Thanks for all the advice!! I think I'm a hypo user from now on when it comes to treating ich. Well, my clown is still hanging in there. I did a water change on my main tank (55 gallon FOWLR
) early yesterday and I saved ten gallons of the water and I switched out the copper treated water that was in my QT tank and I started lowering the salinity and will continue to do so until until I reach 1.0085-1.009 SG
. The SG
of the water in the main is 1.022 and now the SG
in the QT is 1.015 and I'm still in the process of lowering the SG
. Right after I switched out the coppered water that used to be in my QT tank and replaced it with the copper-free main tank water, I gave my clown a 3-4 minute freshwater bath and that helped him in a great way as it got rid of alot of the ich parasites. I have a heater in the QT that is set at 83 degrees and he seems to not be having any problems with it. Well, so far that is the update and I'll keep you posted on how things go in a few days or so.
