Sebae Clown has marine ich.

Postby Roon » Wed Apr 24, 2013 9:41 am

My Sebae Clown has developed a nasty ich. I am using Hypo-salinity ( 1.008-1.009) as cure.

Tank specifications:

Size: 1.5'x.1'x1'= 11 gallons

Decorations: Aragonite bed, Dead rocks

Filtration: SOBO WP-130IF (600 Ltrs/hour)

Water parameters: Ammonia: 0 ppm
Nitrite: 0 ppm
Nitrate: 15-20 ppm
pH: 7.9
( Test Kits used: Tetra test kits, last measured 5 days ago. )

Livestock: Sebae Clown (Amphriprion sebae) Harptail Blenny ( Meiacanthus mossambicus)

The tank has been running for 10 months now with few minor complications until this showed up.


For now, the ich is gone and the fish is moving around as opposed to sulking in the corner and also taking food. Experts please elucidate on the probable ways of preventing the disease and if at all happens , steps needed to follow. Thanks in advance. :)


( P.S. I have gone through links and other forums. But would really appreciate some advice from experience from the residing memebers here.) :)

if the ich has entered your tank its never gonna leave.. but ur fishes can develop not to be easykill by it.. but i will suggest treating the fish in other tank so that when adult ich falls off from the fish it does not start the cycle back again in the tank.. u can transfer the cured fish from the other tank after 15-30 days of no noticeable trace of ich is visible..
