Good to know. I used to use this QT tank for freshwater a while ago, and I never had a substrate for that same purpose.

I did another water change and brought down the SG from 1.015 to 1.011. I'll try to do another small one tomorrow to bring it down to the 1.009 I'm aiming for.

I must say though, the clowns weren't looking too good to me. Not eating, clamped fins, fading color, I'm a little doubtful that they'll be able to withstand the treatment, or the disease for that matter...

On the bright side, the pajama cardinal in there is strong as ever. Eating, active, colorful, no signs of disease. He doesn't seem to have been bothered by the hypo at all, which is great since I thought he might have been. Hopefully I don't jinx myself lol.

The lower Sg will cause them to hang at the bottom and just lay there. They will move around some, feeding with a garlic supplement might be needed. Feed high amino acid food. Keep lighting off or at min when feeding. It's always a long shot with ick if not caught in time.

I hope it works out for you

I went out earlier and picked up a garlic supplement. I also got some cupramine, just to keep on hand. It's been my experience that it's usually a good idea to keep some of these meds handy.

Unfortunately, it seems I was too late for the smaller of the two clowns. When I came home from dinner with my gf I found him dead. I'm not too hopeful about the other one either...

Darn man, that sucks. Some times it's too late once you can even see ick. it happens, rub it off and start again. I can't tell you how many fish and coral I killed to get where I am today. People ask me all the time how much money I have spent in my tank, I say enough to buy a small car... And if you ask my second half she would confirm. Lol hang in there, learn from mistakes and keep going.
