My buddy QuarryShark here is a fountain of advice. He's helped me out a number of times. I had a clownfish that had been exposed to ich, and I chose the hyposalinity method (I don't like using chemicals unless I have to), and it seemed to do the trick. Six weeks at 1.009 SG
and no more ich. (CAUTION...if you try this, make sure to get a refractometer...you can't get a swing-arm hydrometer accurate enough to perform hyposalinity treatment). Looks like my latest acquisition, a Royal Gramma, is going to have to go through this, as he's getting a white spot on his tail, but I think he must have had some issues in the tank the LFS
got him from.
(Psst, hey QS, I notice you've got a Lawnmower Blenny...I think that's the same thing as what I got...mine is dark gray/black in color. The LFS
said the closest they could classify him was a Lawnmower. What in the heck do these guys eat? He won't touch anything I give him)
