View Full Version : Ich...I think...confirmation?

Lost three fish over the last couple of weeks. Maybe four as I haven't seen the yellow watchman goby in 2-3 days. My diary wrasse was looking a little different this morning and I caught these pictures. If you zoom in it becomes more apparent.

It's hard to tell in the pics but it does look like there are spots. Is there a film over the fish as well?

LFS and I looked at the pictures and decided to treat. Pulled the wrasse and lawnmower blenny from the tank. Fresh water dip then Ruby rally bath and into the copper treatment tank. Copper only at 0.25ppm and bringing it up over a few days.

Sounds like you have a pretty good plan. The ruby bath should help them heal too!

The best way to see ich in my experience is to look at the clear side fins. If you see spots or splotches in them, then you probably have ich. Spots on the body are harder to see, especially when they fall off. Transparent side fins are the best way to see ich.

+1 sounds like your doing a great job with the treatment. Most people like chelated cu for wrasses but cupramine has been used with good results also just bring levels up over 5 days unless they take a turn for the worse then bring it up faster. Good luck
