If it were me I'd qt the fish and do hypo in that tank and leave the main tank without fish for 6-8 weeks to be sure it's really gone.
That's what I want to do Carey I bought the uv
to dwindle the population of free swimmers so I wanted to ask u Carey do I keep the fish under hypo for the whole 6-8 weeks or do I gradually raise the level till its back to normal but keep fish in the quarantine tank with normal salt levels till the ich in the display tank dies out...rather than having the fish under hypo for 8 weeks I was thinking more like 2 weeks then slowly over 2 weeks raise the salinity back to 1024....I asked If the Lfs
would house my invertebrates do I could put my display tank under hypo so that way I don't need to move them...or in worse case I could move the non fish population to the 50 gal
which I currently use as a reservoir for my auto top up....what advice do u recommend...don't wanna harm the rock
