Will ich meds kill the cycle
Will ich meds kill the cycle in a new tank?
Malachite green and formalin can. Use salt.
Which fish is affected?
One angel fish has a couple spots.
The tank has 2 angels 1 gourami 1 goby 2 corys 1 pleco.
The ammonia is 0.025, nitrite is 0.0.
What species is the pleco?
How about the cories and goby?
Where were the spots found?
Are they absolutely white spots?
Here's the info for ich.
What species is the pleco? common, not sure looks like sailfin pleco in book.
How about the cories and goby? juli cory and knight goby, pretty sure
Tank size? 72
Filtration? 2 x peng 350
Where were the spots found? Rear fin and top fin
Are they absolutely white spots? 1-3 on angel 1-3 on gourami moved to QT
( went from nine to seven with the move )
QT is 46 with 2 x peng 350 + UGF, did start treating with malachite green
I am not sure who can take the salt and I can wait for more spots.
Thanks a bunch.
The key is dissolution. Since you have pleco and cories, then you need to stick to a teaspoon per gallon of salt. Dissolve the salt BEFORE you add into the tank. That was the only thing that saved all my catfishes and loaches from ich. I nearly killed a number of loaches and cories when I failed to dissolve the salt.
If needed I will dissolve the salt before adding.
Is aquarium salt or table salt better? I have both.
Another tank same fish plus swordtails, same dose?
Table salt is fine as long as it does NOT contain yellow prussiate of soda. If you have table salt right now, post the ingredients first so we can confirm how safe it is. Rock salt and pickling salt are also fine.
Were the swordtails in contact with infected ones, or has their tank shared the same equipments as the tank infested right now? If so, treat them with salt as well. If you have only swordtails in there, you may add another teaspoon per gallon set in the next 12 hours and the third and last set in the next 24 hours. They're more tolerant to salt so 3 teaspoons per gallon is not an issue for them.
Morton iodized salt
salt, calcium silicate (an anticaking agent ), dextrose, potassium iodine
API aquarium salt
I have both.
The gourami has a new spot on his/her tail.
The other tank, I meant same fish "angels,gouramis, corys, goby, pleco" plus swordtails
I would think 1 teaspoon per gallon because of corys and pleco applies.
Yep. Both salts are safe.
