    Unexpected tang behavior?

    LoL, now I'm feeling it :D. I first thought it was the clowntang since he's the most aggressive. The funny thing is the smaller yellow tang is still doing fine with them. It's just weird... smh

    Unexpected tang behavior?

    Thanks guys! I had no luck of catching the purple tang but I somehow managed to get to Yellow Tang out. I put him in a acclimation box and the purple tang went crazy around that box ).

    Unexpected tang behavior?

    Thanks Jon, I will try to get him out of the tank as soon as I get back. It's going to be a pain getting him out. The weird thing is he just attack only that yellow tang, I have another smaller yellow tang in there and they're just fine... This is the weirdest thing I've ever experienced since starting this hobby...:(

    Unexpected tang behavior?

    I came home after dinner last night and found out my yellow tang was in a bad shape. He was beaten up badly. It was a total surprise for me 'cause they are all seem fine just 3 hours before. In the morning, I've realized my purple tang was the bad guy. He looks for that specific tang around the tank and beat him badly. I have another yellow tang and different tangs and they have been living peacefully together for almost 2 years. I have no idea how this kind of behavior could be developed. It just came out of no where suddenly. Anyone has any advice or similar situation? Thanks guys!

    Hopefully it has not been long since the rust and not much was leech out. It's usually just free GFO in a short time. I was so lucky that things always happened a day or 2 before I went out of town or on long vacay (CO2 tank exhausted just a few hours before I went to the beach and a blown socket just a day before I set my foot on the plane). I would recommend you to run some carbon and polyfilters at the moment. Good luck on solving that, bro!
  9. I could have done that 2 weeks ago... Lol. I used to go to Manassas/ Woodbridge area frequently.
  10. Petco usually have an Eheim in stock. I'm using one and it's pretty reliable. You can set it to minimal amount of feeding and let it keep running. Your fish probably will be underfed for a week but they are not going to die. Test the amount of food will be each rotation in a dry container first before putting it on your tank

    Low dKH and high calcium

    What's your current pH and Mg level? Low Mg level lead to the Alk & Ca imbalances. When pH is too low it would affect alk as well. A 10% water change will bring your alk up a bit without bringing up calcium. You can also dose baking soda only. But I prefer the water change method. But I wouldnt recommend doing WC more than 10% since RC has a quite high alk level (12-13). If you need some Mg solution, just swing by my place, I still have a lot left .
