Slowly move it down to 1.009. Treat about 8 weeks. Here are some links on the parasite.

Garlic Extreme works for me. At least it couldn't hurt.

Hypo is definately the way to go. My Lionfish had it pretty bad.



6 weeks at 1.009. You have to be careful of the pH. I would top off every morning and night with buffered RO/DI.

One link posted here by Melosu says to replace 1/5 (20%) of the volume with fresh water every 12 hours until the SG reaches 1.009, so that's what I'm doing. I will also watch the pH. Thanks!

I have my fingers crossed!
