Yeah, that's what the research I did suggested as well. I was just triing to find an easier way. Next week I will set up a qt to keep my fish in for at 6 weeks.
Thanks for your help.
my blue tang has white specks on it, and it does sit in front of a power head as of yesterday, any suggestions?
May I also illustrate the effectiveness of treating your food with garlic on a regular basis.
When my tank had ick I used kick ick, treated the food with garlic and added a cleaner shrimp. The fish have been ick free for almost a year. I believe that the cleaner shrimp helped the most.
I treated my whole tank (corals and all) with Kordon Ich Attack - it's 100 % oraganic did a good jod getting rid of Ich and didn't seem to bother anything else in my tank!
I had a bad ick attack start Christmas, tried some organic stuff and work up and it had just exploded. I went back and bought some Kordon Ick Attack and a cleaner shrimp. A few days later it looked like everyone was healing nicely -- the trigger (orginal patient) had a few spots left but were leaving. The next day my threadfin and yellow tang were absolutely covered with spots -- all while still treating with Ich Attack.
Well it's almost 2 weeks later -- no fish lost -- still some signs of ick as I've been still treating with the Ick Attack and Organic stuff the LFS had me try. Everyone seems pretty healthy other than the white spots.
How long will Ick last like this? Do I need to blast the tank with copper? A quarantine tank is out of the question -- the ick occured 3 months or so after my last fish purchase, just frustrating....
On the plus side I just built my own sump, going to leak check it tomorrow ;D ;D ;D
I had an ich outbreak two months ago, I soaked all my food in garlic and added a UV sterilizer and an ozone generator. For me the garlic worked pretty darn good the fish seem to be more attracted their food. Take that advice for what you paid for it.
I found some ich on some of my fish last week, I have started treating it with Ruby Reef Kick-Ich and garlic, so far so good, everyone is eating and swimming happly for now, Lets hope it stays that way.
Ok..I read all of the above posts and have made notes of treatments.
I just noticed (in the past 10 minutes of me posting this) that my Domino damsel has 6 little white spots around his nose and my clown has two spots on his tail. Is this Ich?
