I have a 36 gallon tank - ph is between 7.7 and 8, nitrates are between 5-10,
ammonia barely a trace. Been treating ich with kick ich -3 more days will be
a 15 day course. Temp runs at 77.7. and HT is showing no change, no better, no worse. Eating good but hiding and getting cleaned a lot. Have not used carbon. I also have a sm yellow tang, royal gramma, striped damsel, blue damsel, choc chip starfish, 2 cleaner shrimp, 5 sm hermits, 1 lg hermit and 4 snails. I didn't put any of this in my tank til after it had run for 6 weeks and numbers were acceptable. Have followed direction of LFS
clerk. I have started QT tank 2 weeks ago. Ph is a little above 8 and no ammonia or nitrates yet, still adding biozyme there. I'm new and I would really love for Dori to get well. Should I remove HTang from my tank and put in QT or just wait. Do I need to do a water change or let the ich med work for now. I'm afraid to treat with chemicals and hurt the other marine life - the rest are ok right now and eating good. Feeding frozen mysis, flake and algae sheets. Any suggestions?
I'm still new at this and I'm sorry if I don't post it correctly.
