I have a fairly new 10 gallon planted tank. Recently I noticed what I believe to be Ich on my blue ram cichlid. The fish seemed to be getting better when I began treating the tank with Seachem's Para Guard- the Ich disappeared from the tail fin, but now the fish has faded in color, the red eye is almost all black, the belly looks slightly bloated and the fish does a strange tremor type shake. At the moment it is resting on the gravel, I suspect trying to die which makes me sad and I don't know what else I can try to save her. Any suggestions?
I usually start out with 6-8 juvenile angels in a 40gal tank. Feed them a mixture of flake food, frozen bloodworms and frozen brine shrimp. Usually after a year or more they will begin pairing off. I would suggest at least 1-2 10 gallon tanks for spawning/raising fry.
