I think the egg or larval stage comes before the stage where you can actually see it show up as white spots. That would mean the others will probably be exposed to the ick before you can Qt them

And after they're exposed, if I treat them all in QT with Cupramine, what are the chances of them getting back to full health?

Mark, keep it in QT and keep doing water changes.. Tap water is fine, but you need to get a larger container so you can make enough for a couple changes and still aerate for a good 12 hrs.

Seriously, I know it seems like you should just add it to the main to increase it's chances of survival but you would definitely risk losing all 3. Imagine trying to keep the nitrites down if they were all in QT right now.

Keep doing frequent large changes and you'll come out on top.

My Ammonia is at 1.5mg too.

I'm just mixing some saltwater now, it'll be ready in 24 hours. Hopefully he'll still be alive by then and the levels won't have got much higher!

Anyway you can get some more bacteria in there? A piece of sponge from the main perhaps?

Also, try to feed very sparingly and take out any uneaten food straight away.

Well, the morning after my waterchange (today) my nitrites have gone down a bit to 0.25, but my Ammonia has gone up to 2.5mg.

My salt (with tap, not RO water) has been mixing for 12 hours now. Can I do a 50% waterchange with the water, or should I wait until the full 24 hours is up for the mixing?
