I didnt want to start a new thread on this, ( there are too many with my name on them already.... ) so I am posting here... hope someone see's it!!
today I found out what I think is ich is in my tank. so I ran to walmart, got some ich clear by jungle , and a one gallon tank cause I didnt know if it would kill my snails..
Now, I put my snails in the one gallon, ( and my clams)
I put in tank water from the old tank ( I had asked in the help section but noone awnsered and I needed to get this done... ) I put in egg shells and food. all the snails and clams are moving around. have been for a few hours.
Well I treated my tank, and decided to go back to putting salt in it too. Now I know that snails dont like salt, BUT, can get used to it. I used to have salt in my tank, then when I got snails I quit putting it in. decided I might need to restart to keep the ich and all down..
SO my question is this.:
Since I cant very well adapt the snails to the salt slowly in the other tank ( I am only gona do the one rounded tablespoon per 15 gallons) I wanted to try and get them used to the salt slowly in the 'quarentein' tank. so should I put in a granuel of salt daily? or 3 granuels daily till I get up to 1/15 of a tablespoon of salt in the one gallon?? I fiqure that is about 5-7 granuels.. ( my ciferin aint real good... )
I dont want to shock them when I put them back in the big tank..
PS. yes I am blonde..
