Hello,Got all the fish over into the QT on Thursday. Left everything else in my DT but my peppermint shrimp started really bugging my bubble tip anemones and now they are completely closed up.Are they dead? Stressed? Hiding?
Sam - always something new to learn
My hubby target fed it some defrosted frozen food, it may have had shrimp in it
It's probably just balled up while it digests the food.Reason I asked specifically about shrimp was cos i wondered if it had eaten one of your peppermint shrimps
Lol well that's always possible! I have two one called pepper and one called mint, original of me I know, but only ever see one at a time so it is possible he ate one that was annoying him!Yes the QT tank is going well and I love them too! Have put light on to take a couple more pics 😁
Very pretty fishps. In that superfish filter, have a look inside the sponge and check it doesn;t have charcoal in it. I'm fairly sure that's the same filter i had a few years back and it had a little bit inside the sponge. It was like little pellets., i just tipped them out.Not normally a problem but would remove any meds/copper you try and add. 😊
Hi, thought I would put a little update on of how things are going ☺️Sad news first, I lost my male anthia and a fire fish in my QT tank but the good news is the copper power finally arrived and I slowly added it and it's now sitting at 2.02 ppm according to my new Hanna checker (wow this hobby is expensive). Remaining fish are looking happy, eating more and more active! In my DT, I got up the other day and found my sand anemone who was happily settled and doing very well where he was, went for a walk into my wavemaker So that was a pretty drastic clean up operation and very depressing, I nearl threw in the towel. The bubble tip anemones are doing well came out of hiding and seem okay. Lovely brown algae bloom is my next task to handle! Here's some pics!
There's evidence (scientific study) that raising the temp to 27C (go slow, half a degree a day), speeds the party ch cycle to 6 weeks. That will help.
