As a pelagic zooplankton feeder, no.
I totally misread the question.
Pretty much all inverts will be safe from a flasher.
Ok perfect. That's what I thought I was just wanting to confirm
Thanks. I appreciate all the help and advice you and @eatbreakfast and some others have been providing in this thread.
Good morning everyone. I woke up to sadness this morning- my orange back passed away. Looking for any feedback if I did something wrong to cause this.
On Wednesday I set up my 10 gal QT again:
- HOB filter with (unseeded) small sponge
- power head
- small container of sand and small rock from my DT- I was afraid of lack of biological filtration and was going to take these items out if I treated with anything
- two PVC pipes
- added Seachem Stability
- used fresh salt water to match SG and temp of DT
Thursday: he looked bright and alert (when he came out for feeding- otherwise always hiding) in the DT but something was still not right with him (per my last threads). I also did notice a small white spot- didn't look like ich, but I don't know why I say that. For some reason I didn't just think "ich" immediately. He came up for feeding immediately like normal. I caught him during feeding (no problems and best low stress catch I've ever had). I acclimated him to the QT and put him in. Added more Stability.
He looked terrible from the second he went in the QT. Was blown in the current, breathing hard, tail clamped. I knew he was most likely not going to make it. I covered the QT with a towel to try to minimize the stress. This morning he was dead.
I am really sad about this as I would never want to cause harm to any animal, but if you could give me your feedback so I don't make the same mistake twice, that would really be appreciated.
Side note, I have no clue how I am going to catch the adornatus :-/ Also, do you always treat every new fish with prazi and metro? Can you use them together at the same time, or use as separate treatments?
Is it normal for wrasse to eat nori? My Halichoeres cosmetus wrasse was watching my coral beauty picking at the nori sheet and must have thought....I'm having some of that, he hovered around the clip for a bit watching my CB fill he boots and then started taking chunks and eating the nori, now my Halichoeres chyrsus spotted my cosmetus wrasse eating the nori and he too is starting to investigate..... my tank is well fed with 2 sometimes 3 feedings a day
All of my Halichoeres wrasses eat nori except for my H.chrysus. In fact all of my wrasses will eat it. The only fish I have that won't eat it is my Copperband Butterfly.
Perfectly normal IMO.
How are Macropharyngodon ornatus wrasses considered as far as being integrated into a group of other macropharyngodon wrasses?
I find that they are better suited to being added to a group later. They can be aggressive toward new leopards.
I've only ever gotten my hands on one, and added her to a tank with a bipartitus (f) and a geoffroy (f), and she was bullied pretty hard by the (slightly larger) Potter's.
Any have a good source for rare leopard wrasses? I'm looking for chaoti and kuteri specifically. Thanks!
Pacific island aquatics may. He posted a list of new stock a week or so ago
LA has had kuiteri the last few weeks.
Yes, you can use them at the same time; API's General Cure is a prazi/metro mix.
Using such is always a part of my QT process, and many other aquarists do the same.
Is the prazi in API's General Cure as effective as just using straight PraziPro?
Do you get the same amount of meds. Following directions of course.
Following directions, General cure is just a touch weaker.
2 mg/L with General Cure
2.5 mg/L with PraziPro
Does this picture make my wrasse look fat?
Why yes, yes it does!
I miss my H. chrysus. I gave him to a friend when I moved.
Haha, I LOVE! What a cutie! A fat fish is a happy fish! At least that's what I say! lol
I have a 4' 120G with a Lubbocks & Angular Flasher. Any other reasonably priced reef friend wrasses wrasse recommendations?
