    Default What would you do?

    I've had some problems after a re-scape with a breakout of WS. I have 3 fish left, 2 clownfish and a valentini puffer. One clownfish is showing signs of WS but the other two fish are ok.

    Now I want to know what you would all do, not what you should do.

    If the fish are left in the display then I will a UV.

    everyone, this is just to help me make my mind up really, QT is set up and waiting as is the UV.

    If you have the room for a QT then I would, personally I don't, which ever you go for you will have to let the tank fallow for 72 days IIRC

    QT, treat, leave main tank for 6ish weeks and then re-stock.

    Great that you are sticking with it btw.

    if I run uv in the tank will I have to leave it fallow for 6 weeks still? That kills the parasites in the water column doesn't it? So would it still have to be as long?

    I had the same dilema with a Powder Blue Tang. I ran UV, Ozone and fed Garlic. It has cleared up in about 2 weeks and so far, fingers crossed, no sign of coming back!

    QT as you have one set up, best for the fish.

    difficult decision to make,, for me i would leave in the tank and run UV, it has worked for me in the past, I would however leave the tank fallow if the fish didn't make it and quarantine everything before it went in in the future.

    Easy decision for me

    Option 1 - White spot in your tank
    Option 2 - White spot in your tank
    Option 3 - No white spot

    i leave my uv on my tank 24/7 since i bought it had my regal breakout in w/s when it first went in about 5mths ago and not had another breakout since. The only thing i would mention is i have it connected to an external filter with the flow turned right down because i read that it barely kills anything if the flow goes through it to quick
    oo

    Have you considered running ozone instead or alongside UV?

    More effective IMO.
