FloridaBoy,

Yeah, at this point I'm not really hoping on any medicative treatment. My plan now that I have a proper diagnosis is to keep the clown in quarantine and let the main tank remain fishless until the end of August (8-9 weeks). I also will add a UV sterilizer in the next week or two, so I'm hoping that will help eradicate any free swimming parasites in the main tank. Assuming the clown survives (he's still kicking!) he'll remain in the QT for this period.

I also realize this whole thing is my own damn fault. I'd been adding corals over the last month but didn't quarantine them since I have no lighting on that tank. I did do iodine dips which I hoped would eradicate any pests. But I guess not. Sad

My own mistake and now my poor fish paid for it.

Muskwit, thank you for your support. This has been a trying period but a learning experience as well. Make sure to add a quarantine tank to your shopping list. Wink

oh, what a shame - but at least it had good care - sometimes these things are sent to try us. Sad
