snails (Nerita sp.) Somewhat useless, get nipped at by the butterflies and filefish, always on their backs.
1 Turbo Snail (Turbus sp.) Amazing cleaner, cleans more by himself then 5 Astraeas.
1 Nassarius Snail (Nassarius sp.)-Seems to like Nerite Snails...
1 Cleaner Shrimp (Lysmata amboinensis)-Loves riding on the pearlscale butterfly all around the tank.
