To save Bandwidth, and because it is semi related to the conversation at hand, I am posting this question here....
I will be recieving a copper banded butterfly on tuesday morning from LiveAquaria.com
I know they are also prone to ich, and I have every intention of placing it in my 30g QT tank, with the other 3 fish I recieve from them.
My Question is, If a hyposalinity treatment becomes required, I assume I can just bring my QT tank, that I keep at 82 degrees, and 1.015 SG
, down to to 1.010 SG
, and keep the temp around 82-83 degrees?
Also Once the fish all look healthy, and show no signs of ich, what is the correct way to transfer them to the main tank? Should I bring the salinity up to the Main tank's 1.022 SG
, and temp 80 degrees, then directly transfer them to the main tank? Or should they be placed into a bucket and then acclimated to the main tank from the hyposalinity?
