I have a 5 gal
fluval chi pico reef.
pH is 8.2
Trates - unknown. I ran out of drops so need a new test.
I have been using instant ocean reef crystals but switched to petco natural seawater because of the hair algae. That's a different issue.
I bought the naked green clown goby 8 days ago. I went through 3 or 4 days of him not eating and he developed bumps. Not Ich or anything. Research I did said it was stress/malnutrition induced. He finally started eating, bumps started going away. Last night he was almost out in the open. He looked pretty good. This morning- lots of bumps, and also white specks. So, I'm pretty sure he has Ich. I don't want to lose him. I've spent hours and hours over the last week trying to get him healthy. I believe he has a strong will to live. What do I need to do? Hypo? I've read that this is best way to kill the Ich.
I have nassarius snails, emerald crab, blue leg hermits crabs, a small candy cane and a few zoas. I will eventually add more coral and inverts, but Brickleberry will be the only fish inhabitant. Please help me try to save my little Brickleberry.
