    I forgot I wanted to mention the ATO I made a while back. I've got an Aqua lifter plugged into a modified extension cord. The neutral side was cut and the leads to a float switch were soldered in to make the connection. Then I made a hangar out of 1/2" fittings and pipe. I've used this type of setup for three years and only had one float switch go out on me.

    Tank Disaster....😥😥
    I suspect Brooklynella hitched a ride and has hit my tank. Tried to pin point my mistake and I think it came in on some Trochus snails. I never put them in QT so they went straight in the tank. Turns out they were DOA.

    Couple days ago the wife fed the tank with all fish eating and well. That evening we had several abrupt losses. Check the water and it seemed there was a spike in ammonia so I did a small water change. Noticed heavy breathing on some of the fish but the Kole Tang seemed perfect. Next morning he was dead. Then I noticed this stuff on the clownfish....And it gradually engulfed both of them. Then it appeared on the pj cardinal. Skip to the end now and all the fish are in QT.
    Lost:
    male/ female anthias
    Kole Tang
    One clownfish
    Both bicolor blennies
    Blue tail damsel
    Half and half damsel
    Chromis ? Maybe

    Short Clownfish video.

    Lost the Naso, last clownfish, and a chromis. Using Furan 2 but no improvement on these guys yet. The pj cardinal is pretty bad and I suspect it will be next.

    Lost more fish. I've got the last remaining fish in hospital tanks. Did a FW dip and using Prazipro and Furan 2. The Scopas is in bad shape now. The next two days will determine if he makes it. I have a Desjardini, two gobies, three chromis, Scopas, Anthia, and a yellow damsel left. Started with 30 fish.....The chromis went quick...That was almost half.

    Scopas is Healing! I've done some more FW dips and have been rotating tanks every few days with fresh meds and clean water. The cycle was about a week between breakouts so I'm hoping another week from now all will be good. Time will tell.
