Re:Stuck Trigger


Hi Pete,

Well I got to the bottom of the last "Tank Raised" horses I purchased. The company finally requested more info from their supplier and found that my new additions (4) were in fact Net Pinned. They have since deceased along with two mustangs, One Sunburst, and One Northern Erectus juvenile. I am now down to 3 Sunbursts, 4 juvenile erectus and the barbouri couple. I have had no losses in two weeks. Water perameters are good (nitrates still high). I have done two 25% water changes since the last loss. This morning I noticed the male Barbouri with GBD. Tonight I began diamox treatments only to find he could not snick the loaded mysis. I found this in the search and I am now really worried. What is the most likely parasite invasion the newcomers could have brought in? I have fresh water dipped Pegasus and placed him in the horspital tank with Triple sulfa, and Methelene Blue. I added his live brine shrimp in hopes that he could snick something. If you can remember I have a 120 Gallon with trickle filter and sump system. My biological filtration is excellent and I have a trillion copepods, anthropods and spaghetti worms on duty at all times. I have incorporated peppermint shrimp, snails and micro stars for cleaning crew. I am sure that this tank is now loaded with parasites. How do I treat the main tank without losing all occupants? If I removed all the corals (alot of them), and the remaining nine horses. I still have to be concerned about killing off cleaning crews and bioload? HELP!!!
PLEASE ADVISE ALL NET PINNED IS NOT TANK RAISED and one week quarantine will not reveal parasites.
