A sweet shot I got of the BTAs after I fed them! Taking the damsel back, he's being an ass to everyone now

Well reefers my fish are all in QT, I have no clue how they contracted ich! I quarantined all of the fish before they were even introduced, my guess is the cysts probably cam on the last coral frags I put in the tank, kinda shitty but all fish are active and eating, treating with CP so let's see how it goes

Good you caught it fast. Same thing happened to me... AGAIN. Once I put fish back in the aquarium, I'm going to QT all corals and inverts.

me too! Thanks for the good wishes

Nice tank! Sorry about the ich, how long do you QT for?

thank you! And I quarantined for three weeks each fish, no signs at all and it's been a solid month with the damsel and two months or so with clowns, outbreak started 2-3 days ago but I thought it was my eyes at first, I just started the chloroquine phosphate, have you tried it yet?

They do say QT 8-12 weeks. Maybe it was hiding in the gills. Not sure why it decided to go full blown though. Maybe the damsel being a jackass stressed everyone out? You did say he didn't get mean till recently?

 

Just tried CP recently, have a damsel in QT. No signs of Ich but I hear CP is pretty gentle compared to copper so went ahead with treatment anyways because I don't want to QT the full 8-12 weeks....tooo long. So far so good.

yea true and once he's cleared I'm taking his ass back to the LFS haha but I've heard nothing but good things about CP so I have my fingers crossed! I should have done it as a precautionary measure but at the three week mark I didn't see anything and I used paraguard which builds slime coat, he had a damaged fin and it healed up very quickly, I did 80mg/gallon since they were already infected I'll keep you updated

I'd love to have a BTA. I'm just so worried about it moving around and stinging other corals.

Do they like little flow or high flow? I'm not sure where else I could put it other than the rock in the middle of my tank, but that rock gets a ton of flow from the filter.

mine have moderate flow, I think higher flow makes them less bubbly lol but just set it in the middle and see what happens, that's what I would do
