So since I added a chromi and clown goby from my LFS
; my big 3-4inch black ocellaris broke out in ICK; Im away for work right now and I'm having my Dad take care of the tank, my ammonia was up 0.25 for 2-3 days., did a 5 gallon WC
and things are okay now. He did the WC
yesterday and woke up this morning and found him covered... its a 50 gallon tank, so i doubt that water change could of stressed him out that bad?
--Im new to saltwater so before diving in; i just sent him to the LFS
where they said they will help sick fish
-if I have to deal with this again; this is what I am planning on doing...
- i wont have too big of fish in my tank since its only 50g; so i was going to get a 10g hospital tank; no substrate; heater; do i need a filter?
- not really familiar with how hospital tanks should be set up...
-i would treat with a lower salinity .. to start... than whats the best meds? copper?
-thanks for the help.. this hobby i was so excited for is now turning into a nightmare
