HEY! I've been a longtime reader on this forum and I've come to the point where I cannot find the answer to my question. What is the best way to treat freshwater velvet? I've read different methods from salt baths, to melafix, to CuSO4 and I can't find a single tried and true method. Because you may ask the tank parameters are in check. (0 NH4, 0 NO2, 10-20 NO3 depending on when I check, pH 7.0-7.1) I check 2-3 times to week. Its a 5 gallon tank with a Betta fish and some ghost shrimp for cleaning. Out of the blue my fish was covered in gold dust! I've had him for 6th months now and this came out of nowhere. Yes, I know the nitrogen cycle. I have three tanks and I'm currently in the process of setting up at 125 gallon reef tank! I've never had to deal with velvet but now I am freaking out! Any help is appreciated!
