thanks so much for the help guys
but after reading the articles, i'm more confused now than i was before lol
i totally understand the diseases but the treatment is a little too scientific for a dude like me .. this is why i havent tried a SW
i grabbed some 'coppersafe' meds at the lfs
.. he's clear of inverts & live corals / rock; just has some dead corals for decoration .. i'm hoping the meds work but i'm pretty sure he's too far gone
he told me that he now has stringy things on his eyes, which i believe are worms / parasites .. the coppersafe says it treats those, ick & protozoan velvet (which i also think he has)
as far as test kits for his parameters & copper levels, thats gonna be on him .. i can barely afford my own stuff with the job i have lol but if he buys them, i'll go
out daily & take care of the testing, etc.
& just FYI, i HIGHLY doubt they've done any pwc
's or cleanings since they redid the tank .. it's a shame too cuz my tattoo artist buys BEAUTIFUL fish!!
anything else you guys can tell me would help very much but THANK YOU for all you guys have done already!! i will def be getting a free tatt because of you guys
