Wink redsea's 125g FOWLR Build

Hello everyone! I have had this 125g up for a while now, and my original plan was to make it a reef tank. However, I don't want to have 13 fish in the tank with rock and coral, and then have an ich outbreak. I want to have the ability to treat in the tank if I ever get ich again. For background on this tank, visit this thread: redsea's 125g Reef Build. I believe that I have ich now, so around this week I will start treating with hyposalinity. I would have kept using the same thread, but this tank won't be a reef anymore, so I decided to make a new thread (the reef will be a 55g ).

This is the stock so far in the tank.
1. Blue Hippo Tang
2. Scopas Tang
3. McCosker's Flasher Wrasse
4. Linespot Flasher Wrasse
5. Lawnmower Blenny
6. Orange Clownfish (Ocellaris)

Thanks for reading! I appreciate it!

Thank you! Ich is very confusing to me, I think they have it, but I can't be 100% sure. I will treat anyways just to make sure.

I hd ich a couple of times in my 180g FO tank. I treated with Cryto-pro and it is all gone. I also maintain 2 ppm of copper in the tank as a preventative. I don't have any inverts. I just wanted to put that out there so someone didn't kill their CUC.

UPDATE!


All the fish are still doing well, nothing has died! LOL.

It is so hard to tell if this is ich or not. Today on the one fish I closely observed, I saw a few spots, but none of the fish have fully broken out with anything yet. I would think that they would have considering they were netted twice yesterday and were in buckets while acclimating.

I haven't done anything with the tank today, I think I will wait to start hypo until my refractometer comes in (I need to order that tonight, LOL).

As always, thanks for following!

So, I am just making sure.

When treating with hyposalinity you hsve to quickly lower the salinity, that way there is no chance at all for the ich to adapt, right? It woin't stress the fish, will it?

Thank you!
