Ich from hell, but I have another question
Well, I have a large barb and a large catfish that just can't shake the ich. I believe at this point it is stress due to the tank being too small. I've battled it back several times now, and the other fish have no symptoms... If you have any suggestions aside from upgrading tanks (I will when I can), I'll take them. I've mostly used quick cure recently.
The actual question is this- do snails carry ich? I have an assassin snail breeding colony that has dropped to 10% of it's original size with the addition of a crayfish (who is eating all their food). Since they have gone cannibal, and I haven't figured out the feeding situation yet, it seems the best way to solve this is add feeder snails. I have a ton of them in the tank with the ichy fish! Is it safe to pull these out? There are no fish in the assassin tank, just a crawdad and a bunch of plants.
