Sorry that you lost your shrimp, not a goid timing as there is nothinh on LFS because of the virus.

Goid to hear that Vibrant worked on your battle with bryopsis. It didn't work on mine a couple of years ago, however Fluconazole wiped them out.

Keep doing what works for you. Keep on reefing

It does take a leap of faith to try something like Vibrant & fluconazole. Youíll read so many success stories but also others who experienced coral/livestock loss. Every tank is so different. Iím very hesitant to treat the tank, preferring a more ďnaturalĒ approach, and I was plenty nervous adding that first dose. But the bryopsis was so bad, I felt I had to take a chance. It does cause an imbalance in the tank. I have some cyano & a few small bits of dino for the first time, but I think I can take care of this more easily and let the tank slowly get back to a better place.

I am so sorry to hear about Snape and Blondie. I remember watching them for a long time when we came to see your tank and they were such a cool (and busy) pair!

I feel bad that you had given me medications that you may have needed for Snape.

Pictures don't do this tank justice, it is really beautiful and meticulously cared for.

Thanks for understanding you guys - my husband/daughter try to make an effort but I know my hobby is a bit of a mystery to them lol. It was hard to lose this pair. I remember I had to peek around the door the first few weeks as they would hide if I came near. So exciting those early days when everything was a wonder.

Justin, donít feel bad. The meds werenít an issue. I really feel the only chance I had would have been to get Snape a new shrimp which sadly was not possible. (Not sure what the life span of this type of shrimp is.) Snapeís symptoms were all borne out of his stress, even the clouded eye (which the Furan easily took care of). He didnít want to eat. He was young when I got him so basically he had the shrimp most of his life.
Btw howís your puffer? Hope heís well.

Warren, the Vibrant treatment reminded me of your tank because I was wondering if it would work on bubble algae. (Sorry to bring that up lol). I saw one big single bubble on a rock & left it there to see what would happen. Different algae disappeared but not the bubble, and finally I manually removed it.

Oh, that is really sad.

The puffer is good, she ended up being named Moana haha, and I say 'she' because right after Moana recovered from internal parasites, she laid eggs! Thousands of tiny eggs.

Thank you again, without the meds she wouldn't have survived.

What. Thatís fantastic. Never heard of them laying eggs before. I think my puffer pair are male/female as they donít fight, but unfortunately GSPs go into freshwater streams to lay eggs.
