So I have a Flame Angel in QT. I thought everything was good with him, hoping it would be a quick QT before putting into the display tank. But 2 days ago, I noticed 4 white specs on him (ich) . I began Hypo and am now at 13ppt, 8.1pH, Ammonia/Nitrite 0, Nitrate 10. However, I looked on him this morning and there are no white spots, not even smaller white spots where the original ones were. I thought the trophont stage was suppose to be a couple days? When it digs into it's skin, does it disappear and unseen? Can they "shake" off the parasite when it tries to dig in, or are the white specs at the stage where it's already in the skin? Does Hypo affect ich that fast? Tonight I noticed that he was rubbing against one of the PVC piping, but no evidence of white spots. He's eating great (garlic soaked food) and breathing/swimming seems normal. I'm planning on hypo'ng him for another 4wks unless someone says otherwise, but just wondering what happened to the ich on him. Also, after my outbreak in my display tank, it's gone fishless, going on 7wks. I have some cleaner shrimps and crabs. I bought a UV sterilizer and have been running it since the outbreak. Question is, should I be running that thing 24/7? Flow rate is set at low gpm to mainly kill parasites. Since it's been on, I noticed the water has been much more clearer too, so would want to keep it on all the time if possible.
