My QT Perameters

I have a 20 gallon qt. it's been set up for 2.5 weeks. I am treating a porc puffer, butterfly, and trigger for ich with cupramine. The ich seems to be gone. I do 5 gallon water changes a day. My nitrates are off the charts? Do I need to do anything different? My salinity is 1.025, temp is 78-80. Copper is .05.

I would do bigger PWCs to get nitrates down.

Sad news bg, I lost my tang, and butterfly. I also returned my puffer, he was stressing me out. His ich would go away for a few days then return. My trigger looks good. Still in qt. I'll probably put him back in my dt this weekend.

Sorry to hear about the fish. How's the trigger doing? Is he back in DT?

It's ok. That's the risk you take when you have an aquarium... He's doing well. I'll probably put him back in the dt next week. Tying to be cautious with him, because he was the hardest to catch and I don't want to try that again! Lol

I'll bet!! Haha I don't have one, but I've heard they're quite fast!! That wasn't fun, I'm sure.
