If you mean your SG is 1.009, you may want to work on that. Norm is 1.021 to 1.025.

My coral beauty likes mysid shrimp, you could give that a try. I would definitely raise your SG, but do it slowly as to not shock everything in the tank. Good luck with everything.

Any other symptoms? Are you treating a parasite with hypo?

Are you doing hypo I assume on the fish? Does he show any signs of disease? If not then why not start bring the salinity back up??

Lower salinity should be less stressful on fish and also help their appetite. If it paid frozen cyclopeeze no attention the only thing I can think of is live brine.

See if you can find frozen cyclopeeze. I have never had a fish turn away from it.

I'd try raising you sg slowly to bring him back to health before you lose him. They say no more .02 per week, but I think you're safe raising it .02 every 3 days. The ick seems like it's dying off now, so keep him in the qt until it's completely gone. But if it doesn't go away, you can always start another cycle of hypo or copper treatment. He should start eating once you get him back in sw range. Good luck with the angel, they're finnicky little buggers.
