|Tinder||Yeah that whole tank is a lost cause, I'm going to have to purge it then sanitize everthing before it can be used again. Well that stinks.|

|Aheartlessfish||Sometimes its not your fault, sometimes its time/the supplier of the fish that gave you a sick fish...thats the way i see it. if they drop let them drop. but thats a bad attitude to have...maybe thats why i just do plants only lol.|

|Tinder||So in the end, I have beaten most of the ick with Kordon Ick attack and then, once the QT was purchased and set up, Appro Quick Cure. but their where casualties. I lost 1 Zebra Danio and 1 Guppy to unknown causes (different tanks, no meds with the guppy) which neither showed signs of ick. A Golden Dojo Loach in the tank with the mysteryously dead Guppy color has paled and skin to seems to have started peeling off! he does not swim well and i am tarting to see blood pooling where it seems the skin has completely peeled through. I am wondering what this could be and what to do about it. I believe I will have to eutonize this Loach, he is so far gone it would be mean to try and medicate him I think but is this contageous? After reading up on different diseases I thing he either has Tuberculosis (which is AWESOME because Ive had my hands in there the past few days) and septicemia. Well its just time to play the waiting game I guess. and ideas?|

|Tinder||Copy that Heartless, thank you for the speedy result. so the plants can take the salt you think?|

API salt + increase heat to 85ish
works like a charm

Possible Ich in my tank, please help!
Hello all, so upon looking at my tank today I noticed my Sword tail has 2 small white spots on his head. It is a bit paler then the rest of his body, and he is acting a little erratically. I am not sure if this is actually Ich or it was just a spot I have not noticed before, so to be safe I wanted to add some aquarium salt to the tank and bring the temp up a few degrees. My question - can all my fish and plants survive the salt?
7x Zebra Danio
2x Golden Dojo Loach
4x Sword tails
3x Black Fin Tetras
3x Java Fern
1 unidentified Cryoto
1x Rotalia Inidica
2x Amazon Swords
and 2 other low tech plants that I am unsure of. Thank you for the response.
