    Talking New Yellow Eye'd Tang

    So i picked up a new tang ( Yellow Eye'd ).. he is in day 1 of the Quaritine.. All i use for QT'ing my fish is to keep them in a plain empty 20G tank with just a powerhead and a Heater.. I do treat the tank with EM2 tablets and Quick cure..

    now i do this hopfully for only 2 days.. What im really looking to see is that he does not go into shock... and to ensure he is eatting. If he is fine after 2 days.. and there are no aparent signs of anything.. Then i will move him into the tank after a nice hardy meal..

    Looks exactly like the one I just lost...
    He was a great fish. Voracious algae appetite.

    Good luck!

    I'd tone down those lights substantially and perhaps put a newspaper or towel in front of the tank to give it a chance to get used to the surroundings.

    Best way to acclimate new fish in a tank is to turn out the lights for a day or so ....

    Van,
    If he turns out the light, how is he going to read the newspaper you said to give him to pass the time?
    I didn't know that reading calms fish down??????:wha?:

    Vince,
    What happened to yours?

    As for Vince ... I'm now convinced the evil pug is peeing in the tank and causing those ammonia spikes .... :
