I had Africans in my 150 before it was heavily planted. One of the new Peacocks was beaten badly and subsequently developed ich. A local guy that specializes in Africans said 1 CUP of salt per 10 gallons. It wasn't daily and I forget the regimen, but it did stop ich very quickly and effectively. Obviously that amount of salt would destroy plant life. We know copper works incredibly well... but not plant and invert safe. We don't see alot of people posting about their UV experiences. Is that because they have no "disease" experiences and there for nothing to add other than "I have a UV sterilizer and my fish never get sick". We search these forums looking for answers to problems. Someone who never has to deal with ich, columnaris, or NTD would likely pass right over these threads. I think it's worth the investment especially with more expensive inhabitants that are less resilient (Discus, Rams, large schools of cardinals).
