Per usual, dealing with some fin rot issues but I got this guy the other day...



He's had his first salt bath and he seems very happy :]

i was very surprised at how well it went. i'm def not saying NOT to be careful, but the guys just swam around as normal. It didn't seem stressful for them in the least. And Viktor's Ich is almost COMPLETELY gone after 2 salt baths. It's also shown to be effective for the fin rot I'm dealing with thus far!

Treat him 7 days past when the last spot goes away. Ich is one of those tricky one the the spots going away means it is multiplying in the aquariums substrate.

Yea I guess I didn't make that clear :/ By 'gone' I meant 'off of his body'. He and Lucian both have been out of their regular tank for 3 days and will remain out of their tank for AT LEAST 7 days, if not more, to continue treatment.

Most importantly, I'm super stoked with how quickly the Salt Bath helped in conjunction with QuICK Cure as opposed to JUST the medication. Thank you for all of your help!





And thanks for the comments!
