Chloroquine Phosphate treatment to display tank finished and the copepods are back with a vengance!
After I dosed CP to my DT, I was worried that the CP would last forever. Fortunately it didn't. Here is a recap below for anyone that might do as I did and medicate a fish only tank with CP. I'm no expert, just a hobbyist, so take my experience for what that's worth. Recap: I initially dosed CP at the recommended level of 40mg/gallon into my DT. I didn't experience any ammonia issues and the biological filtration seemed to continue working as far as the skimmer goes. All algae died off the rocks. The fish were fine but all inverts died. Most of the copepods also died. The glass on the DT stayed very clean during treatment. I did two 20% water changes after the first month and another 20% water change just recently. I skimmed very wet after I got to the 1 month mark. I also ran carbon after the first month was over and some more recently. After the second month I added a bottle of copepods. I didn't see much pod activity at first but more recently the copepods multiplied and returned to excessively healthy levels as you see in the video. New inverts and snails are all doing fine now. In all, the tank is back to normal and there are no parasite issues to worry about. It was close to 90 days from day 1 of CP treatment to get my DT back to normal, which was longer than I expected. At least it got back to normal. The dosage instructions followed: Typical dosage for quarantine is 40mg/Gallon (app. 1/8th tsp./10gallon) for ten days. This is a one dose treatment. If water changes need to be performed to reduce ammonia, then chloroquine phosphate needs to be redosed for amount of water changed. 10g treats 250 gallons...25g treats 625 gallons...50g treats 1250 gallons....100g treats 2500 gallons. For treatment of existing*Cryptocaryon irritans(ich), Amyloodinium ocellatum (marine velvet) and brooklynella (brook) up to 80mg/gallon (app.1/4th tsp./10gal) can be used.

How to recognize and "treat" Marine (Saltwater) Velvet
Velvet can be deadly to an aquarium. In this video I go over the life cycle, signs and symptoms, and different methods on how to treat velvet.
Quarantine Method Updated
Similar to the Tank Transfer Method the principle idea behind this is that you don't need to cycle a separate tank for quarantine. Whether you quarantine for one week with this method or six weeks you don't need to set it up ahead of time. This is a big plus. I believe many hobbyist don't bother with quarantine because they don't want to maintain another tank. Well you don't need to. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=phw5fQWXRLQ&t=6s&list=PLpxKaErPi2TsZ8GxKWC0yz1GSdKmIODAK&index=1

Marine velvet(Amyloodinium ocellatum) in microscope
This appears to be marine velvet(Amyloodinium ocellatum) at 800x The first half of the video shows a group of dinospores(free swimming stage) and the second half shows what appears to be an early tomont or mature trophont that fell off the fish. This is in a water droplet that was collected after a 5 minute freshwater dip of an infected passer angelfish. The large trophont falls off the fish due to osmotic pressure, then can be seen with the eye in the dip water, frequently referred to as looking like 'snow'. The sample droplet was collected to attempt to capture and observe several of the released trophonts. As a warning to fellow fish-keepers, this video was take more than 6 hours after the slide was prepared, so the live dinospores are able to live in pure freshwater for a significant time.

Medic by Polyp Lab day 20!
I am HAPPY to say there is no signs of ich on any of my fish after 20 days. I kept up with the dosing twice a day for 20 days. The maximum amount of days recommend. Now I can sleep again in the mornings. So I am excited about that😁 I am just going to say if you decide to use this product. Do not skip a day. I can not 100% agree with the product killing ich as claimed during the 2nd and 4th stage of the parasite's life cycle, because there is NO scientific fact of it killing the parasite ich. Just word of mouth. I hope the tips and information helps you out with a better understanding how to "live with ich" so it does not rare it's ugly face again in your tank. I will recommend the product only because of my results. Every tank is different. Every person is different.
