Hi I have recently quarantined my fish in a spare 40 gal
, Now ive decided to either treat the marine ich with hypo or with cupramine.
Ive been recommended on both... The problem for the hypo is i only have the coral life deep six hydrometer... and ive been told i need to have a refractometer or pinpoint salinity tester etc...
The other problem with hypo for me, is that i have 2 diferent stories of how to do it.
1. The forum: tells me to lower salinity gradually over a week from 1.023 to 1.009 and let it stay there for a week then to bring it back up in a weeks time... so total of 3 weeks
2. The Local Fish store says: I only need to lower it to 1.017 and to lower it gradually within a weeks time and o leave it for a week then bring it back up in a weeks time? again total of 3 weeks...
which is correct????
Do u guys recommend cupramine if this is my situation?
Also told me to keep my display tank fishless for 30 days to kill the ich...
I have purple tang
