I noticed ick on my Purple Tang and harlequin Tuskfish two weeks ago and started feeding garlic soaked food and raised the temp of the tank to 82. They haven't shown any improvemnet as of yet, so have just moved them to a 10 gal
hospital tank and i am using Cupramine to treat the little buggers. The question is this, i have a moray eel in my display tank as well as LR
, Stars, Polyps, and various inverts. He, the eel. is not showing any signs of ick, and i just fed him, so i know he is eating. I have no other fish in the tank with him now. Do i need to remove him from my display tank as well during the quarantine period of the other 2 fish and treat him with the Cupramine? With him in the tank, will the life cycle of the ick parasites end or do they use him as well? Can i treat my display tank with anything without removing the eel? Should i be soaking his food with garlic as well? What about hyposalinity (is that lowering the salinity to 1.015)? Can i do that to my main tank without hurting anything? What do you think?
