No Lisa, the ick happened early Nov (1st week) and the tank was medicated about 3 days by then all Cardinals were dead, I added carbon to the filter and have 2 large w/c after that. Thereafter normal weekly w/c. These meds are long gone from the tank when he moved in.

So sorry to hear about your pleco. They are such cool fish aren't they?

I hope you figure out what's going on with your tank.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I doubt I will...IMO all 3 instances (Ick, Algae, Pleco death) are not related to 1 another....just a very unfortunate tank I guess....
