So Plumbob has been in his 1 gallon hospital tank for 10 days now for ich. He's been getting 100% water changes every day, aquarium salt treatment, stress coat, and raised temps. Ick is gone, but I'm waiting to put him back into his tank to make sure the little buggers are dead in there.
Past couple of days I've been slowly getting rid of the salt and lowering the temperature. He's now back to no salt and temp at 80f.
Ever since I started putting in less salt I've noticed he's getting more lethargic and resting more and more on the bottom, on the thermometer or the heater. He's been eating until this morning he showed no interest in the pellets. He did get kinda stressed last night doing the water change, he actually fought against getting sucked into his cup.
He has no other symptoms. The ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate are all 0 due to the water changes. I ran outside and grabbed a couple of dried oak leaves, washed them, and put them in his tank before I had to go. I got some frozen daphnia today and I'll see if he'll eat some of that when I get home tonight, just in case.
Is there anything else I should be doing? Should I be concerned yet or just wait and see? Risk putting him back in his regular tank and see if he perks up and hope the ich is dead?
I'm a worrywart, sorry.
