Just a word of caution: some of the ick medications can also kill your beneficial bacteria. Good luck with your black moors -- I had some years ago and they got quite large and I just loved them :)

You know what the definition of hobby is: something of interest that is going to cost you lots of money!

Hi Well I dosed them 3 times with the ICK meds, I used Ick Gaurd by Jungle. It turns the water blue for a while but I have noticed all the Ick seems to be gone...I guess it wasnt the granuals from the Easy balance after all. One thing I have noticed is their color isnt the same. They seem pale. I just added the carbon back in and in the AM I will do a 25% water change and test my Levels! I hope I havnt lost all my good bacteria!! Thanks for all the advice!

All the best Terry

OK so I have been treating with Ick Gaurd by Jungle, but you have to change 25% the water every 24 hrs and add another dose...yesterday after only 3 doses (3 days) it looked like the Ick was gone so last night I added the carbon back in and this AM I could tell that they wernt quite over it yet so I took the carbon out and dosed them again (4rth dose). My delema is I have to go away this afternoon till Sunday...2 nights. I was thinking should I go and see if I can get coppersafe or another medication that you add and dont have to change for a couple of days...I dont want to stress them out with all the meds...I also heard that I should also be using an antibiotic. Any info would be greatly appreciated. They seem a bit pale in color, but are swiming around and not sitting on the bottom anymore. I increased the power head and they like swimming against the current, they are also back to begging for food! so Im thinking they are getting better. I havnt tested my levels while the medication is in the tank as I have been told that you get false readings. I hope I didnt mess with my benificial bacteria! What a state! Thank you so much for you time everyone!

All the best Terry
