I can't tell from your pictures. Is this a rimless cube or a 4' long 90 gallon?

Good idea. My name is Aaron Krahenbuhl and I'm one of the tanks in Sandy. I'm located just a couple short miles east (up 114th south) from Bryan Bench (BenchsTanks), so that makes two great stops in very close proximity.

Well I don't know about anyone else, but I'm getting excited for the reef tour this year. I got some great new pieces from fragstock last night, and am ready to show off an LPS only tank. I'm now at 40 different LPS under a Hyrda 26 HD in a 60G cube with chaeto and carbon for filtration. Feel free to see more details on my tank thread: http://utahreefs.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=81750&title=60g-cube
If that is not enough to get you over, I'm not above bribery. I will have several door prizes that I will be randomly giving out throughout the day. These include a couple CA supplement bottles, 1/2" random flow generator (RFG) loc-line nozzles, frozen and dry foods, several pounds of dry rock, striped candy cane frags, and a 250w Eheim heater (don't need a heater, well this bad boy is so large it also doubles as a home defense system in the form of a bludgeoning stick).
Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow!

Good luck everyone.  I wish I could have joined, because my tank looks amazing at the moment, but I have a charity event I'm attending Saturday.  

Boo! I have never tried so hard to get a system on the reef tour! Did you see how many hosts there are up north? I'm coming to your house anyway! What time works for you?

P.S. Don't forget my birthday. LOL

General Help : setting up QT

There are plenty of cases of ich going away on its own. That post says that if that is the case, it was likely that it wasnt ich or the fish was healthy enough to resit it until it died out over a long period of time. I will say that for every "my ich just went away" story there is a story that the ich went away and came back more violent than ever and killed the fish. Most the time it is not all of the fish that die, just the most sensitive.  There is a risk to every treatment. Hoping it will go away has a greater risk in my opinion but I wont say that it never works. I had the space to actively treat the fish so I did it and it worked.

That post does have some interesting information. It was talking about how researchers could not keep any strain of ich for more than 11 months without loosing the strian (possibly due to lack of genetic diversity) That means that if no new fish is added for a year then any ich will be gone. This is good to know because sometimes healthier fish can keep ich going in their gills and it is the new fish that shows it the worst. I want to keep a fish that is known for being an ich magnet and I knew if I had it in my system it would ensure the likely death of that fish. I chose to actively treat the fish. The hardest part was getting everyone out, and having an empty tank for 8 weeks but I am glad I did it.

This was my main concern when I concerned qt. I didn't want to have the physical symptoms that I could see to disappear but have the fish suffering because ich was affecting their gills. I think I'm going to keep an eye on the tang and the other fish and if things are getting noticeably worse I'll let it run its course. Does anyone have an opinion on whether letting the fishs immune system fight ich will make it more resistant to it in the future?

I know that fish treatment is not always easy but I would say that it is better than just hoping they will pull through. Ich thrives in the gills of a fish and so it can go unnoticed very easily and re occur later on. The fish that will suffer the most are fish with a thin slime coat.  Here is an post that talks more about ich http://www.reefsanctuary.com/forum/index.php?threads/marine-ich-myths-and-facts.23132/ . I chose to pull out all of my fish when one of them got ich. The small timid ones went in a 30 gal long and the large ones went into a 55 gallon. I had 3 tangs, one angel, and a butterfly fish in that 55 gallon for and ammonia never spiked when I changed out 30% every week. Cupramine did a good job and the tank sat fallow for 6 weeks now we are all good. It was not that hard to do. The QT tanks only had pvc and were not cycled in advance. There was no light in the QT (just light from the room).

Mainly reef talk, but it just depends on where the conversation naturally goes.
