Usually for acclimatizing you would add abit of water, wait 10 mins, add abit more water, wait another 10 minutes, so on and so forth until the original volume of water at least doubles. For shrimps

How to get temp low? Must use chiller? Sent from my CPH1611 using Tapatalk

no2 0.25ppm now? It could have been that around the time your livestock died your nitrite was higher, much higher than 0.25. That could have been the cause. Nitrite is as deadly, if not more deadly than ammonia, and could easily kill your fish in a short time as well

Your mushrooms might be in an area with too high flow. They like really low flow and will fall off if they don't like where you placed them.

For the piece that floated away, put it in a tupperware with some rubble on the bottom and it will eventually attach to one of them. After its attached you can place it back on your LR.

How long have you had the clown? If all your water test are normal then it could just be an issue with the new fish. Definitely not normal behavior.

Where did you get your fish from? Sometimes in this hobby purchased fish are collected with cyanide and eventually die in captivity no matter how good the parameters are due to cyanide poisoning. Unless all your other fish are also dying, it might be that. If you buy many different ones from different retailers and they all still die.. then it’s probably an issue with your tank parameters.

Haix. My naso I suspect a victim of cyanide poisoning . Cos he was healthy and eating well but just suddenly died one day. And guess naso are mostly from bali or Philippines. The rest of my fishes are fine.

Sorry for your loss, Nasos are among the most endearing of tangs imo. Yeah and it’s not necessarily the retailers’ fault all the time either, cause many times down the chain we may not know how exactly our fish were collected at the source. The middlemen who buy the fish from the divers or villagers who catch them may lie and withhold information to sell their catch. After all who’d wanna buy fish if they knew they were caught with cyanide right? Still a common practice in Indonesia and Philippines. Another reason why fish from Sri Lanka and the Red Sea tend to ship better. Australia is probably the best shipper(but it’s reflected in their typically hefty prices too)

Yeah indeed. My naso looks fat and colours are good. And usually fishes which have too good colouring is usually caught from cyanide. Since they can be easily caught. Haix. But the most innocent is still the fish. Died in vain. Yeah. I will try to buy fishes from Maldives or Sri Lanka shipments now.
