Did you get your parcel yet. It says that it is in UNIONDALE, NY

I am not sure just keep the salt in the tank for now and see what happens. You will know if more spots start.

I have an Oranda that does the same thing when I go over 1.5 tsp of salt. He will bottom sit and he acts totally weird. You could remove 33% of the water and this would bring you down to 0.2% salt and see how your fish does.

a rise in pH shouldn't stress them too much tho.

the ich could make them bottom sit. if you are 100% sure of the dose I would not lower the salt.

You should check your tap water PH and then also check you tank water PH use 2 bottles and compare them to see if there is much of a difference. My tap water PH is 7.4 and my and my tank water is about 7.7 - 7.9 So I have to use a bubbler to raise the Ph before it goes into my tank this way there is very little change.

I would leave all the fish in the 29 gal and keep both filters on the 29 gal. You need both filters to filter the tank properly. I would just remove about 33% which is 1/3 of the tank of water to bring the salt down to 0.2% first and ses how your fish does.

You Will need Salt to GO through the nitrite cycle unless you do major water changes because I sent you a test kit called Nitrite written on it. When you test with that kit you have to make sure that the water stays at the light blue color which is 0. It will harm your fish if you don't.

Maybe I could call big ALS and get them to send you some salt. I could pay for it so that you could keep your fish in one tank.
