more info w/ horse problems


thanks everyone 4 the info it is greatly appreciated. still the same problems but let me give you some more info about the situation. P.h even at night is 8.2 ammonia 0 , nitrites 0. my horses dont eat live or frozen since we’ve brought it home 2 days ago. our littlest one (species unknown, but either yellow kuda or h. erectus)breathes heavily has some white spots. My 1st thoght was ichbut I was told horses cant get ich. so far the only thing Ive done is what I did 4 my reef added a U.V sterilizer. I really dont know if it will help my horses but it did wonders for my reef. I have the horses in a60 gal hex with a mag drive 5 Im not sure how many gals an hour but between 4 to 500 gals an hour. plus a maxi jet 400 which does 106 gals an hour plus my sterilizer a setting for betwwen 74 to 146 gals an hour I only have 2 horses (1brazilian and one unknown)4 snails 1 hermit crab. I know thats bad but 50 crabs and 50 snails on order.Im very interested in a fresh water dip for an emergency. but I fear to stress them out. Do you think this 7 watt sterilizer can help my horse. If not is the dip the best thing to do until the sterilizer starts to work.
