The Goby looked bad in the main tank too. His fins are all torn up, faded color, really lethargic, covered in Ich bad. That was just when I found him this morning. He's looking and acting about the same in hypo now.

The blenny is swimming around looking for food like normal lol.

Yeah it wasn't the best day by far but I'm sure there will be a silver lining.

I think I'm meaning toward a decision to move my blenny back into the tank after hypo is complete but not to add any other fish after that.

Sorry sky. If I may give you a suggestion. I qt all my fish for 4 -6 weeks in hypo from day one. 4 weeks if they don't break out in ich and 6 if they do. I will never have a ich outbreak ever again and you do not have to either.

I know. I have nobody to blame for this other than myself. I know better but I gave into the excitement of the new fish and was unprepared for a fish that size. Unfortunately the importance of a proper QT process has been driven home the hard way.

All I can do from here is make sure that I do everything possible and follow a proper process. Lesson learned!
