    Talking Finally Fish back in the Display

    Finally after 11 weeks fallow, I have fish back in the display tank. Saturday I put back my first two fish, my Royal Gramma, and my longfin fairy wrasse, so far so good. Hopefully my display will never have ICh again. From now on all fish will be quaratined. I'm excited to finally have some movement back in there. I even picked up my new fish a metallic shrimp goby to replace my yellow watchman that didn't make it through QT, very cool fish, hopefully it pairs up with my candy cane pistol. Anyway I was stoked and had to share.

    Good luck man! Way to show some pateince. 11 weeks is a long time, when your waiting to put your fish back in their home.

    When the all get back home, share a pic?

    I managed to snap a halfway decent pic of the fairy wrasse back in his home. c6e4e22a 4cdd 5ee0 - Finally Fish back in the Display

    good to hear but ich is in everyones tank fish catch it when the are stressed our un healthy not sure why ever one thinks that QT for ich is the way to go but imo all u are doing is putting more stress on the fish & most of the time the catch agin when they get moved back from the stress of the move . like i said gl hope this dont happen to u 11weeks is a long time to just have it break out agin

    Sorry. I dont believe this to be true. Ich is a parasite it won't be in a tank if it's not introduced by a fish.

    yup...no host = no life
    It takes a long long time to build a coral reef. Step by step the reefs survive on partnerships. And the most important partners are you and I.
