    Copper is a toxin that I would only use in the rarest of cases (velvet infections of fish I can’t use CP with). It is not really good for fish.
    Praziquantel is known to impair a fish’s appetite, one of the reasons why I don’t use it as a prophylactic treatment.
    Also, one week of treatment won’t do much and that “rescue move” into your main system (assuming the refuge is not isolated) has now put all your existing stock at risk to catch whatever this fish died of.

    As for a Queen Angel being cyanide caught – educate yourself! There is no cyanide or other poison fishing in the Caribbean.

    Any live fish is a risky buy – always! Captive bred fish included!

    BTW: Queen Angels are likely to nip on SPS and LPS, so this fish dying may have saved you a lot of grief (assuming you didn’t contaminated your system with a disease)

    Okay going to lock down this thread before things get uglier.

    Small business local fish stores cannot afford to have 100% guarantee return policies. I dont know of any stores that provide refunds/trades. If they do, its money they're willing to lose to make customers happy. On top of that, most local fish stores are hurting financially during the summer period.

    Ive had nothing but amazing results from Aquatic Collection fish. Ive bought 3 fish from them.

    Lessons learned:
    • Always be careful when buying fish no matter from where (in store, in dude's garage, online).
    • Ask about their return/exchange policies before buying.
    • Ask about where fish came from.
    To respond to Sponsor Concerns, every member has the right to write a review on their good or bad experience with a sponsor.

    Its not the BAR's BOD's responsibility to censor bad reviews or good reviews. Its the communitys/clubs opportunity to stick up for their favorite sponsors. As you can see there are plenty of members who have stuck up to Aquatic Collection.

    I think this member went a little overboard on his negative review yelp bomb but this is his review of Aquatic Collection.
