    I have a 75 gal tank with a marineland tidepool filter. It has some cermic biorings, carbon, and a filter pad. I also have a sea clone protien skimmer.

    The problem is that i could not get a cb bimac for a few months so i got a really nice lionfish, then i got a tessalated eel, saddlebutterfly fish, and a harliquin tusk fish. Well the butterfly brought ick in and i did not want to lose $400 in fish so i added a bunch of rid-ich. Almost a whole large bottle.

    Well most of the fish ended up diying from the ich or the medicine. The eel jumped out. So now i have an empty tank again, but can i still get an octo?

    I am thinking not because there is still a blue tint at the seals and some of the plastic so i think the medicine is still in there and it might kill the octo because they are so sensitive. Let me know what you think. Thanks for your time, Jake.

    HI Jake,

    I'm not familiar with the med you used but if it has any copper in it then your tank is now useless for an octopus. Sorry. But the smallest amount is fatal
