    Blenny and ICK

    I put all my fish in the QT tank.Should i put the blenny in as well?
    I'm using Kent RX.P to treat.
    I have a skimmer on the QT tank and hang on filter.QT tank is 20 gal.
    Thanks in advance!

    Why not....it's a fish. :biggrinbo

    Seriously though, it's a good idea to QT all fish. Some here even QT inverts.

    Thanks Pwall!
    I'm off to try to catch him.Is the Cleaner Shrimp should go in QT as well?
    I'm trying to keep my salt levet around 1.016-1.019 while in QT.Is it safe enough for the shrimp? It says on the bottle(Kent RX-P) that it is safe for invertabrates but to use at your own risk.From what i read ICK will not affect invertabrates.

    Thanks!

    I've never heard of a cleaner shrimp getting ick so you're probably ok.
    Keep in mind that you'll have to acclimate the blenny to your QT tank.

    What a guy to catch!
    I had to take out half my LR to catch him.Tried yesterday and gave up.Took water out the display tank this AM to put the LR in ang i got him.He just finish going into the QT tank.I added QT tank water to his display tank water over 2 hours time.He seems fine.
    Now it's waiting time.The only real cure from what i read.Should i wait 4 or 6 week?
    Thanks!
