    its only in the sorority an its a 10gal with a sponge filter, its got a heater... it was stayin at about 78 F but somebody on here told me to lower it to about 74-76 so thats where its at now (after the ich) a few live plants not many... was waiting till i can setup my npts for that... I usually jus use the aqua safe plus conditioner with my water changes that i do 25% twice a week and 75-80% once a month... (was actually cleaning all my tanks now when i noticed this so thinkin of doin 100% on them) I did add some AQ salt in there today 1tsp/gal read somewhere on here that epsom salt was actually better for ich than AQ salt, but i really don't know... have never really had to treat any of my fish before

    fiddler crabs i think... they're pretty ugly but the guy at the fish store said they jus hang out at the bottom nd eat the nasty stuff outta the tank... How would u recommend that i treat them... wish i had my cam so i could post pix for u

    OFL, got a quick question for you... Got some new shrimp and crabs the other day so they were in qt for a couple days (3) finally added them to my tank around 6 last night before work and I come home and 2 of my girls in my soroity tank now have little white spots on them... Is this Ich? I added 1tsp/gal of AQ salt, but I'm honestly not 100% sure what it is on them or how to treat it... If you have any helpful advice that would be great! Thanks

If u have any suggestions or wanna offer some help or advice that would be great... Thanks!
