so here's what's interesting. this "patch" or whatever it was sort of came off, and there is a remnant of whatever it was on him (like a scar?). still gonna treat him. a little scared tho, hope i didnt stress the little guy out
Could be the cyst falling off if it is ich. You need to figure out (if it is ich) if you want to do what most people do and control the ich in your tank from here on out, or do what you should do and eradicate it completely. To do this, you need to QT all your fish, and let the tank run fallow for 4-6 weeks. If there's no fish in there, excluding inverts- they can stay, the ich will die off because it won't have a host. I'm in the process of setting up a QT right now if you want to jump in on my thread. I'm not messing around anymore with my tank, already made one mistake that led
to ich, now I'm gonna nuke it outta my tank completely.
