ive also tried without, no luck. he sure is a fighter, lasting this long, but he just wont eat. i havent tried any flake or pellet, i like to use the frozen since theres less nitrate buildup. i guess since they are in a hospital tank, it wont matter since i have to do water changes reguardless..... i spose i will give it a shot.

outward signs?

Sorry for your problem with your clown fish. Is it an Ocellaris or True Perc? Was it wild caught?(arsnic poising) I live in St. Pete and the only place I'll buy fish is Marine Warehouse on Hillsborough Ave in Tampa. Outstanding place. Never seen any sick fish and they have a good return policy. Let me know where you bought it. I can't give you any info on Ich you don't allready know ecxept i read that all fish carry the possibity of catching or (creating) ich if they are stressed out enough. Kinda like people getting ulcers? I don't know if thats true, but the article kinda stated that it's an internal dormant thing that can pop up if the fish is stressed and also depends on the hardiness of the species.
