Ich related question. So I just bought a tank off a guy with everything. We found s clownfish in the overflow as we broke it down. He hadn't seen it in over 6 weeks and just assumed it was dead. When I got him home I noticed some white fuzz on his nose. I did not plan for needing a quarantine, so I threw together a ten gallon that I previously had used as a freshwater tank. You can see the setup below. Since the hob
filter on the back was new, I knew that I had nothing to deal with nitrogen waste. I quickly decided to through a piece of LR
from the DT in there. I have not treated the fish with copper or anything yet. I have just been observing him. The fuzz went away, but I know ich can do this, so I want to keep him quarantined. I kinda want to just run a copper treatment just to be safe, but I know that if I do that with the LR
that I can never return that to my DT which has corals and inverts.
So, after all that, here is my question. Can ich be moved on LR
? If I have LR
in a tank with suspected ich and I move it to my display, will I be putting all those fish at risk? If so, what do I do with this LR
to get it back in shape for the display?
