If it turns out the fish has an infection then the LR will also be contaminated and cannot be returned to the main tank.
understood, I meant to say "expendable" lr! though, one could leave the rock in qt without fish for 6-8 weeks fallow and no more ich...

Agreed, good question. Also, have you tried lacing the food with garlic juice, it can stimulate a feeding responce.

His posts say he's tried garlic with his foods and it hasn't worked. I'm starting to wonder if he doesn't have a plastic nemo from mcdonalds. Not eating for a clown is pretty rare. I know mine were little garbage guts 30 seconds after I put them in my tank. I'd lay money on pure stress and would be curious what he has in his qt and where its placed. If he has no hiding spots and has a lot of trafic around the tank, he's likely pretty stressed out. Especially if he's wild caught. If your qt is bare, put in a few pvc 90 degree elbows, limit his lighting to around 6-8 hours per day, and limit as much traffic as you can. This includes checking him every 10 minutes. Fish can go a pretty lengthy time without eating, so hope in not entirely lost. GL w/him.

I just read your other thread...

Sorry to hear about the clown Keep your head up, I have had some painful experiences in this hobby as I'm sure most of us have, but we are here as a community to give them all the care we can and that is inspiring. Get another, it's the best thing you can do right now.
