told me he would be ok in my tank and i now realized it's way to small which is probably what stressed him out...so? please let me know guys.
In this case it might be best to do a fresh water dip. It's stressful to the fish but its a lot less stressful than dying to ich. I did that when my clowns were getting ich really bad and they were back to acting normally within a few hours
It won't cure it but enough of the parasites will drop off that it could save the fish.
