Hello sir, this is interesting. I'm familiar with hypo/hyper salinity techniques.
You may know I'm on my way to my first reef, the Lfs
has been questioned about its fish stock and they employ the hypo technique.
Despite all of my questions they never mentioned this!
Is the cure "heat method" a better solution?
I've dealt with ich before, I medicated, this was with freshwater fish though.
I understand the copper situation with coral and some fish.
I have not used the heat method.
(Edit I realise the marine fish are less adaptable to change such as temp)
