QS,

I concur with keith let it run its course. A 210g is not much fun w/o fish. It is probably more stress QT the fish at this point.

I went through it early on and did the QT thing and even with my 75g FOWLR I would not take it down again to deal with ICH. two months ago I dealt with it because I was lazy and did not QT a new fish that I should not have added anyway (overstocked) I lost the new fish because it was picked on. Otherwise the cleanershrimp do their job and the strong survived.

With the stock you have I might suggest more cleaners. Also, for the size of tank you seem understocked on clean up crew i.e. hermits in particular. I have read as many as 1/gal. I have 30-40 in my 75g and they do a great job on waste. I would think you might want at least 100 blue and red leg combined.

Good luck,

How attached are you to the wife?

Really sorry to hear you're having these issues, Quarryshark. I can't offer any more advice than what you and half the people on this list have suggested to me over the last several months. But I can certainly put some good kharma out there for you.

We are good, in fact she is being very supportive.
I'm standing by to treat, but everything is cool so far. Fish are fat and sassy...we'll see.
Thanks for your kind words. People on this forum are the best.!!!!

Yeah I’m going through the same thing……I actually opened up a thread before reading this one “Ick is back”. I’m starting all over again with the treatment process.

Hey Kurt, Sorry to hear about your recent problems. Don't have much advice that people have not already offered, so I will just offer support. You have too much invested in this to scrap it all. Keep your chin up. I would start with the soaking your food in garlic. My hippo tang showed little white spots on his fins. When I started feeding garlic-soaked food they went away. How about bumping up the temp of your tank to shorten the life-cycle of the parasite? I think all in your tank could handle 84 degrees for a few weeks, just do it slowly. Hang in there, we are all pulling for you and your fish! Lando

Thanks guys, I appeciate the support. I have been feeding with garlic and playing the waiting game, but the outbreak has not lessened. Its still there, especially on my bigger Heni.
In the meantime I have set up the 40 gallon and 2-10 gallon qt tanks, looks like I will have to move them. Just need to set up the overflow for my 40 to give the extra water volume. Here is a pic of my 40 from last time.
Don't look foward to it, but I really believe in doing it right.

PS. Friday will be 6weeks in qt for my fish, but I am afraid to take them out...oh well, we'll see.

Well, strange is it may seem, I have not seen a spot on the fish in 2 weeks. I am keeping my fingers crossed, but at the same time I have all 3 of my qt tanks set up and well cycled. Maybe it was an optical illusion....but that all look fat, sassy and spotless...so far. Have been runnig the UV full time, maybe it really did help.
BTW , I understand the life cycle and am sceptical...but still waiting...ready......
