So how does the hypo process go? Could you give me a timeline maybe? Do I mix water in the QT at 1.009 and drip acc the fish, or have it match the main tank and slowly lower it through water changes? Any help on this is great, no clue what I'm doing lol
Heres a link for more details on Hypo treatment.

http://www.reefsanctuary.com/forums/...t-process.html

As for a timeline. Minimum of 4 weeks hypo or copper treatment. Ich has about 28 day life cycle.

A new sponge will take a good week or so to build up a decent bacteria colony but water changes will take care of any ammonia build up. Just keep an eye on ammonia obviously.

Hope that answers some questions.

That confuses me now lol.. I've watched some lectures from large aquarium/zoos that treat incoming wild fish by a 30 minute bath in 1.009 with 0 acclimation for removal of parasites which this thread says hypo can not treat. Although if acclimated then it wouldn't from my knowledge because as I said the parasites can also acclimate.

An quote from the thread

Quote:
The hyposalinity treatment only treats a very limited number of ciliated parasites. The most notable in this group is Marine Ich (Cryptocaryon irritans). The home aquarist will not be using hyposalinity to treat any other disease or condition. Is this clear? I'll write it again -- hyposalinity cures ONLY Marine Ich.
Perhaps thats somewhat clears up confusion??
