I am new here but thought I would get started.
New to this and made a few of the newbie mistakes.
I have three tanks my first is a ten gallon, my second still in the possess of setting up is a fifty five gallon. And my third I got today as an isolation tank.
Ick has hit my goldfish and I lost two to it but my third is in the isolation tank recovering after treating both tanks for it with ick guard and garlic.
My ten gallon tank is a little crouded but will be solved when the large tank is up and ready. All this fish are small and don't seem to bothered with each other and most will be in the larger tank in a few weeks.
I have one Goldfish in isolation, a platy which will remain in the ten gallon, two striped Raphael catfish, one African lemon yellow chiclid and five tiger barbs. I also have two suckers. I know alot for one tank but they will be fine in the larger tank when its set up.
It seems that the ick attacked only the goldfish and they were hit bad but it has ignored the other fish. I was wondering if there is a strand that only likes goldfish or is it just due to my mistake of having goldfish with barbs?
