    This started showing up 3 days ago. He isnt eating, and the one fin is split.

    I have started adding vitamin c supplements to try and get the immune system going. Its not possible to catch him to qt. Is there any other immune boosters I can try? Or any other advice?

    Would you consider using microbelift artemiss? I have used it successfully in the past.

    Don't know if this will help but they mention you must perform a thorough tank cleaning...including vacuuming the substrate...

    Hey man.
    Try VitaMarine-M.
    One of my Regal Tangs had "hole-in-the-head" - The one you saw on Saturday
    Been using this stuff for 3 weeks and as of Monday this week he is completely cured. :thumb up:

    Might also work for you.

    i use artemiss and herbtana together as recommended, it works briliantly and reef safe and will protect all your other fish as well.

    just remember it will make your skimmer go a little crazy so keep it off while doing the 10 day treatment and run it for an hour or 2 when you home

    Sadly Nemo died during the night.

    I never thought i'd be sad to lose a fish but this guy was with me since day 1. The other clown is clearly missing him, swimming around the host coral kinda looking where he is.... :( UGH

    I have a little clown living in my sump if you are interested.
    He never quite made friends with the others in the tank, so now he is confined to living in my sump keeping the camel shrimps company.

    Let me know if you are interested.

    Only saw this now dam, sorry for you loss. If he was eating there is a mix that I use which can be mixed with their food and has proved to be very effective for me before, the herbal stuff is snake oil in my opinion I have never had it work at all.

    All products are from Seachem:
    1. Focus : R88
    2. Metronidazole : R101
    3. KanaPlex : R101

    This stuff really works. I get it from @bryan found his is the cheapest. Prices vary about R10 with other shops....
