So Ich hit my DT, I am assuming it was brought on by my Sohal Tang, that since I have recently traded for my Achillies. So I have started Hypo (SG 1.009). It is day three, I have returned the marine betta and my clowns, it was just too much for my QT tank to handle. I have a few questions, I read on this forum that people use baking soda to raise PH, instead of marine buffer? If anyone can explain why this is to me, I would appreciate it. My PH is pretty consistant, although its low 8.0 because I am not running lights on the QT, it gets light from a window, indirect light so I havent really had PH swings. Should I get it up or leave it where it currently is? All the fish seem to be doing ok so far, and even the achillies is starting to eat Nori which is a good sign. I am having to do water changes two times a day, because the tank was not cycled before I started Hypo. If there is anyone that has run Hypo with an uncycled tank, I would appreaciate any tips. I am kinda nervous out losing fish due to the fact that the tank was not cycled. And all the first are showing no signs of ich now. My ammonia levels are decreasing with the more frequent water changes, but where as high as 0.25. I have been using an ammonia detoxifer, but I need suggestions here, should I continue with the hypo and maybe turn up the water changes to get the ammonia to 0.00 or return the fish to the DT, and risk them having another outbreak. Thanks.
