If it is not ick how long do I wait to be sure without seeing any new spots?
The tomont (reproductive cyst) can remain for about 30 days in some cases so it is best the fish remains in the QT for at least that time frame to be sure. Basically a normal 4 week QT time. If you see no additional spots between now and the next 4 weeks, your good to go.

Well a new update. The clowns have been doing great in QT. Good behavior and great feeding. This morning there it was. A single white spot on the tail fin of the female clown. I started treatment and checked levels. Hopefully all will be OK now that I am starting treatment.

Based on the normal life cycle, it would be about the right time frame for the trophonts to re appear.

What treatment method will you be using?

Cheers
Steve

I looked for the cupramine but the closest I could get was the Mardel coppersafe I posted earlier about. I dosed it and levels are at 1.5ppm. I plan on about three weeks of treatment then hopefully into the main tank. I wish I could get away with 2 weeks but it is not worth the chance of transferring ick back to the main.

Coppersafe is okay, just be sure to monitor the levels at least once a day. After th treatment is completed, you need to wait at least 2 weeks afterwards. That's the only way to be sure the the treatment was effective. Plus you need to fallow the main for 6 weeks minimum which I think you aid has now been empty of fish for 3 weeks?

Cheers
Steve
