Question about treating Ich with tank contents
Okay here goes -
I have Ich in my tank - I know why - I didn't quarantine the new fish from the fish store - (2 platy and 2 clown loaches)
Sorry to say, it has already claimed 1 platy and 1 male mollie (meaning they have several spots -not dead)
I have read that raising the temp and adding salt helps -
So can I add salt with my current tank stock?
Oh and I have two kinds of salt - Top Fin conditioning salt (look like table salt) and API Aquarium salt (looks like epsom or rock salt) - if I can use salt - which one?????
Size 55 gallon
(and Yes I KNOW it is over stocked)
2x Congo Tetra
2x Kuhli Loach
2x Clown Loaches - are babies and I'm holding them until my brother gets his 90g cycled
Did a 50% water change today and readings are:
Temp 80.1 F
Ammonia - 0 **a little over because of water change - tap is .25 but I used amquel+ and stress coat+
Nitrate - less than 5
Thanks for any advice - even if it is not constructive - ;-)
There are a number of issues with use of salt on loaches. I would recommend against it. This is a useful read.
