Introduction

Hey all

I've read that this hobby is all about keeping and maintaining water, you just happen to also keep fish and coral in it.

So on that I have been keeping Saltwater for 5 years now, but only recently I have been reading up and learning so much more about this marvelous hobby. I sometimes look back at my previous tank (Red Sea Max 130) and wonder "how on earth did anything survive?" Well not everything always did... "what do you mean I have to feed my anemone?" Sigh

I cant wait to see how my tank evolves (patience Mark, Patience) but thankfully with all the photo's and profiles on AuaticLog there are certainly plenty of ideas and inspiration, so thank you for that.

Only 1 spot on the tail of the Blue Tang, and 1 spot behind the gill on the Purple Tang. Will continue with the MEDIC.

The Female Clown's right Fin appears torn and she doesn't use it.
Starting another course of PolyP Lab MEDIC. Confident this course will remove the last of the white spot.
Spoke too early, found a few spots back on my Blue Tang. Doing large water change and waiting a few days before starting up another course of PolyP Lab MEDIC.
Finished the course of PolyP Lab MEDIC. No visible signs of White Spot for 3 days now. Fingers crossed this has worked.
Ich! Well I suspect it could be. My Blue Tang and Purple Tang both have a few white spots (that wasn't there previously). Will dose with 'PolyP Lab Medic' and monitor.
Starting 10 day PolyP Lab MEDIC program.
