You're doing a great job. Your fry have been suffering from ick for some time but you managed to keep them alive. I hope they all make it.

Keep up the good work.

I am curious on how your ick treatment is going. I know you said the bigger ones are looking better. If you have some time later I would like to see pics. I hope they are all doing better. I also wonder if you went with the full dose of medicine at the end and how much salt.

Here per your request. The fries in here are 4 weeks +4 days. Ick is still there but less now than before. Next week or so I will move them to the new tank. The dose of Aquarium Salt is 1/2 teaspon/gal (half of adult dose). Coppersafe is full dose as directed. I wonder if the water conditioner neutralize the copper. I think they do at least partially because water conditioners is mainly sodium thiosulfate (copper reacts well with sulfate too to produce CuSO4).

Basics on doses
1gram per litre is equivalint to 1ppt (parts per thousand) or about 4 gram/gal
A level teaspoon holds approx 6 grams of salt.
0.1ppt is enough to help reduce nitrites.



Fry and small fish arenít tolerant of salt so salinity should never be more than 0.5ppt or they could die
0.5ppt = 0.5g/L or 20g/10 gal or about 3.3 teaspoon/10 gal. Since my tank never fill to the top I used about 3 teaspons for about 8 gal of water.

5 Weeks + 4 Days

They are almost clean from ick. Today they are 5 weeks and 4 days. They are smaller most other breeders. But they are plaket. Usually you do not want plaket to grow up so fast. In Vietnam I used to keep my plaket together for 8 months before jars them.
