The clowns have now been in qt
for 3 weeks, and the growths are still on them.
Little Clown: He still has it the worst. While the growths/spots have seemed to move around some on his right side, he still has nothing on this left side.
Big Clown: He still has the one spot on his lip but it's slowly dissappearing i think.
Both clowns are acting healthy and eating good. they've been in hypo for three weeks and i've been feeding them flakes saturated in Zoecon([acronym="Highly Unsaturated Fatty Acid"]HUFA
[/acronym]). The bigger clown has begun to taunt the littler one but i'm guessing that's just them figuring out their sexuality. Also, I did the surgery on them to try and remove the spots. It was difficult and i dont' know how effective it was.
So my question is this, since the growths/spots have never dissppeared the 3 weeks the little clown has been in qt
, we can rule out ich right? So should i acclimate them back into the main tank so they can heal from the lympho they have or whatever else it may be? FYI
, if i put them back into the tank, i'll have a heck of a time getting them back and i'll probably have to tear apart my reef again to put them back in qt
....so i want to make sure i treat them now and get the problem solved.
