My 38day old clowns have ick

My 38 day old false percs have ick... I didn't know what to do so I used copper treatment.. The spots are huge on fish that small.... Anyone else ran into this?

Luke, I haven't run into that but I would use Hypo Salinity for it, you might be safe with copper but that is what I would do. Please post a pic for us all to learn from.

Others please chime in if you know something else to try Luke needs our help.

Luke so sorry to hear! Hope the copper helps. When can you start adding garlic to their food? I use garlic almost every time I feed, and I have never had the experience of dealing with ick nor do I want to. Hope your little guys make it through.

Im very bad when it comes to disease, always avoid it so dont know much how to treat, but at the hatchery I use to work when the tech forgot to bleach the sea water we got a lot of amyloodinium and cryptocaryon, they treated safely (even dottyback larvae) by reducing the salinity over the course of 10 hours as low as 1.010 and dosed with this:

always keep the SG low with babies from 1.016 to 1.010-12

hope this helps

I used Melafix when one of my damsels had popeye. The stuff worked great. I hope your babies get better soon.
