Question, I been not medicating my quarantine tanks unless the fish needs to be medicated (observing ick etc...) Have a sapo puffer with a horn shark for 7 weeks without meds except for praziquantel twice for Fluke I believe they had. Looking at the puffer it looks like one eye has a couple of salt like objects on eye lid. You would think if ick was present it be all over fins etc. since he's been in qt for almost 2 months. I'm thinking prior to treating for fluke he used to rub his face into the crush coral which I think might of caused the blemishes on eye lid. He eats like a pig 2 full clams a day and whole shrimp ( human eat piece). Any advice I would appreciate it. So the question also should all my QT be medicated even if there are no signs of disease!
thanking you in advance Carl

Flukes in the eye would look like what you see below:

Do you think you too much water testing takes a toll on you and your aquarium?
