ICK & BROOKLYNELLA IN MY REEF TANK

My fish got a version of ICK! This is a deadly disease that will destroy a healthy tank in a matter of days! All of my once healty fish have died, except for 2 of them. My Yellow Tang pulled thru and seems to be making a road to recovery!

Hippo Tangs tend to get ick....My tip is give any saltwater fish that has ick you give tit a 3 minute freshwater dip....your friend .......''CHRIS THE HOBBY GUY'

Yes ...Stress does cause the immune system of the fish to lower allowing the fish to become sick....Have a great day..........your friend "CHRIS THE HOBBY GUY''

Hi Mang. I have seen your videos with the rotter and mile high. I wanted you to look into a vortex diatom filter that uses diatomaceous earth. I have seen my fish after about 2 hours running and it looks as if they are swimming in air. I know people who run it all day and they never have any problems. I only run it after I feed and after I do a substrate and water changes. This is better than any filtration method I have used. Maybe you can make a video. I think its one of the best products after a protein skimmer for a reef tank. How long does it take for sugar dosing a 75 gallon aquarium. I also this question. I like to change my aquas cape every 6 months or so because of territorial issues with the fish. That means I leave my corals on my plugs and hope they populate on their own with a few exceptions like anemones etc. Should I just glue them to the rock or keep them on plug. Do you have a propagation video and a how to on gluing them to the rocks.

+El Kabong! An easy thing to do is by gel filters. They will cut the blues out. When you record dont do it at an angel, do it level with the corals. Itll save you a lot of money. They sell it on amazon or ebay, $30 for all kinds of colors. I need to buy me some

One more thing can you give me some advice on filming my tank to where it looks so vivid and clear with actinics on. What would be a good camera that is cheap and do I need a tripod. I was looking into a budget of 150 to 200 bucks. My phone doesnt do any justice with the actinics.

You have some great ideas and you explain very good your videos. I think its about patience and try and failure. I think you 3 guys input will be very valuable because your real and you can tell that you are really like us novices. We dont have to buy all the expensive stuff to have a great tank because we are all on a budget. Thanks

Whats sup El Kabong. Ive seen that filter youre talking about. Looks cool, I like to leave my stuff a lone on frag plugs until they grow off the plug. Ive done a few videos of me fragging leathers and a NEM. Thats for stopping by, appreciate it!

but you dont change the water
915Mang
915Mang - 5 years ago
No I used the same water, 120g + of water us a lot to throw away. Also the ick will go away if you have no more fish. Its called fallow, where you dont add anything
Ram Violango
Ram Violango - 5 years ago
your problem is same to my tank when your tank wiped out did you change your water?.

Hi Ram, I just left the fish in the tank. I feed heavily as much as they would eat, and put garlic on their food so they would be interested in the food. My yellow tang and hippo tang made it. Then I left it with those 2 fish only for a few months without adding anything else. Hope that helps, I know its sad losing fish

Why didn't you quarantine all the fish after you noticed them sick??? You NEVER leave sick fish in a tank. Get them in quaretine and treat them!

M.R. Hawks - 6 years ago
You don't need medication. Do the tank transfer method. That has worked better for me than ANY treatment and causes the least amount of stress to the fish. It works just as good if not better than copper. I am sorry for your loss.

You dont always have the medications to treat the fish. I have some now, with a QT tank. Really was sad loosing all my fish at the time.

so by doing water changes  will it get some of the Brooklynella out of my tank?
915Mang
915Mang - 6 years ago
It'll take a while for it to get out of your tank. If you can remove your fish and give them medication. I didn't add fish for a long time, 3-6 months. But no, water changes will not cure it. Keep your fish eating, and raise the temp of you can. Feed Garlic, if you don't have any you can make your own. I did a video

Well, I lost my fish in December and readded new fish in February, Brooklynea doesn't have as long of a fallow period as Ich so I tested the water with a few damsels and then added the designer clowns once I knew it was safe. I got brook' from a wild Tomingi tang

915Mang - 7 years ago
Thanks Zach, sucks that you lost fish also. Have you added anymore fish to your system or are you going to wait? Im going to be starting my nano soon, so that should hold me over for a few!

im not using tech m,im using no3 po4 x now for 5days before that I was vodka dosing for 3wks

915Mang - 7 years ago
Really, 1600 with Tech M? I have noticed it has faded my algae, but I'm not at 1600, I guess because I dose manually, and only a little a day. I ended up using the scrub brush to clean some of that crap up!

Tell me about it man! Everyone was doing so good and then they where KIA. But I have my nano that I will be stocking once I get it started

Thanks Reef Raf, Ive been using the Tech M, I have plans for a UV sterilizer in the future! Its more of a preventive maintenance plan, then a cure.
915Mang
915Mang - 7 years ago
Yeah Joe, it sucks! But im already thinking about the next fish i want to get. Instead of a flame angel I want to get a coral beauty. But hopefully this disease will be gone! UV is in the plans for the future!
