Transfer 3 common clown fish and 1 big fox face fish from QT120 to Reefer350 tonight without acclimation, hope then can survive...
1) Tightened the main pump connector.
2) Checked Auto top tank and valve, make sure it's working.
3) Found the green hose from main pump to the pipe got loose connecting, put some white tape and tighten with stronger cable tie...
Yesterday and about 4 days ago, my reefer350 tank leak sensor detect leak and leak alarm sound off, both are real leak.
The leak is due to Return pump to the tubing connector loose connecting, so the water shooting up and splash out of sump tank, the leak quite serious...
Thanks to my leak sensor and leak alarm setup...!
Lucky there is people at home, otherwise even the alarm sounds off, but nobody knows, what's the point? Today I setup email alert for Leak alarm!
3 days ago, I removed the chaeto and forgot to turn on the pump, today I discovered it and opened it up, found the up 2 layers chaeto totally dried, luckily the bottom layer still submerged in the water and looking good, so I still have the chaeto Seed for the 2nd and 3rd layer...
Almost 2 years since I started the salt water tank, today I did the fragment for zoanthids coral for the first time, it's not difficult at all, but I dragged it till today...
Blue tang and magnificent fox face fish recovered very well- I am feeling good about this job: I saved this 2 fishes, well done and SINCE May/08/2020, I am feeding the fish at night myself/kids. My fish growing very slow, almost no growing, I guess due to very less feeding, now I changed my mindset, I'd like to do more water change in order to feed fish/shrimp more instead of less feeding-> less water change.
Starting from May 10, 2020, I will be feeding fish myself with kids at evening/night time.
The blue tang already sick for quite a few days, whole body covered by small white dots, today it stop eating, after work, I decided to catch it out to QT120, after suck up about 2/3 the water, very each to catch it. 1) I prepared 1 drum new salt water, so can directly drained about 60L water.2) Prepare 5 pail, then pump (external pump) out the water to pail, after about half hour preparation, the water inside tank only left about 1/3, so it is very easy to catch the fish... Good job!
Things turning into ugly again- after put in the magnificent fox face fish into 350 tank (Apr 19), I immediately noticed something wrong on the skin of fox face fish, I leave it inside isolation box, unfortunately it's ich again, 5 days later, the fox fish full body covered with ich and blue tang seriously affected, 1 common clown fish seriously affected and died...

Major fishx3, blue finx1, yellow belly x2 and one magnificent fox face fish moved into 350 from QT 120... Yellow belly didn't make it to 2nd day...Fox face fish also looks going to die- the magnificent fish very weak, drifted with the water current and suck to the wafer maker intake, cant get free from the wave maker, lucky I have a small quarantine box, so moved the fox face fish inside the box, hope it can survive.
