Re: Is this ICH? How do I treat it?

1 small white bump doesn't sound like ich. Ich looks like an evenly-"salted" fish. Possibly just an irritation during transport. You can add Melafix to see if that might help. Can't see photo.

What "good bacteria" did you add? Cycling with fish is barbaric & unnecessary. Very old school. It can cause permanent damage to their skin/eyes/gills.
Have your family's fish lived into their teens?

Other than lots & lots of decor to break up lines of sight--no.

Well then, there has to be a good reason your water turns so acidic. What is your water change schedule?

Much better! I still want to know the pH of your tap water though.
I hope it is just a coral skeleton?

Also, the wood is going to lower your pH. I'd find something different to decorate with.
Get back to me on your tap water.

Wow, that's practically straight urine! Is that what your tap water tests at?
What exact species of puffer do you keep?

Re: 12' Fahaka Tooth trimming- I am so scared I will accidentally hurt him

Hi, Sorry I missed this yesterday! Not to worry--I have done dentistry on a fahaka this size. I used clove oil. I am very surprised that with the great crunchy diet you offer, this is an issue at all.
