I am trying out "Herbatana" and doing 10% water changes an hour after lights go out. I am going to do this routine till Halloween and hope that gets the job done.

Herbatana was useless for me. Gramma got ick bad and now others not happy. Got them in quarantine doing hypo. Went straight to 1.009 got to kick that ick before it kills my fish.

Well dart fish is gone and looks like the other 2 aren't to far behind. Maybe should have done copper, couldn't have been any worse

I think I know what I did wrong and hope you have some ideas. My ph was off when I dropped fishies in so I think they are in shock also sg was way down. Goby is all that is left and he hasn't eaten since start. He is breathing deeply, not really gasping, sometimes on his side. Looking real skinny. Knowing is half the battle but fixing is other.

Goby isn't looking to shabby although he still hasn't eaten. I got some live brine going on...no luck yet. My nitrates are at .5 so would that make him not hungry? Ph is 7.8 ammonia .5 also. 12 gallon qt with some PVC. I am doing 2 gallon Pwc 2x a day. moving up to 3 gallons, that will be max I can do. Assuming it is a cycle and all I can do is pwc pwc pwc. If I am wrong please fill me in.
Lastly can I put bioballs in DT even though it has ick? Trying to get bb going.

Well my nitrites are at .25 and my nitrates are at +5.0, ammonia .25 and jawfish isn't looking to shabby. Still not trying to escape so not quite healthy but breathing is better.
