Anyone try this on a large regal tank?
okay...so what will hypo salinity do to softies and LPS coral?
Freshwater dips have no effect on ich whatsoever, but can provide temporary relief for flukes and velvet. Garlic and cleaner shrimp also have no effect on ich. Please read the ich sticky at the top of this forum and review your treatment options.

is that from your experience?
FW dips are designed to deliver an osmotic shock to the parasite. The hope is that the lower osmotic pressure of FW will cause the TROPHONTS(white dots) to rupture and die.
i had a purple tang that was infested very badly,,real bad. after a series of FW baths it did appear to provide some instant relief. obviously it's not curing anything but in extreme instances, i have found the method to be effective.
