even though the ICH is not on every boraras, I decided to treat all the fish regardless. I temporarily relocated the boraras to my 3.5gallon (which I've kept running with the cycled filter media in case I had to use it as a treatment tank) put a heater set to 86F and a small powerhead for aeration. Added 2 teaspoons of salt which I diluted before hand. Threw in some driftwood and java moss. The boraras seem at ease and not stressed. I know from experience in the hobby what a disaster ICH can be. and experience should've told me to quarrantine the fish before I put them in the mini. another lesson on being patient- reminding me there's no need to rush in this hobby.
