Anampses wrasses are very sensitive to medications. I would take a full week to raise it up to therapeutic copper (I recommend Copper Power), and only use API General Cure to deworm. Get it in & out of meds ASAP, so transfer to a clean tank after 2 weeks in therapeutic copper.
Those are easier to QT. Drop them in @ 1.0, and then take 3-4 days to reach 2.0ppm. However, if they are not eating or something there’s nothing wrong with taking a full week to slowly raise the Cu level.
Fish arrived from LA this morning. I just happened to test the salinity of the bag. It tested at 25ppm. My QT was at 31ppm. So I removed water from QT to use for acclimation + additional thrown out to reduce. Final QT salinity 29.5 PPM, Final acclimation salinity 28.9 PPM.
Fresh out of the bag
Methelyne blue + ammonia binder + air bubbler
Same just further along
Into the QT tank.
My plan is to turn off the top off pump and let the salinity and Cu level rise due to evaporation (1L/day approx) over the next several days. Once the salinity reaches 33ppm I will begin dosing Cu to get to therapeutic level.
So far they both seemed relaxed although have not shown any interest for NYOS golden pods but really wasn't expecting them to jump and beg for food at this point.
Some updates. I picked up a lineatus wrasse yesterday.
Also noticed that the cleaner wasn't out and about with the Tamarin yesteday morning. I did get him to come out and he started swimming around. Had no interest in food and ended up going back to his hiding spot.
Today the lineatus and tamarin are out swimming and eating.
But the cleaner wrasse croaked. Not sure why.
I haven't started bumping the salinity and copper yet since I found a lineatus locally I wanted to add, so I doubt its related to that.
