All my dwarf rainbows and danios look great even with all that salt. They are active and eating, and there are no spots. Like I said, I caught this when only two fish had one spot each, so all is good.
I will still continue for 10 days with snail in his own tub (shrimp are with him too). Sounds like the GS would be fine, but their already out of the tank, so I'll leave it that way.
So, my question is, after 10 days won't there still be salt in the water that would kill the snail? How do I introduce him back? If I have to do a huge water change to get rid of salt, aren't I risking a mini cycle again? I'm wondering how all the bacteria I've grown will be impacted by all these changes.
I guess the good news is, I'll be putting a bunch of real plants back in when this is over, so they can help absorb any ammonia. Also, I've learned to keep a better eye on the heater. I bought a larger heater, which will do a better job of keeping the water at a temp that will prevent ich from coming back, I hope. I've got tank now at 83 degrees. It's a 150watt, and still cranked up I can't get a 25 gal tank over 83 degrees. This is a heater for 30-55 gal. Oh, well.
