I've been keeping fish for over 10 years now and I guess my arrogance got the better of me, because I added a Lawnmower Blenny to my 75G aquarium without QT
Anyways I setup a QT
tank and followed the advice on using hyposalinity and four weeks into it now my fish are doing fantastic, no signs of flashing or the dreaded white spots.
My thanks go to Quarryshark, Steve-S and Lando as I've read your many posts and you guys sure know your stuff!
I haven't lost any fish (yellow tang, pygmy angel, clown, wrasse, blenny) even with the battle of ammonia and now nitrites. My wrasse really acted strange in the beginning (he just layed on his side and I thought for sure he was a goner) but he since has become his "old self".
I just wanted to say that hyposalinity works great and causes no obvious stress as compared to using Copper (which I used YEARS ago). You can be sure I'll QT
any new fish in the future
If not for this site I wouldn't have made it this far so I felt compelled to make a donation and I hope everyone using this site does too. Even "old timers" learn something new daily here!
