Ok guys so I have the auto top off and the salinity holding at 1.008 SG.

I have 1 of my anthias that has a few (small) ich parasites on him. What is the estimated just that they will fall off? I am just curious as to when the clock starts for the 45-days time duration after ich is not present on the fish.

Thanks!

If your at 1.008 SG the clocks starts now. However if you wanna wait till all the ick is off the fish, ick is on the fish 5-7 days then drops off.there still may be a white spot on the fish after 7 days but that's the wound your seeing

Is there anything that resembles Ich (white spots) but isn't Ich?

The one Anthias that originally came into the tank with 'Ich' still has the same white spots on his body and its been almost 2 weeks now. Temp is at 79 degrees shoulld I turn it up to 82 to speed it along?

Yes velvet but the spots are real small like dust and usually a lot more of them. It's possible you are still seeing ick can you post a pic of it. Keep in mind the hypo you were originally at would allow new ick to infect your fish now that your at 1.008 (as you mentioned ) you should see an improvement within 7 days from the time you hit 1.008

That looks like lymphocysts! It's viral it's generally not dangerous. It's is the herpes lol of fish. Post a pic tomorrow try to get a close up and under white light. Lymphocyst look like cauliflower in texture they generally stay on the fish for 10 or more days before falling off and the fish will always have it. It will be brought on generally by stress and it is contagious however that doesn't mean all your fish will contract it.

Well I’m not sure if that’s good news or bad... will it survive hypo? Cause I currently have my tank at 1.008 and there is no chance of me catching these fish unless I tear the tank down and it’s far too big.

Ya like I mentioned it's generally not fatal the only time it usually kills is when it grows on the mouth full or an internal organ. For right know maintain your hypo get pictures of all the fish and post them. It seems odd that all the fish would have lymphocysts at the same time. Did all the fish have spots like this ?

Knock on wood, this is the only fish that has it. None of the other fish as of tonight have any spots in them and they have all been in the same tank for about 3 weeks now.

Good deal if the others had spots I would continue hypo it's possible you have ick and lymphocysts at the same time since they are generally brought on by stress

No spots at all on any of the other fish. I will try and get a couple better pictures today and post them.
