Watching my fish die...anything I can do?

One of my clowns in the QT was swimming upside down, doing flips ect. I thought there wasnt enough air so i added a pump. nope....

All the suddon its fins locked and in sank to the bottom...

Has ick gotten the best of the fish?

All the other fish in the QT look fine and healthy. Swimming and eating.

It looks like its having a sezure....

What are the water paramiters in the QT, how many fish? That's what happened to mine.

They look great, I hope everything turns out ok as well.

1 ?

If there are no fish in my main tank, the ick is just swimming around? So should I add a UV sterilizer to the loop?

I'm not sure about that, I do know that it won't kill all of the ICH.

8 weeks of leaving the tank fallow, is what I have read...

You can add the UV if you want but it wont get rid of the ick any quicker. But it would be a good preventive measure after you get rid of the ick. Reason you have to wait 8 weeks is for the cycle of the parasite to be broken. I believe that the UV is important but that`s a whole nother controversy.
