i read the thread about 5 posts down and he has different kinds of fish so i dont kno if this changes anything.
issue.1. both of my bala sharks are covered in salt like substance which has lead me to believe that it is ich.just saw this 4 days ago.whats the easiest way to cure this with out meds?i have also noticed that they go nuts up against the wall like they are trying to escape is this normal? this i dont have a pic for sorry.
issue.2. of my ciclids is directly under the filter almost side up like he is having problems swiming.
one of my other african ciclids the purple one is what seems to be like eating the mucas off of the rainbow ciclid.is this normal or because of the ich in the tank.
