To cut a long story short, it looks like I've got Ich in my 240g FOWLR
. Some of the fish I inherited over the holidays have spots. They are all eating fine and it does not look bad , but I am worried about future additions having issues.
My dilemma now is this...I can't possibly QT a large Desjardini Tang, large Engineer Goby, good sized Huma Huma, a Porcupine Puffer and a Valentini Puffer between my 45g, 30g and 15g. I think that the stress will do more bad than good. I know the general rule is "don't treat in your DT", but in a case like this, I am considering hypo in the DT as the least stressful option.
I've read several stories on various forums where people have done this successfully with no bad effects after salinity was brought back to normal. I've read various stories from hypo killing all BB to it simply slowing it down into a less effective state.
One minute I think I will just feed well and hope they will overcome this, but the next, I worry about expensive future additions having issues. Any feedback and/or suggestions are appreciated.
