    R.I.P Nemo :-( Think he was sick from the start... he did not eat since day one, surely dont trust LFS(one of the sponsors) any more... can any one tell me what tipe of fish disease/illness this was and how do one go about if this should happen again? Any recomendations on what tipe of meds to stock up? What size tank one need to qaurintine a fish? Can it be a small tank? i used a small old goldfish tank... was the only tank to my disposal(300 x 240 x 240) Did not have any meds :-( All my other life stock looks fine, and my sailfin tang is munching like crazy... so i hope all will be fine...

    more about the clown, did not eat, however did swim around but less every day... died on the 4th day, only notice the fins like its in the pic on the 4th day after work round about 8pm... and it looked hard for the little fellow to breath...

    This sucks, my first loss! :-(

    I do believe it could be Fin Rot...or nipping/bullying by other Tankmates...OR..I know you don't want to hear this...poor water conditions...please don't be offended...it's not my intention to offened you..I did read that the others are fine, so I don't see the water as maybe being the problem, but adding the Info as it's also the cause in most cases...not all cases...nipping/bullying is a 2nd close...then 3rd would be sick/injured fish....

    Thanx for the info, dont think its nipping... I only got a Seilfin Tang and the clown with my clean up crew... Did test the water before I added the fish due to the tank is new and finished its cycle, also did a 50% water change...
