Noticed Ich on my fish yesterday. Read a lot, watched youtube videos, got the advice of my LFS guy that i trust...First dose of salt and 13 hours later...All my fish are dead.
I must have turned the temp up too much for that short time? i was between 75-78 now i am between 78-82 but closer to the 78 side.
There is nothing i can do now but move on. It may sound heartless but trust me, i am very disappointed in myself. I am really sad to see these guys go. Didn't think i cared that much when they were still around but like the saying goes "you don't know what you have until it's gone." But for this noob, what is the next step?
I had removed my live plants so that the salt would not kill them. Should i do a water change now to go ahead and dilute the water, re-introduce plants, and start the cycle over? Ir is there something else i need to do since fish died in my tank. Obviously there was ich...do i need to continue treatment or will a fishless cycle take care of that for me? From my understanding they will die off with no fish to host them.
Thanks guys. sorry you had to read the bad news of my lame mistake. Please hold your flame comments as i know i effed up and i am going to do everything i can to not repeat the same mistake.
