    Sometimes they ignore the sand any way. I have only QT'd a few wrasses. They would often hide in a small diameter piece of PVC pipe connector piece.

    I believe the general consensus is a small bowl of sand doesn't hurt, as long as you test frequently. I have a bowl of sand for my melanarus and plan on treating with Copper Safe. Think I need to remove the engineer goby and do TTM for him though.

    Was it just used to empty it? Was it flushed after emptying the tank? Absorption would take time I think. Please note, this is my opinion so don't treat it as fact. I'd flush the hose and reuse it. Run a mix of 50/50 water/vinegar through it.

    I think CP is the best option to treat that diverse batch.

    Nope, not ruined.

    Completely agree with this. I reuse hosing between my copper QT and my DT and some of it is silicone. I let it sit in a 50/50 vinegar mix in a bucket overnight and then rinse a lot of tap water through it. Then I let it air dry for a few days to make sure no parasites come along for a ride.

    I bleached it like I usually do if I use it on my QT.

    Then you're good as long as you rinsed it well and let it completely dry.

    Brew12 I know the cp will kill the wrasse though. Would any of what I have on hand work? The CP is seeming to be trouble for me to get.

    It may kill the wrasse. The problem is the copper will likely kill the eels and lionfish. You just don't have a good single treatment option.

    If I could find a place for the wrasse, the CP would be safe for everything else, Correct? Also do you know where I could get CP other then a vet. I went to another vet today to try and get CP and they wouldn't write me a script either.

    You can order it on ebay, but the quality is far from assured. It "might" be the correct stuff at the correct strength but since we can't test for it there is no way to know for sure.

    Would I have any way to know that it worked? I don't see any signs of sickness on them, but I don't trust them in my DT.

    Nope, that is always the down side. You don't know if the parasites are eradicated or the fishes immune system is suppressing them.

    There is one other option.

    You could pick up a black molly and put it in with your other fish when done with the QT treatment. If you still have ich or velvet it will be very obvious when you add the molly.

    Yea I think I found an MD that will write me a script. A local guy told me about him and how he did it for him.

    Excellent!

    Just to make sure, did you use stuff you ordered over the internet or did you have a prescription?
