Uthanise or no?
My fish all have ich and are livebearers used treatment for 2 weeks no help, salt for one week no help so like for 1 week salt n meds at same time and its only gotten worse, its not overstocked or anything so shuld i jus freeze them or let them slowly die, or is their another way to uthanise them?
well i dont believe in euthanizing fish at all... are you putting in 1 tablespoon of aquarium salt for every 5 gallons? what treatment are you using? maybe try a different treatment and see if it will help at all.. i would raise the temp. to like 85 degrees if you can..they can tolertate that..are you doing water changes? i would do about 25 percent a day..and if you have a carbon filter the carbon is taking the meds out so take the carbon out.. i hope your fish's ich goes away
i personally wouldnt have used the medication.. i just feel like thats not a natural remedy, but i would actually stop the medicine... just raise the temp, keep adding the salt, take the carbon out, and maybe get a small bubbler because the oxygen in the tank will get lower since your raising the temp.. so you need more surface agitation.. you can take a little water our so the filter hits the water harder
i stopped usin meds like 2 days ago n i already jad the carbon out from when i started treatment n doin waterchanges everyday n the heater has is at 84 n i had the heater n waterchanges doon tht since first sign of ich
