View Full Version : Stressed One Spot Foxface ready for DT

I have a One Spot Foxface that has completed his quarantine and is ready to go into my DT this weekend. However, my concern is he has been stressed for the last week.

He's been in his own 10-gal. QT with frequent water changes from day one. For the first 3-weeks he was doing great. But then he started acting erratic and his color would fade occasionally. There are no signs of disease and he's eating fine otherwise, but the stress is concerning.

I could keep him in the QT longer if necessary but I don't think that's going to help him. I just want to know if putting him in my DT in this stressed state won't cause problems to my other fish. I know stress can affect their immune system.

I've never encountered a situation like this so I want to go about it the right way.

My one spot was always hiding and stressed easily when in qt. He partnered up with a scopas in qt and when time to release them into the dt, i was still a little apprehensive about the one spot. To my surprise he immediately blossomed and has been vibrant and awesome since day one. They seem to be tricky at what stresses them or not. if you can give him a clean bill of health, I'd put him in.

If he's healthy, move him. He's probably just sick of being in a 10g.

I put him in over he weekend. His color came back almost immediately. He's been doing good since.
