Anyone any ideas?
(And yes I will switch back to my old conditioner once this bottle is used up).
hi there Angel079
re your 2nd post, i was actually surprised to see you asking a question for a change, i only found this site late last night and activated my membership this morning but i have been reading the site almost all day and you are everywhere with such good and seemingly knowledgeable advise receiving praise from many
however you seem to have got quite a few replies now so lets hope its helped you some like you help so many others
i couldnt possibly make my first post, giving advice to someone else, i mean isnt almost written in stone that a newbies first post is always a question, however i dont have any questions at this time and while i dont want to give advice re question, not just for being a newbie here but also to fishkeeping, a lil over 6 months, i would like to post my observation
after reading this entire thread i feel there has been such a digression on the subject of ferts being wiped out by water treatments and whether the same would happen for meds or not that one vital component has been missed
you mentioned that you are currently treating for Ich, well i dont think you need worry about what the water treatment would do to your meds, its the water change in itself which will do most harm - afaik
you should not do a water change during a course of ich treatment ?
apologies if i am wrong, but thats my understanding of the situation and please feel free to flame me if i am
unfortunately i expect my observation even if correct is maybe a little to late now as its 3 days on from your OP, however i am just glad that i found this gr8 site and hopefully one day i'll be around and able to offer some sound advice to someone at the point at which it is asked
