    Help New Tank Gone Downhill Really Quick

    I dont have my phone right now but when I get it back ill take a picture of it. His back is sort of 45 degrees to his front. He's laying on the ground rn I think he might be dead but hes in quite a hard place to get out and I cant stomach taking him out so I have to wait until my dad gets home...

    Help New Tank Gone Downhill Really Quick

    The only problem I saw with the firefish was its back, are u sure this could be from disease? I had tested all the water levels and they were all good. its just the fact that I have absolutely no tanks that I can put the clown in. The fish here are all QT'd and treated for all diseases. Thanks...

    I tested it when the clown died and it was all good, but I still changed it. I changed the water yesterday too and all the levels were fine.

    So I have a IM20 fusion with 20lbs of live rock and sand. I set this tank up around a month or two ago and things seemed to be really good at first. I initially bought a firefish which was so timid it was crazy. It would never come out and to this day it was never freely out. After a month I...

    Thank you for the help. Unfortunately I had this in mind when looking for a firefish, I was quite timid to buy one after the things I had heard but decided if I let it settle in it should be fine. At the lfs he was one of the most active and wouldn't hide. Whilst there was a tank of about 4 and...

    Do you think I should remove the firefish over the weekend? Im thinking of taking it back to the lfs, doing a water change ad then getting a goby and some CUC. Thanks for all the help?

    Thank you SO much!!! Really sorry to hear about the loss of scorch. I honestly think I may take out the rocks this weekend, see if I can find this little guy and bag him up and take him back to the lfs. Its just too much to deal with and too timid for my liking. I may then do a 25% water change...

    Sooooooo…. its been a month since I got this firefish, I haven't done any water changes yet (I know really bad,hopefully this weekend). He still hasn't gotten used to the tank. I put the lights on everyday at normal time etc... I put in some food a week ago when he came out after I put the...

    Almost a week since I got the firefish and I fed it once on Tuesday, I think, but I dont think it ate the pellet/s. It hasn't come out for more than a minute which was on Wednesday and went back in as soon as it saw me and hasn't been out since. I see it in his little hole and I look inside to...

I dont have corals yet my first stock with this little fella yesterday, I was palnning on getting some CUC and/or another small fish next weekend hopefully. After that ill be adding the clown pair. And then ill hopefully begin adding some corals. I...

    So I put in some food right in front of the whole I saw him in and he came out slowly and before I knew it he was swimming in the open! I had all the pumps turned off though and as I went to put them back on after he ate, he disappeared again lol. Could it be the flow that's annoying him? Edit...

    Its the following morning and ive turned the lights on but I cant seem to see him anywhere(its been an hour now). I haven't fed him as I want to make sure hes out and actually eating instead of just making the tank dirty. Any suggestions? should I wait and not feed him until he comes out...
