Probably absorption, just dose it on up to where you want to be!
I think I’m just a touch under on my volume calculation. I’m dosing for 15g but it might be at 16.
Going to dose the extra 6% tomorrow am - 2.65 ml instead of 2.5.
Once I’m done dosing, I’ll do testing every two days- I’ll see if absorption comes into play at that point. It’s weird though- my first and third QT had zero change from the set point after the last dose, the second QT needed additional maintenance doses every 3-4 days. Same 10g, hob, media format.
That is a bit strange. The joy of the good ol Hanna is it's easy to adjust/compensate if necessary.
New biospira bottle for QT 2... maybe a more robust biofilm?
Is there a formula to figure out how much salt to add to a certain volume of water if your salinity is low?
Sorry for the drive-by... in the weeds with kids and a wife away for past 3 days. 2 more to go...
Updates on Saturday when I get time to breathe
You are the bestest! I look forward to updates!
Pink spotted goby is fully healed. Maybe a little bit of a ‘clumsy’ bite on the right side of the mouth, but no redness or anything else apparent.
Day 10 NFG is today, planning to transfer to DT tomorrow. That makes 6 weeks QT, 7 different drug treatments, 9 water changes of 50% or greater.
I’m sure she’ll be happy to graduate tomorrow.
What kind of pen do you write on the glass with? A paint pen? I looked at them and the odor was so strong! BTW a new FTS is in order! And a fishroom shot too! I will post one too!
Sure thing boss!
I’m taking what feels like my first break in 3 days- watching airline disasters and stuffing my face with hummus right now, though, lol
It’s a chalk marker pen. Zero VOC. Found them in my wife’s art crap, I’ll get a model number for you
Fishroom is in need of a tidy- im putting together my not so secret project whenever I have spare time. Which I haven’t had since Tuesday...
I just noticed the PT has a split dorsal fin.
It’ll heal, right?
They are in copper at 1.83ppm (day 4) and have had a dose of GC (day 5) and a dose of met (day 7)
VOC is noticeable if you sniff it but I can’t smell it when in use
FTS with funky two tone lighting set up
Can you see Toby the Goby in there?
Bottom left? Looking good!
Chalk pens. Got it!
Went down to check the QTs this morning, and my tangs have black ich.
The store I bought them had it 2-3 months ago. So I kinda half expected it.
5 days acclimation to relieve a little HLLE in the PT and get them eating
Day 1: start 3 day copper power ramp up to 1.75ppm
Day 3 pm: confirmed copper power at 1.83ppm
Day 5: GC
Day7: Met. Copper power at 1.78
Day 8: 70% WC due to cloudiness and build up of detritus. Copper power maintained in change water at 1.80
Day9: Met. (Today)
Day 11: GC
Day 15: DT barring any issues
They are on day 9 and got their Met, then I noticed the black spot in the YT
Thinking I will start Prazipro, two rounds five days apart, and keep dosing Met every two days until I’m done with Prazipro . That combo essentially takes the place of the second GC dose.
That’s the plan, but I’m on the tail end of being alone and having two kids off daycare for 3 days , so my judgement might be a little lacking right now. Actually, having two kids off daycare while wife away working DEFINITELY shows a lack of judgement...
Any chance I can have a second opinion?
On a brighter note: pink spotted goby appears fully healed, yesterday was day 10 of NFG. Into the DT today/tomorrow!
Can you upload pics of the fish with black ich?
