This may be semi-irrelevant but how would one treat ich without a QT tank? I know I should make one I just can't because I have too many tanks as it is now .

I dosed the food with metronidazole. Seemed to work like a champ. I didn't want to do anything else, i was afraid it would kill the corals. I used garlic and what's baisically fishy antibiotics.

So food + garlic + metronidazole = no ich and no dead inverts?

if they're healthy they can fight it off. when they eat garlic, it goes through their skin and the ich doesnt like it, so it falls off. This doesn't fix the underlying problem however, it will eventually return. same with the metronidazole. but it'll remove it.

Tonight's big project.... It's on the bed hiding from cats who would hop in it.
Check out my snazzy Cars comforter too.

That's the recommended way to use the product though I'm not sure it kills ich in all it's stages (free floating/etc). I think it's commonly used as a secondary treatment. Never used it though.. prefer fallow and hypo

Then are you interested in fiberglass? ?

I lose track of time badly during the day. Suddenly it's evening and too late. I did try the other day. But I was kind of clumsy so I figured it was probably best to avoid chemicals and powertools.
