Tang in my tank

Posted 03/20/2011 at 05:58 PM by saltjohnswharf

I am getting sick and tired of the so-called Tang debate. It seems everyone with a 90 gallon tank has stuck a Tang in there because their tank met the minimum tank size requirements posted online. Tangs cover a large area of the reef everyday and do not enjoy being confined.

When you get a new dog do you just tie it in the yard and throw it some food and water as needed? Sure it looks fairly healthy. If the dogs health could be judged by water parameters, as a fishes health can...

Additional Disease Treatment Information

When I was doing research on treatments, I found that Quinine products were the first medications used in many tropical fish ailments -- especially marine fishes. What happened in the USA is that the real good ones became only available by prescription. This is not something most hobbyists could get their hands on.

Now, some off the shelf medications do contain some quinine ingredients in low quantities.

Chloroquine diphosphate was the choice medication for treating...

Why put lime in your ATO?
It's called 'dripping kalk', from the German word for lime. It's appropriate for anyone with clams or stony coral, ie, a tank that sucks up calcium faster than weekly water changes can supply it.

This is why stony coral keeping is a lot easier than people think it is---easy, as in, "very little work"...as in, "actually far less work than keeping a FOWLR."

First you need an ATO [automatic topoff]. Everyone does who...

Quarantine (my opinion)

Q: What about corals, inverts, algae, and live rock?

A: Whle I feel that the risk is very low unless they are coming from an infected tank, you can set up a separate QT...
