Hi,

Hallo, natürlich

Yes, the lay tiles and yesterday the corners silicon caulk. I ordered pipes for osmosis and pipes for tank to refuge. I ordered steel for stands for two quarantine aquarium (150 & 350 liter) and for frak tank (750 liter) too. 4 times ATI Sunpower 8 x 80 Watt, a microscope and 1.400kg salt will arrive in few days.

It gets better and better with each step, or actually, more impressive with each step!
Looking forward to its development!

Thanks, the technic done in a few days. The next big experience is to fill up the tank with SPS.

Quarantine does not run well. Got an Achilles, Naso flamengi and 10 Hemitaurichthys polylepis x zoster hybrid in there. Use Odimor to treat against ich. But come back after a few days. Will treat second round. Not happy. Displaytank with Achilles, Leucosternum, Hepatus and Sohal is free of ich. Can't find the right way. Thinking about a combination of tank transfer and hypersalinity.

The tile work is very well done indeed. How big are the tiles on a side? 300 mm? I'm using them to get a sense of the size of your fishroom.

I'm sure it is not far away the day your SPS touch the surface.

You are not considering cupramine? I've got an ich free tank as well due to this combined with prazi pro for endoparasites.

Not sure with SPS. There are periods there I have not time to do everything at the right time. Hope the technic will help me to manage this times.

Use copper in past but it is to dangerous. Later a product that contains copper. May be not strong enough. Prazi i don't need. Wholesale do this job.

Visit Dejong (wholesaler) today. Few pick ups.

2 Apolemichthys arcuatus adult
2 Zanclus cornutus small
2 Zebrasoma rostratum adult
2 Naso elegans adult and juv
1 Naso vlamengii
1 Acanthurus Achilles small
1 Acanthurus Leucosternum
1 Acanthurus lineatus

Pick up live rocks to help introducing fish in quarantine. Also a big Naso elegans well acclimated for the other tangs eating his po to improve on enteric flora. 85 Watt UV run. 300 liter natural seawater.

https://youtu.be/QtymAW7pFyY



https://youtu.be/qupVG4C9bfE

The smaller black tang chase the bigger one sometimes. I thing no real fights and no big risk. The bigger one seems to be a little bit devote. Last months no Bandits in Europe. Pick up the first two arrive at Dejong. Eating Mysis one house after introducing. Though they're different size but nearly the same. Think isn't male and female. Maybe two males because threaten a bit when encounter. Also they are in great shape and very bully. Heart about adult flagfin changing Sex. Somebody can confirm?

Zanclus cornutus in good shape and very small. Normally arrived in very bad condition and bigger in Europe. One our after introducing eaten no frozen food but picking at live rocks.

Nasos and black tangs eaten directly frozen. Also powder blue and clown tang. Achilles does not see again after introducing. Achilles are always pussies. Achilles and powder blue are very small. Hope to pair up with bigger ones in display tank. Display tank is ich free after quarantine fish about a few months. Little bit scary to quarantine rightly. Copper kill to much fish in the past. Hope to get all new fish into great shape. After this I will test maybe tank transfer. Achilles doesn't work this method because normally didn't pick up food for two days after catch and handle with him. Will see

I've denied a tiny Zebrasoma Gemmatum with literal line syndrome for 500 EUR.

Thinking about a little bit different quarantine method. Flow over 1.5 meters per second Cryptocaryon cannot settle on fish. Want to build a glass quarantine aquarium with double bottom and place a Hydro Wizard ECM 63 in there with a flow of 50.000 liter. So I will reach the 1.5 meters per second flow. Oodimium will need 5 days Cryptocaryon 3 days and fish will free of these diseases. No stress like tank transfer or hypersalinity. No problems with copper.

Somebody can say something about my plans? Is this realistic?

It seems like a very high flow rate for the fish to be in constantly. To work properly, they would have to stay in this flow for the full 5 days, day and night. I'm not sure but it seems like they would be physically stressed by this.

The TTM method is quite easy and you've got the space for it. I've just finished taking a couple of tangs through this and they did superb. I know you've thought about this method to ensure no ich. Although it takes 12 days vs 5, there is really no need for a rush as you'd likely QT them for a month or two anyway.
