I have had my puffer/damsel in hypo (1.008-1.009) for 6 and a half weeks.
I just started increasing the salinity and noticed that the puffer was doing some flashing (he wasn't at all during hypo.) I thought it might have been the changes in the water so I didn't worry so much.
Looking at the puffer again I noticed 2 white spots on his tail. I'm worried that the ich hasn't cleared up.
What would you guys do? I see the options as:
1. Wait it out and see if it gets worse to verify it is ich.
2. Lower the salinity immediately for another 6 weeks (I really don't want to do this, my patience is being streched already having my tank bare for almost 2 months
I will if I have too though.)
3. Treat with copper. My worry here is that the puffer won't be able to handle the copper.
This is so frustrating!
