 Yes,  the  clown  seems  to  have     itch.  Moved  him  to  a  quarantine  tank....  Trying  to  get  some  itch  medecines.....  The  others  look  fine.

 What  are  some  good  fishes  to  start  with,  apart  from  the  clowns  and  pakistan  butterfly  I  already  have?
 Was  tempted  to  buy  the  moorish  angel  but  read  somewhere  that  its  difficult  to  keep  them..
 Looking  for  gobies,  but  never  see  them  in  LFS.
 Need  some  info  on  anemone  too.  Which  is  the  best  to  buy?  Is  dit  dangerous  to  keep  the  carpet  anemone?
 Saw  a  couple  of  tentacle  anemone,  but  they  were  all  pinkish  in  color.  LFS  said,  they  would  become  white  once  they  get  acclimated  and  the  zooxxxxx  populated  on  them.

 Sort  out  your  tank  issues  first,  before  adding  anything  else.
 
 I've  never  seen  a  clownfish  with  ick.  Your  tank  is  not  alright  at  the  moment.

 Whats  the  need  of  going  so  fast?  its  not  freshwater  its  marine........  we  need  to  mimic  the  ocean  chemistry  which  has  been  the  same  since  millions  of  years.....  so  the  older  the  better......  i  know  marine  fishes  are  beautiful,  its  too  tempting  to  add  but  that  doesnt  mean  u  keep  killing  them  by  adding  them  so  fast.....  What  so  ever,  your  tank  is  not  yet  cycled  properly....  U  can  add  fishes  if  its  fun  for  u  to  watch  them  die  a  slow  painful  death......

 Well,  my  question  is  not  "I  am  going  to  the  LFS  immediately,   pleae  let  me  know  what  to  buy..."  What  I  am  asking  is  when  I  go  to  the  LFS  probably  in  3  weeks  time,  what  would  be  some  good  fishes  to  buy...

 What  people  are  saying  is  that  you  should  be  asking  questions  on  how  to  correct  your  current  issues  first  instead  of  asking  about  new  stock,  irrespective  of  if  you  are  going  today  or  in  a  month.

 +1.......     i  know  people  who  waited  for  3  months  before  adding  any  more  fishes  when  the  tank  was  new....  just  add  fish  like  chromis  or  damsel,  wait,  check  water  parameters,  etc.  then  u  can  go  for  what  ever  you  want....  you  have  already  added  too  many  fishes.  in  marine  the  rule  is  1  small  fish  per  10-15g....  if  u  go  higher,  u  will  require  really  massive  filteration.  if  not,  your  tank  will  never  set  and  you  will  keep  on  getting  nitrite  spikes..

 Well,  I  think  its  not  ich.  He  looks  a  lot  better  today.  He  was  quite  stressed  during  the  transportation,  which  happened  through  my  non-aquarist  friend  who  kept  the  packet  in  his  car.  When  I  got  it,  it  was  sort  of  warm  water  in  it.  Didn't  look  good  from  day  1.  He  has  started  feeding  on  pellets  after  a  week  now.  The  white  scales  have  gone.  All  that's  remaining  is  a  wound  kind  of  think  on  its  tail  which  is  also  healing.....Didn't  want  to  try  copper  and  other  stuff,  so  left  him  alone  in  the  QT.  Thanks  guys,  but  I  don't  think  the  other  fishes  are  stressed  out.  Everyone  is  active  and  eating  the  pellets.  Did  a  water  test  today  morning.  All  is  well  except  ¬20ppm  nitrates.

 The  sebae  looks  in  a  bad  shape  now.  The  wound  is  spreading  to  other  locations.  Probably  he  was  stressed  out  to  the  core.  Anyone  new  to  this  hobby,  please  make  sure  you  transport  the  fishes  properly.  The  sebae  has  been  the  victim  of  bad  transportation(partly  my  mistake  as  I  did  not  warn  the  friend  about  the  temperature  getting  high).  
 
 The  others  are  all  getting  along  well.  The  pakistan  butterfly  which  was  always  in  hiding,  is  now  in  the  open  looking  for  food.  He  loves  fresh  shrimp  the  best.  The  percula  is  more  into  the  pellets(probably  farm  raised,  not  sure  though).  
 
 Dropped  the  idea  of  buying  anemone,  till  my  tank  matures  for  another  4-6  months.
 
 Planning  to  get  some  stuff  from  US  in  a  few  months.  Anyone  has  any  good  recommendations  for  online  stuff?  There  used  to  be  a  petco  near  my  apartment.  But  they  were  all  expensive....  I  have  a  refractometer+phosphate  remover  in  mind.  Amazon  has  quite  few  30-40$  ones.  Not  sure  if  they  can  be  trusted..  For  phosphate  removal,  planning  to  get  a  Phosban/PhosGuard.  Not  owning  a  RO  unit,  I  am  almost  sure  my  source  water  has  lots  of  phosphate/silicate  in  it.

 I  may  be  new  to  marine  ,  but  have  quite  experience  in  fish  keeping.Don't  think  anyone  here  would  like  to  do  that,  nanomania.

 Tried  JBL  spirulina  today.  All  inmates  seem  to  appreciate  it.  
 The  sebae  clown  expired.  May  his  soul  rest  in  peace.  Wave  
 
 Leaving  for  Christmas  vacation  on  Friday.  Everything  gonna  be  set  on  timers.  Brought  a  float  valve  connected  via  pipe  to  the  tap  and  fixed  it  onto  the  sump.  Should  make  up  for  the  water  loss  during  the  10  days.  The  next  three  days  is  going  to  test  the  float  valve.  Looking  for  better  solutions.  Got  two  options:
 1.  Keep  a  big  bucket  of  water  with  a  small  pump  operated  on  a  1  minute  timer,  every  week  once.
 2.  Use  the  existing  float  valve,  but  connect  to  a  huge  barrel  of  water,  rather  than  the  corporation  water  tap.
