    Hi Chaps

    Just caught my regal tang from the QT to place in my DT, I've noticed he has HLLE.

    Can I place him in with the fish in the DT or will he infect them?

    It defenetely wont transfer from one fish to another.
    Most susceptible fish are tangs and the reasons can be complicated but stray voltage has been linked to this `condition`.

    Also, some types/brands of carbon appear to bring it on. Malnutrition as well, cant remember any more right now:1:

    I'd rather keep him in qt a while longer and treat him to some really good food + vitamen suppliments.
