I take it you have someone who is looking after your tank while you are gone.

Anyway, go to lfs and buy some garlic extreme. Phone first to see if they carry it.
If not you can buy garlic extract from a health food store.
Soak dry food in the garlic extreme for ten minutes a feed the fish.
Use only dry food as you want the garlic to soak into the dry food as the whole idea is to get as much in the fish as possible.
You also need to feed the food 2-3 times a day and only garlic soaked food.
Good luck

Thanks for the advice. I actuall have been using garlic for the past week, I was told by the lfs to add reef solution to the water also which I have been doing. I also have a cleaner shrimp that was cleaning her the other day.
But... sad to say I did take her back to the store for them to try and treat, since I am going away for 2 wks. Sucks that I don't get her back.:cry:
