D: Oh my gosh, Matt! I'm so sorry for this latest development. I really really hope the balas don't succumb to ich, too. Please keep us updated. Wishing you the best!

My concern with the medication was that it might be under dosed, and not killing the ich. I got my copper tested today and it was lower than I would have expected. The medicine calls for .25 ppm in freshwater and I was lower than that. So I added another dose when I got home.

The water in the dwarf puffer tank showed no trace of ammonia or nitrites, so I guess the media from the established tank worked. The are entertaining fish.

Edit: Didn't see the messages on this page.

Thanks guys. I am not super happy some of the Balas are showing spots. I removed the carbon from my aquaclear and added another dose. I am going to go in Thursday and test my copper. If it is still low I'll take apart the canister and remove the carbon from there. As some of you know I had disastrous results the last time I messed with the canister.

sorry about the ich and the losses. I do miss a lot...
I agree: wait until the ich passes and give it time to settle...

Found a dead Bala this morning. This surprised me because they just started showing spots yesterday and they only have a couple, not covered like the clowns were.

Things are not looking good in the 220 Gallon Tank of Death. We're pretty discouraged.

Another dead Bala. Again, barely showing signs of Ick. My "dream" aquarium is turning into my nightmare aquarium.

Those poor Balas were beautiful fish, they got along with everyone in my 55 gallon silver dollar tank, were always active and never shied away from the glass when I approached.

I've got an appointment this afternoon and afterwards I'm going to try and get to the LFS to test the copper levels in my water.

God help me, my Congos are probably next.
