    Unhappy Clwon Fish

    I found out last night that my clown fish has a white dot under the fin, what should I do? It happen 1 month ago and I catch him and do the fresh water bath, I don't want to do it again because I feel that when I catch him, I stress the whole tank. Any solution? Someone told me that it is normal, just leave it, should I listen to them?

    It's hard to say without a picture, but small white dots usually means ick. if you notice a few more developing over the next few days i would treat the system. or a uv light helps stop initial population. If you have corals and invertebrates i would use protomarin coral treatment. its a gentle cure for inital stage diseases. if you dont have corals or inverts, i would skip to proto marin intensiv. both made by aquarium munster.

    i'm with john, garlic will do wonders.
    try to incorporate it to every feedings if you can.. and this forever.
    its a good general practice.
    you can simply take fresh garlic and use a regular garlic pressing thingy... he he
    and mix it in the food.. wait a bit and give it to your fish.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    also, flakes aren't all that good.
    you should try to make your own batch of food.
    its not that hard to do and will cost you less on the long run.

    basically mix garlic, selcon, raw uncooked shrimp, smelt or other whitefish,
    them dump all into a bole, add unfrozen mysid packs and cyclopeeze and spirulina.
    mix together. wait ~1h for juices to blend in. then make yourself either ice cubes or just zip lock bags with this stuff and serve as usual

    search for my thread on diy food if you need more details.
    adjust proportions to your tank's inhabitant's needs.

    my achilles still have some ich seems ok a bit now but like you guys said mix with garlic liquid or soak to fish food it works well though and i also bring down the salinity level to 0.22. i normaly kept my salinity between 0.23 to o.24. i dont find or any re action on my coral frags so l'll let it keep that salt level until my achilles get to used to it. :b11:
