I have a 36" x 18" x 12" aquarium, stocked with 6 male guppies, 16 female guppies, 4 mollies, 1 juvenile rainbow shark, 1 assassin snail and a shed load of pond snails.
one of my mollies (black, regular sort) displayed a few white spots on his head and upper body and as i do not have a second tank i couldn;t simply remove him unless i wanted to flush him, needles to say i didn't flush him and his spots disapeared but today i have noticed they have reurned, he is currently swimming happily in a bucket with a bubbler and i am using prime to keep ammonia, nitrite and nitrates low but i don't have a heater.
I've now figured i'm just going to return him to my tank and treat the entire tank for ich, but my tank has only been fully cycled for little over 3 weeks and i don't want any meds that will ruin the bio filter or my live plants if possible,
Could anyone suggest a full course of action that i could impliment ASAP!
hopefully it would be the least invasive but still effective method of treating Ich,
if you have read all of this post and i know it is a long one thanks and i would appreciate any help you could offer!
i have read that ammonia, nitrite and nitrate levels could be important
Nitrite 0 - 0.25PPM
Nitrate 10 - 20ppm
