If they have ich I recommend a hyposalinity treatment for 6-8 weeks. Lower the salinity to 1.009 over a day or two, and leave it there for the treatment period, then slowly raise it back up.

You also need to get your ammonia and nitrites down.

They are breathing normal and being goofy just as clowns are numbers are slowly coming down salinity is at 1.024 I don't much care for hypo due to high risk bringing it back so what are my other options. All are eating like pigs so thats a plus
