    The DOs and DON’Ts of Quarantine, Mar 11, 2018

    Ok, all fish are out for a second time :/ I think I know ich or velvet got past my qt procedure. I treated a fish with cupramine for 30 days and then used carbon to remove the copper, I left him in their for a few weeks after. I think a cyst must have released torments after the copper was removed.

    And went undected for a few weeks, until I saw my clownfish today with multiple spots and my wrasse flashing & royal gramma flashing excessively.

    My royal gramma looks the worse, I had no choice but put them straight into full strength cupramine. As one qt was empty with no water and the other had a diamond goby that was due to go into the DT. All the fish seem fine in the cupramine though, almost like nothing had happened.

    How quickly will the copper treat the royal gramma as he definitely looked like he was coming down quickly. I caught it fast as everyone was fine yesterday and showed no signs.

    I created quite a sand storm moving rocks and sand to catch them, I hope my corals etc will be fine. If I get an ammonia spike how quickly will it show up on a test kit?

    The rock is about two years mature and the sandbed is about months.

    hard to tell from the photos...might be a freshwater bath and see if they fall off....if not, I am thinking Lymphocytosis (spelling?), but not in the "typical" place to find it.

    You want to qt like any other new addition. Likely run a course of treatment specific to parasites. Check in the fish and disease forum or even post there for more expert advice.

    All puffers "look happy" because of their cute faces and big eyes. There are more than a couple of spots snd they are something to possibly worry about. #humblefish #melypr1985
