Sorry, I lost (one ) when the tang died , and (I lost an orange ) when it became bad ( I then went to the store amd purchased a fully equipped clinic tank).
I treated with general cure because I saw on YouTube it showed excellent results. Also I have tried supper Ich in the past years ( I did move across country and had to close down that tank ) I didn’t have success .
I was nervous to try copper because I heard you really need to be testing copper and now that the tank is very small 5 gallons . I was concerned.
I do daily checks of my water parameters for ammonia and keep it at zero , I move out all food . I do a ph check , keep it at 8.4-8.8 ( I use the api reef testers by color).
I keep my salinity at 1.026-1.025. I use reef crystals. I have an aqua max RODI
. I also set up the tank ( clinic tank) with my show tank water after checking my show tank parameters and doing a fresh water change. And placed a live rock , some sand inside the clinic tank to help with the live bacteria. Because I was nervous of new tank syndrome.
Every other day this week I have done a fresh water dip, after hearing the water to the clinic tank level 75 degrees and also adding a PH buffer to bring up the ph to 8.4 ( or again in the purple based off test).
Can you please let me know what brand you like of the copper treatment & also what you would dose for a 5 gallon.
PS I have an 8” green carpet anemone who loves my black clown and they are like family to us.
I’ve had them for over 7 or 8 months now . They were the first ones in my tank.
Bless you and appreciate your help !
