Let me elaborate on my question :I'm sorry, I don't understand - FOWLR or not, the treatment should be 30 days I think. I've never treated CP that long. Even 30 days is tricky if you don't have a spectrophotometer to measure the remaining CP.
The fallow period for velvet in fishless tank is 6 weeks. I am not sure if this is because cysts stay in hard surfaces like in ich for up to 6 weeks??
I am treating inside my FOWLR so even after 30 days fish will be in same tank, with same rocks and if there are cyst that may live up to 6 weeks in that tank I would need to keep CP concentración 6 weeks.
I am managing the concentration of CP in tank doing water changes with CP medicated water every 2 days. I already have pure pharmaceutical grade CP and I am adjusting the Water to 15mg/l of CP ( not adjusting to base as I did the first time). The treatment seems to be working, the one that looked preaty bad looks clean now and all fish are eating.
Please tell me what you think
Thanks a lot
