I just need to vent! What can I say...... I either have some really bad karma, extremly bad luck or a plague struck my tanks! Oh ya I forgot to mention I did the ultimate NO NO :frustrat:. About four months ago my girlfriend got a gift card to Petco ("Petco....its the Africa of the fish world".... everything has some sort of disease). She wanted to buy some new fish (we didnt need anything else). We went to a brand new Petco and looked at their fish. She picked out a lemonpeel and flame angel. We decided to come back in a week and if they were still there and looking healthy we would buy them. We came back and bought them 7 days later. At the time I was running two Q-tanks (a 12 and 15 gallon) and these were going to be the first fish in them, ever. Three days later both fish had velvet and died... I did everything I could. My GF was pissed and she made Petco take them back (she brought in water samples and pics of the Q-tanks with her). She agreed with the manager on some new fish. He told her what day they recieved the new shipment so we could pick up the fish right after they showed up. I cleaned both Q-tanks and replaced the water.The shipment showed up a about 10 days later. My GF brought home another flame, a blue hippo and a sailfin. In a week they all had velvet. I tried everything copper, fresh water dips, lowered the salinity, less light, garlic and marine max. They all went to fishy heaven. \r\nSo... no more Petco fish! I tore down both tanks, I threw away the sand and rock then bleached everything. I set up the 12 gal. Q-tank only and let it cycle. We then bought a yellow eyed tang. It did great after a month in the Q. So I transfered her in to my 55 gallon reef (tank has a mandrin, strawberry psudocrombis and an aggressive clown & coralbanded shrimp). She got picked on and didnt live. My CBS and clown wont allow me to put anything new in that tank. My CBS has killed two shrimp and as of this morning is responsable for killing the psudocrombis. My psudo went in to this little cave of my CBS's and he tore her apart. She got stresses and caught ich. I couldnt catch her to put her in a Qtank (my GF and I tried for three days). My mandrin and clown show no signs of ich yet so everybody keep ur fingers crossed. Im affraid my mandrins food supply maybe getting low though. Shes kinda getting skinny. I hope shes not getting stressed with that ich hanging around in my reef tank. \r\nNot to mention my tank overheated while I was on vacation over memorial day claiming some corals, inverts and a re sea star. Oh and... my keyhole also died from popeye in my Qtank this morning. \r\nIm extremly discouraged right now. No more fish for a couple months. Im going to tare down the Q today and bleach/ boil everything. Im not too worried about my clown he will let me catch him if hes sick. I am worried about my mandrin ill never be able to catch her. I havent told my GF about the keyhole or psudo yet. She doesnt take this stuff very well. She loved that psudo, we have had it since the begining. It was her baby. Anyways im done whining now. Thanks for listening.
