All of my new fish friends have settled into quarantine just fine. The wrasse still seems content to sleep under some bioballs at night instead of in the nice bowl of sand I made a special trip to the store to buy for him that he just ignores… ARG! The watchman goby spends all day and night between those same bioballs but pokes out and keeps an eye on things during the day. The firefish is always out and about, but sleeps under one of the PVC elbows at night.
The fish are all eating a rotating diet of mysis shrimp, spirulina brine shrimp and live black worms.
They are currently on their second round of Prazipro to prophylacticly treat for flukes or other skin borne parasites. This will continue until 1/29 when I’ll do a water change and drop in some carbon. Then on 1/30 I’ll start the slow 10 day climb to therapeutic copper levels and then a 30 day treatment there.
If all goes well, the plan is to get them into the DT between March 18 and March 25.
