Update on a video just taken on the new setup - 12G Display Tank (DT) and 12G “Sump” Tank.
Although my KH is kind of low at 5.4, so far the Zoas are doing ok. I am looking at to raise the KH level and hope that will not affect the Zoas.
I certainly hope so, if my Varios fails then I gotta go buy 4D lol.
While I would agree SAS fishes are generally healthier than other LFS, the risk of white spot/parasite is not zero.. I believe they do use therapeutic copper in their tanks too, which suppresses but not necessarily kills all ich and other parasites, etc. Then if suay and actually the fish has suppressed ich, etc, when you bring home it all comes out. In fact I got one fish I bought and QT with another reefer for 2 weeks, still kena I *think* some kind of parasite. Very minor and it seems like on and off though. Plus the fish is healthy and doesnt seem to be affecting other fish. So just monitoring for now.
Actually if you have another tank it would be nice to do QT, for QT-ing fishes only you don't need a chiller. I do understand the hassle though. But then again your tank running UV should be added insurance too, I've been thinking of adding UV to my tank too but still thinking.
And yea for equipment I want to buy, I usually google the model for reviews first. So can see what other users say in the other worldwide forums too.
