Do you think the damaged is reversible?
I think it should be, if the stressor is removed. (In this case, that may be the CP.) I wish I could guarantee it, but guarantees are hard to come by for me lately . . .
Ok yea cp is gone now. I'll have to use copper I guess. I wanted to stay away from copper but no such luck
It’s not so bad when you have a Hanna copper checked and a reliable copper product such as Copper Power!
I have all of that it's just Wrasse are very sinssensi and I have over 1500 dollars worth of Wrasse in this qt tank.
Oh I’ve been there, and was currently until an infection took out the wrasse. Lost two supermale in two days. Believe me, I get it. It’s these gram negative bacterial infections that are killing me... hit in less than 24 hours and seem to be quite common.
I agree. I just finished 2 weeks of furan2 metro and Kano. I don't play I treat for ick last most fish can handel ick for a while if they are eating. But bacterial infections kill way too fast. Hopefully now I can do copper and get them all in the dt. Once they are there I'll feel so much better
I have a chestnut blenny (cirripectes castaneus) in QT right now. Blennies weren’t on the list above. I was hoping to use copper power. Do you foresee any issues?
Blennies are fine in copper IME.
Has anyone used CP on bird Wrasse and broomtail wrasse?
I have not. I probably wouldn't risk it.
I have 3 lions 2 eels the two Wrasse a yellow Tang a panther grouper and a Marine betta.
Is there any way to treat them all in the same tank? I have already fw dipped them all and gave them a bath in reef rubby. They are in a qt tank together now. It was a fresh set up.
The lions and eels won't tolerate copper. The two wrasses may not tolerate Chloroquine. I don't see any way around NOT setting up two QTs for this, unless you wanna roll the dice on the wrasses + CP.
Yea that's what I was thinking. The only problem is the broomtail is not small. He is about 7.5 inches. What's the smallest you think I can get away with for him. Could I use a big rubermaRub tote?
Also how long will the dip and bath keep the symptoms at Bay for? Can I do another round? I really do not want to lose any of these fish.
Something like this ought to do the trick: https://www.target.com/p/sterilite-...ge-bin-clear-with-gray-lid-29gal/-/A-14757117
Not long, if the fish are being put right back into an infected environment. 48 hours (for velvet), 72 hours (for ich) if placed in a sterile QT after the dip + bath.
Ok thanks. I was just worried about tonight. I will get them set up tomorrow with all the right stuff. How fast do you think I can raise the copper for the to wrasse? Will copper be absorbed by the plastic of the tote?
Should I do another fw dip or bath before I start the CP and copper for the wrasse?
If using chelated copper, you can drop him in @ 1.0ppm and then take 2-3 days to reach 1.5ppm.
Thanks, can I continue to dip and bathe them to keep the symptoms down? If so how often?
