I am in the 7th week of a 8 week fallow period. The fish are supposed to go back in the pool this weekend.
Also back in July we came home from vacation to find one of our Clownfish missing. Now that this is set up, here is my problem.
I decided to clean my built in overflows tonight and inspect the plumbing, basically do a little house work before they all go back in the weekend. I take off the cover, shine my light in and lo and behold I see a Orange, white and black streak!!! The missing clownfish somehow had gotton in there. I never thought to look before, the holes are way too small, he must have jumped.
Now don't get me wrong, I am glad to see him, but I have 2 problems.
First off, he obviously need to go into treatment for ich. I have a ten gallon that I am treating a new lawnmower blenny in with hypo. The other 2 qt
tanks are done with treatment and ready to go. He needs to go in with the blenny, but I am dropping the spg (it is down to.012).
Can I just slowly acclimate him to this? Or do I need to bring up the spg before placing him.
Also, I cannot put my fish back in, how much longer should I leave them out? This sucks, I am tired of running buckets and my fish are very bored. I was thinking 4 weeks (already been 7). What do you think?
