Gutted.  I've lost all but one anthias.  Turns out, there are reports of them not doing well with Chloroquine Phosphate, so I suspect it's that.  Lost four, so did a big water change.  Was going to add more CP, but read about possible issues, so I didn't add it.  The remaining three seemed ok, but a week later and I've lost 2 more.  I've done another big water change, so hoping there is nothing much left in there, and will prob do another tomorrow  :umhum:

Ah, bad luck :( that's a shame.

I wonder if anyone's made a list of what fish are compatible with CP, copper etc?

For copper, yes.  But not seen much for CP.

It's only about 40L.  I do have some carbon, so will add some - can't do any harm

Few pics
The torch just came out of quarantine, and was resting on its side and squished a few polyps - hoping they'll recover soon. Testing out LPS with my angel. 90% sure it was the angel that ate all my zoas now, as I also added a few zoas with the torch, and they've already been knocked down, and rolled about on the sand. I lost all my LPS quite a while ago to flatworms, but have been LPS free for a while, and have had my sixline wrasse in there to keep any pests at bay. Finger crossed!

Looking good Graeme 👍
There's a fine line between success and failure like there's a difference between surviving and thriving and we are all striving for a thriving success.

Thanks:
