Nope, I missed a poor emerald crab when I dropped my SPG. I found out when I saw his carcas at about .014. A few snails that I missed also passed.
I single survivor was a cerith snail that I found, still alive after 8 weeks of hypo. I guess there are exception to everything, but I would get as many of the inverts out as you can find.

OK. That's what I thought, but wanted to run it by you guys. I don't have any live rock or inverts (other than hermits and snails) in the main tank, so that is why I was going to treat the main tank. That way I can be sure to kill all of the Ich in the main tank, while at the same time treat the fish. I took out as many hermits and snails as I could find this morning. I'm going to take a second look before I start the hypo tonight, for those stragglers who had a hard time getting out of bed this morning! Wish me luck.

Good Luck...Be sure to keep the hermit/snails in the other tank for a full 8 weeks even if hypo is done before then.

Good luck!
Oh, and watch the PH closely while you are dropping the salinity. It had a tendancy to drop and you will need to buffer at some point.

Agree, I use Kent as well..good stuff.
Do it slowly, make any PH change gradual.

Disease Prevention

Hello Everyone,
This has been my experience. I picked up my Blue Tang about 10 month ago. A week after I put her in the tank she was sick with ich. I used a bottle of kick ich for over two weeks and after a month she was still sick. I was in another LFS that was going out of business and I picked a small bottle of Tropical Science Marine-Max for about $5, half off or so. In less then a week the ich was gone. I moved about 3 months ago and I was all out Marine-Max. A month went by and she started to get sick, it was some sort of parasites this time. I went to my new LFS and picked some more up, she is doing fine. If you have a Blue Tang I wouldn’t leave the FS without it. I started this hobby less then a year ago and I have not had a death since I started using this about 9 months ago.
Treatment is as follows:

One teaspoon per 20 gallons, every two weeks.

For aquariums with unhealthy conditions, ad one teaspoon per twenty gallons three time a week until condition improves.

Ad when performing water changes or when adding new fish.

It is two bottle held together by its label. You can get a large bottle, 16oz for around $18. This will treat bout 950 gallons of water and is much cheaper then Kick Ich that you would use after your fish have already been sick. It is also copper and chemical free, so it is Reef safe.

Best,

Nick
