In case of emergencies (if a fish appears to be ill), I plan to use tap water (instead of the usual RO
) to fill my QT
, and mix the saltwater for 1 hour instead of the usual 24. I also keep my filter pads from my QT
filter seeded with bacteria in my main tank.
I was just wondering if anyone could offer some guidelines as to what to do with a sick fish, going by symptoms etc.
Do most of you keep a good stock of treatments to use in the QT
, or do you mostly do freshwater dips/salinity treatments etc.?
I'd just like to be prepared if anything happens, with a bit of knowledge!
If I was to go out and buy some treatments to have in just in case, which would you buy?
