Please 'scuse my headache so I haven't read through everything, but this is what I normally do as bath routine (I'll include Formalin dosage as well);
The dosage for a bath is: .125 to .167 ml of formalin/l at 80F. If you use a 5g bucket you can add 2g of qt water, an airstone, and add 1.25ml (I rounded down) of formalin. Allow 1 minute for the formalin to mix. Add your fish and watch carefully for 30-60mins. DO NOT WALK AWAY!!! If the animal becomes too lethargic or normal breathing rates rapidly decline take it out immediately. Have another bucket with freshwater available and proceed with a fw
dip up to 15mins. DO NOT WALK AWAY!!! If the animal becomes too lethargic or normal breathing rates rapidly decline take the animal out immediately. Once the dips are complete, place the animal back into qt and refill the qt with fresh saltwater. This will act as a small water change (50% daily or every other day should be conducted imo
). Repeat procedure once every 3 days.
**If you require more gallons of water in the bucket for the bath simply do the math
Hopefully I got mine right!!
Shouldn't this have been moved to the Sick Fish/Coral section?
