I have had my Regal tang in QT
with a tankmate (Velvet dottieback) I bought at the same time….By they way QT’ing them as I bought both of them 3 weeks ago….As of today, I have not seen any signs of ick. Both are eating well and getting along well. I have done water changes once per week and all levels are 0 and PH
at 8.2. Temp at around 80-82. I noticed 2-3 dots of what I thought might be ick about 2-3 days on the regal when I first got him….but since then all is well and I think it may have just been debris. Plus I soak everything I feed them garlic.
So Im going to leave them both in there for another 2-4 weeks. If I don’t notice anything on either of them should I put them in the main tank after 4 weeks or 6 weeks? Im leaving for vacation for a week on July 21 and this will be about 4-5 weeks they have been in QT
. Should I wait until I get back to put them in the main tank or before I leave? If I haven’t noticed anything in this 4-6 week timeframe, wouldn’t it be safe to assume neither one have ick?
