Noticed one white spot on one of my Glow lights today, the other 6 look fine, and the other inhabitants of the tank also seem ok, although I have seen some flashing behaviour around the tank. But there is no noticeable spots on anyone else.
I do 30% WC weekly, and condition with Prime.
I have a mixed bag of fish to be honest,
Glow light tetra
platys Honey Gourami Angelicus Loach
and one lone male Bolivian Ram
I know, hard and soft water fish together... I have medium hard water, that contains levels of nitrates right out of the tap so I am sure there is constant water quality issues but most of the time everyone seems fine.
Anyhoo, what I want to know is what do I do about this glow light? I do not have a quarantine tank so cannot isolate the fish with the spot, and my tank is heavily planted so would rather not use meds. I have read increasing the temp in the tank is a way of curing ICH.
My tank is currently running at 25c of 77f, Do I need to increase up 86 as I have read in some posts?
Will the corys and loaches be ok?
from reading the profiles for the fish I have, the fish I would worry most about is the Danios who have a max temp range as 25/77 which is what I am running the tank at the moment. Would increasing the temp to 30/86 not have serious implications for these fish?
Any advice would be much appreciated.
I had a major move around and re-scape yesterday, this probably stressed the fish no end and has led to the Ich showing up today?
