  1. Default clown with white specs?


    0 Not allowed!
    hey guys,

    i was looking at my clown tonight and noticed that he has some tiny white specs on the fins, swims and eating healthy. could this be ick?(ich)

    parameters:
    temp:78f
    nitrates: <.5ppm
    ammonia: 0ppm
    10% water changes weekly plus daily top off
    water is at 1.026

    if it is ick(ich) how do i get rid of it fairly fast? can i just raise the temp up? or let him be and see what happens, he is the only fish in the tank.

    If there is no spots on the body, it could be parasites

    I had to treat one of my clown fish for parasites that sounds a lot like your discription.

    They are more noticable on the fins and that is where they are the most tolerable. If its ich it will move to the rest of the fish very quickly. It cant be treated effectively in the display tank. Dont believe any of the ads for so called reef safe ich treatment. If in wont harm a coral then it wont harm ich either.
    Remove the infected fish to a qt and treat with cupramine immediatly. Get a seachem cu test kit and follow the directions for cuprmaine to the letter.

    Drip acclimate him to the new qt. If you got the route of using cu just keep in mind that the qt tank and all items in it are strictly off limits to inverts. If its ick you gotta get him out of the dt asap. Once they drop off him they will just be there waiting to happen again.

    since i just set it up, should i not put any kind of live rock in there?

    Do you have any removale media from the tank he was in? It is best to not have any porous material in a qt as it will absorb any meds needed and make dosing difficult. The way to run a qt isto syphon any detritu daily and do small water changes to avoid ammo. Use prime at a elevated dose to detox any ammo as well.

    Below is some guidlines for QT'ing marine fish

    http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aqua...ad.php?t=77037

    The only thing that I have been doing differently is to use water form the DT to set-up and complete water changes in the QT tank. That helps the accimation process be less stressfull when moving fish into the DT tank, plus it will help to reuse at least some of the old water from the DT tank

    Just remember to provide a lot of hiding spots for the fish while in QT and no really bright lights

    Make sure it is ich before you treat it.

    Ich kinda looks like your fish has salt on it, check out images on google.

    I once had a fright that a fish had ich and it turned out to be microbubbles.
