Which Additional meds for QT?

Post by jamesbowers » Sat May 25, 2019 10:45 pm

Hi everyone.

Long story short I have ich in my tank so all fish are going into QT. I am slowly increasing copper levels using cupramine and salifert test kit.

I was wondering in the UK what products can be soaked in the food to help with any internal nasties whilst they are in QT?

Seems like alot of the American stuff is not for sale over here?

Also what would you reccomend to treat uronema in my anthias and chromis?

As ich is on the outside of the fish, not in the gut, feeding them with a medicated feed will not help at all.

Raising the temperature to 30 C might help. It will certainly help, but 30 C is a bit high for quite a few fishes / only the ones able to withstand 30 C will benefit from it.
