I would like you to put in 10 drops in the tank... As for the silver baths I would increase it to 6 drops now :)

Thanks Koko.

 

So I'll treat the main tank with 10 drops following my large water change (tomorrow). Do I treat once and leave until next water change and then add another 10, or do I add 10 drops/day?

 

As for silver baths, I'm not doing any at the moment so can't 'increase'. Do you want me to do these alongside the main tank treatment too?

 

I think you mean 8 drops per 2 gallons for the dip. Is that right?

 

Also, are the dips for Winston only or for Dad as well? If for both, can they go in together or do I need to use 'fresh' silver solutions for each of them?

 

Thanks x

Well lets just to the tank for now then hun... I would like you to add the silver now then add it back in 2 days later or when you do a water change too. :)

 

You dont need to do a water change with silver before adding it. :)

OK. I'm doing a smaller change tonight (90 litres) so will add 10 drops tonight.

 

I'll do a larger change tomorrow (150 litres) so will add another 10 then.

 

The next change will be on Saturday (150 litres) so I'll add 10 then.

 

Or am I only supposed to add back in what I've removed during the WC?

 

One other thing... and I hope you don't mind me asking... why only 10 drops? This seems really low in comparison to the ratio for dips. I realise dips are just that, dips, so can be more concentrated for short-term exposure, I'm just surprised at such a big difference.

 

I'm not questioning you...honestly...I trust you completely!! I just wondered.

 

All hail the mods!!  :teehee

Baths are more intense kind of treatment...

 

In the tank the silver will cycle through the water and killing any bad bacteria in the tank. So we dont need as much in the tank as for a bath. Plus putting it back in after a water change will help.

Nope thats good hun. :)

 

Oh please ask questions hun we all are learning and questions are great :) Makes it more understandable for everyone :)

This thread has become too long!  We get terribly confused reading 6 pages.  

 

Please make a new thread.   Start by filling out the form again,  summarize what you have done so far, and describe the current condition of the fish.
