1.025Ok so i added him to the tank like 3 days ago.. I didnt quarantine because i only have a 10 gallon tank for quarantine and i heard somewhere that the tang will almost always develop ich when addedd to a tank.. So i added him and well.. He we are!.
So ive heard people say to feed him well with garlic soaked foods 2 times a day..
Then others say quarantine... I could take him to petco and have them quarantine him with ich med. But whenever i get to close to the tank he hides. Today hes starting to get use to me.. I can actually stand 3 feet away from him and hes comfortable.. So how in the world would i catch him? Hed just get more stressed right?
AM I OVERTHINKING THIS BECAUSE IM STRESSED TOO. I love the little guy.. Yes little.. Hes only 2 inches.. (Another problem
Please help. you guys are awesome. I need the verdict tonight so i can decide what to do in my scedule for tomorrow..
Here are the tank specs.
Ph: 8.2 salinity: 1.025 0 ammonia, 0 Nitrite and nitrate. 0 phosphate, i have an octopus skimmer, uv
sterilizer, and a great filter with carbon in it. I have a 55 gallon tank.. Yes a 55 gallon tank. Dont go bollistic on this because ive seen many people do this.
I AM BY NO MEANS SAYING THAT ITS RIGHT. because i know its wrong but if and when he gets to big my friend accross the street will take him into his 8000 gallon fowlr
.. Yes 3 zeros and an 8.
So please just tell me what the best way of treatment would be.. He is in with 2 skunk cleaners, blue leg hermits nassarius snails, turbos and astreas... AND i do 9 gallon waterchanges every week.
