I just got a regal tang and i m confident that it will do well as i have taken a number of measures to make sure that the fish does not have a breakout of ich. So far i saw him itch vigorously for a day and i put him in a qt
for two weeks. I just put him back in and he is doing great!
Here are the ways that i m preventing ich in my seemingly inefficient 30g tank. Going to get a larger 125g tank once my finances get in check (i m only 14- cut me some slack)
1. UV1 Sterilizer
2. Nori soaked in Garlic Guard for 30 minutes
3. A pair of Cleaner Shrimp are on the Way
4. I have qted the fish for about two weeks now.
I hope that these strategies will end with flying colors.
