I just finished setting up a QT and moving ALL 6 fish in there. I'm going to give the hyposalinity a try. Unfortunately, it can't be done in the main tank because I have live rock and snails and crabs -- the low salinity will kill them.

So tomorrow starts Day 1 of probably 60 days lol ... This really sucks! I will always quarantine now.
I did hypo for 6 weeks this summer, it is actually pretty calming on the fish. Good luck! I now have a mandarin, lawnmower blenny and six spot goby in QT awaiting 6 weeks of quarantine before putting in DT, the clowns that went through hypo are back in DT. They were the only survivors of my ich outbreak.

Exactly,,so many people are so afraid to put their" poor fish " through hypo,but don't blink twice about dumping smelly chemicals that turn your water brown or cloudy into their tanks...
Hypo is proven and works when done correctly every time,,and "is" calming to the fish..they actually breath and relax better in lower salinity
