I currently have 2 clowns, a Powder Blue, and a Large Naso in a 30g qt
for ich. This Saturday will be 6 weeks in qt
. I treated them for ich using cupramine, and am leaving the main tank fallow for 8 weeks. They are doing great..
Long term health of your fish is the goal. A short term medicated/hypo qt
will be very beneficial to the long term health of the fish. On the other hand as this fish grows larger it will need alot more swim room to keep it healthy. Consider maybe upgrading as soon as possible.
Please note that I suggest a bigger qt
because you will need to qt
ALL your fish for ich even though they may not show signs. The main tank will need to remain fallow/fishless for a period of 6 to 8 weeks.
As Lando noted, you will need to gradually bring the salinity down over a period of time. You will also need a refractometer if you do not have one...
You sound like a very responsible hobbiest! Kudos....
Hope all goes well!
