| || | Ich ridden tank...will just fallowing work???
New to saltwater. I love it!! However, I just lost my maroon clownfish and rusty angelfish to ich
. I set up a quarantine tank (yes I learned about quaratine the hard way) and managed to save my two damselfish (fresh water dip and copper treatment). I have fallowed my main tank of fish (I still have my chocolate chip starfish and anemone in there). I plan on leaving it without fish for 6 weeks. I'm still performing maintenance as usual.
Has anyone had success with just fallowing?? I don't want to return my fish to the tank after 6 looong weeks and then find out I have to start all over b/c the parasite is still in my main tank. I have read about UV sterilizers, etc. I am thinking about getting an cleaner shrimp (I read they eat parasites).
Any advice. Thank you!!
