From the intervening posts it seems a new brackish tank will be set up for the goby. I'll leave that to you TM as npjpkac will pm you. That will mean the goby with the bacterial infection is separate from the others in freshwater, and the puffer has the ich.

I would treat the ich with Aquari-Sol; in my experience it works well with less stress on sensitive fish. The bacterial I'll leave to TM.

I've not used this myself, and just now I did a search online and got such divergent opinions I wouldn't want to say yea or nay. Perhaps other members have used it and can comment.

Corys are particularly sensitive to chemicals and salt, and there is copper in most ich medications which is why they recommend half dose for sensitive and scaleless fish. I've used Aquari-Sol with my very sensitive characins (pencilfish) and corydoras without any loss, although they clearly do not particularly like it. I never raise the temp, and the ich is gone within a few days. Treatment has to be maintained for several days due to the nature of the ich cycle, and the comment on the Jungle website that one treatment works makes me wonder.

Well, I have been following through with a normal routine...because I don't believe any medication works in one dose...I've never seen Aquari-Sol in my area...I'll have to look again...thanks, Byron
