Laying under the PVC is not a issue. Not eating is another subject. What have you tried to feed?

I've tried to feed him spirulina and kelp flakes and Kent reef carnivore and herbivore pellets.

Have any garlic? Cyclopeeze usually entices them too. Also noticed you have been lowering the salinity. Make sure you monitor the PH and buffer accordingly so it does not lead into other problems.

I add Kent garlic extreme to the pellets and add 1/4 tsp of kent super buffer to 5 gals. of RO water that I use to drop the SG each day til I get to 1.0009.

I can't see that it's a Am/Ni/Na issue given i swap out 5 gals. of water each day.

Well,

I'll be a son of a gun - the Hippo is still here a week later. He still hides but _is_ eating the nori I put out every day. The SG is now at hypo strength (1.009).

There he'll stay for another 7 weeks.

So far so good..

Just for information. You can slow start raising the salinity 4 weeks after the last signs of ich. I would wait 5 to be safe.

Well, he's sill here. Hiding all the time but still here.

He'll eat the Nori I clip on the tank glass each day.

Brenden,

This fish never showed any signs of ich. I'm doing the hypo as a preventaitive measure.

From what I've read doing the hypo will assure the fish never comes down with ich in the future, provided the tank you put him in is ich free as well.

Correct. Sounds like it is doing well. Good Luck
