ICH?
« on: March 15, 2006, 07:40:05 am »
I think my Bozo has Ich- Is there anyone out there with a QT already set up and running that I could bring him to to treat? Please let me know ASAP as this is my 1st fish and I really don't want to lose him.  :cry:

Also, does anyone know much about RXP? I can't seem to find any, but heard it works good. I would be willing to buy some from anyone who may have some to sell.

yes, I have two Q tanks running right now. I'll be home tonight but call first. You may not want to move the fish. You could instead treat the tank with RXP.

I know, but I can't find it (RXP). I guess Aqua Tropics sold their last bottle. I haven't called "the other place" yet....I guess I will. Also, none of the other fish have it....yet.

You need to follow the directions on the bottle to the letter. Another thing to watch for, if your skimmer does not pull the RXP out then you may want to add carbon on the days you don't dose RXP.

Well, I think I am doing it right. I had to guesstimate on the amount of water in my sump. I am dosing like I have 90 or so gallons of total water. I am doing 7-8 capfuls. My skimmer is pulling foam. I dosed on Thursday night and then again this morning. I just don't know when to expect to see a difference in Bozo. So far it is on him and Haze.

You're only supposed to dose every other day. Be carefull not to overdose as that could kill the tank.
