Well, the spots disappeared but he never really wanted to eat anything after QT
. Probably more due to stress than the ich. He was very skinny, his first two white lines were gray. When I left for work early this morning he was basically blowing around in the current of the tank breathing very quickly, then would all of a sudden start swimming, then stop and blow in the current.
I just couldn't keep the QT
water parameters reasonable. I've been working crazy long hours lately and just could not keep up with daily water changes to keep the ammo low. There's no doubt in my mind that it was my inability to QT
correctly that eventually led
to the heni's death. It was just really bad timing.
Although I learned a lesson here - my QT
tank was cracked so I didn't bother QT
this one fish out of the 5 so far that I have. I'll never introduce a fish without QT
again - I don't care how long I have to wait.
