Re:H. Reidis are sick, H. Erectus are fine


Dear Pete,

Thank you so much for your thoughtful response. I do really appreciate all of the time and consideration you put in trying to help solve my issue!

Since you suggested that the use of ozone might be a source of the problem, I am going to stop using ozone for now and switch over to a UV sterilizer. (I have been using an ORP controller with the ozone and have been running the outflow through carbon, but I suppose their could still have been some residual ozone working its way into the main tank from the sump).

I also got a hold of the Sanolife MIC-F product that you suggested and started using it today (probably a good idea with the switch to UV anyway). So I am keeping my fingers crossed and hoping to see less huffing and occasional "coughing" among the Reidis and Ingens in a few days. I still do not understand why my Erectus and Comes are not troubled by this issue issue…but of course I am very glad to see they remain in fine health.

Again, thank you so much for all of your ideas and suggestions,
