FW dip

How often do I do a 30 min FW did for a clown fish? I was told to do it 3 times, but how long between dips? once a day or what?

I dont advocate FW dips but those that do I dont think do it for 30 minutes. Can a SW fish live in FW for 30 minutes? I dont think so but maybe I`m wrong. What is wrong with the fish? Where did you see to do it for 30 mins. at? I cant give you a good answer on how long because everytime I see a fish get dipped in FW the results were not good. So I dont suggest them.

The "wwm" articles SadieLynn mentioned in the Nano forum thread is short for WetWebMedia. You might check this page out - and it's associated links...

Not familiar with FW dips, so I can't offer any advise except read up over at wwm... lots of good info there.

I still dont recommend them because all I`ve seen it do is stress out further and the fish be worse off and even die. JMO
