Wouldn’t say I’m panicking. Just want to get a handle on this before gets out of control. Ich is deadly if gets out of control. Seems like only chance of survival is to catch it early and treat it. My problem is no QT so I’m behind 8ball to start One of the LFS I trust. Because I don’t have a QT tank and I have a clam I’m limited in what I can do to treat. I’m going to do 2 things. 1) Improve the food and diet. I feed mysis and flakes (regular& veggie) but don’t do garlic. Veggie flakes say there is garlic in it. Will get Kent Maine C and Kent Garlic Extreme. 2) Ich Attack is only thing I can use for meds. Saw a handful of youtube videos and the common theme for all was a combo of good food ich attach. I’m not sure Ill add Ich Attach right away but worried if I don’t it will get worse. Hopefully improved food will help the fish immune system to fight this off.
