There are several sources with different info. Some says 1.019 some are 1.013 and 1.009. Well as long as it works just go for it.

Most sources I have seen quote 1.008-1.009. I have seen a site or two that said 1.010. I do not ever recall seeing higher. I do think that Ich can survive in higher, so if the idea is to kill that parasite, then i would drop it the extra just to be safe.

Todd I haven't either. I like for him to post the site where he got that information that 1.019 is acceptable for killing ich that is totally wrong information.

Here is one that says between 1.012 to 1.016. But Todd has got the point to play it safe by using the lowest acceptable range of 1.008 to 1.009.

Actually those measurements are in ppt, not SG. The conversion of 12-16ppt is SG 1.009 to 1.012

In the artical you posted He's telling you to maintain a level of 14ppt which is 1.011 which is still to high

Yeah, I plan to leave them there for 4 weeks, then transfer to my display. The only problem is going to be tangs. There is no way to have a quarantine large enough for them, at least not at my house, but nothing else is going in without it. That Marine Velvet is bad news.

That only affects ick though, copper is the only treatment for marine velvet.
