my tiger barb was hovering near the surface, with its mouth at the surface level gasping for air, and he was not eating properly, i removed him from the tank into a quarantine tank and added 50% new water in the tank and left him there for a bit where he was eating a bit
while tending to him i noticed on my gourami's.....there is two white spots, on one of them, i am suspecting ich? should i start treatment right away? or should i wait for a bit more to appear before i start adding salt
i am concerned about the tolerance levels for high temperature of for the tiger barb and the red honey gourami and the salt....specially when my barb is acting a bit strange? would it be okay to add salt in now and raise the temperature, or would that cause too much damage to the fish? >.<
i don't want to lose any fish ._.
can i use normal table salt?
my checked my water just now and its as follows
Nitrate: less than 5
4 red honey gourami.
1 tiger barb.
35 gallon tank
thanks in advance for taking time to read and help out >.< being new to the hobby i have many questions and concern for the health of my few fish.
