OK the Cardinal Tetras I have left have ICK how can I kill it and not kill my snails and filters. this is in my 5 gallon QT tank/sons tank.


I added 8 new one for a total of 11 and one week later only 2 cardinal remain.

I am so done with Cardinal they are off the stocking list and neons are back on.

raise temp in tank to over 86 degree's and maintain for a week . should do the trick. adding so many fish to a small water column may have contributed to the ich. ICH is present in all tanks at all times even those with uv sterilizers . Stress and swings in water param will bring it out though


hope this helps. i always treat ich with heat . safest way IMHO

increase aeration also forgot to add
