Well i quarantined all my fish yesterday. I gave them a 60 minutes formalin bath followed by a four minute freshwater dip.
I then placed them on the qt tank with fresh saltwater. I think i am keeping the tank at 1.025 because i'm pretty confident that i got rid of all the parasites on the fish. If i do notice another black spot once they are on the qt tank i will do another formalin bath followed by hyposalinity.

I was planning on having the main tank without fish for five weeks, but u r the second person that says that the parasite can live in the substrate for several months. i think that once the five weeks are up, i am going to throw in the tank by itself for another week. Since that's the one that is more prone to be the host. If she's fine after that week i think i should be okay with all the other fish going in.

I just got my fish back into my tank after 5 1/2 weeks of hypo. If something does happen while in the DT I'm going to try this stuff Aquarium External Parasite, Ich Control: FishVet NO-ICH at Drs. Foster and Smith,
I've read a lot of good reviews on this stuff. I don't ever want to tear my tank apart again, boy did that really suck.

Sounds like this stuff is really good. Too bad it doesn't work for Black Ich.

Yeah I know, I had the white variety. I bought a bottle from Drs. after I put the fish in the QT just in case, nobody around my way sells it. Good luck over there, keep us posted.

Good review on that product. As more and more people setup "Reef tanks", we will start to see more products like this. It's good to see the "it works" reviews and there will be other products and I am certain some "bad" reviews.
I have used "Kordon Aquaherbals...Ich.Attack" withh 100% good resullts too.
