He's talking Bout for freshwater. Set up a quarantine and put a couple rocks some sand and your coral in it. Also, any inverts. Drop the tank to 1.008 and keep it there for four weeks after the last spots. Then raise it (dropping and raising should be done slowly) back to your current salinity. Quarantines are cheap And amazing. I didn't like them now I use them and love them. Hope your fish get better!!!!!
