Have any of you guys dealt with ich in your planted tank? I bought some neons at petsmart and they carried it over to my tank and a lot f my fish have it. So upsetting! I slowly turned my tank to 86 and I guess ride it out? You guys suggest anything?

Bummer!! I haven't had it since I planted, but when I did I treated with heat too, worked great. I went to 88 though, did some vacuuming and a couple of pwc's and it was gone in a week. Never saw it again and didn't lose a fish. I don't know how tolerant plants are to that temp.

My fish has ich too...I just buy an ich medication online...wait until it ships...I will tell you if it works...but you should seperate the ich ones from the healthies...raise the temperature of the tank over 30 of Celcius...and clean the filter if needed...hopefully it helps!!!

All of the fish have been exposed, so no need to separate. Just treat the tank. I like to use the heat method mainly to protect my BB and less tolerable inhabitants from potentially harmful meds. It takes a little longer, but it works and no harm done

Anyone around Charlotte wanting to buy corals? I'm breaking down a tank. I got lots of neon green Fiji star polyps, zoas, Xenia, etc let me know.

Hey guys, thought I'd stop in here since it seems to be a little more active than usual haha.
I live in the Charlotte area and work at fintastic, so if any of you stop by I'd be happy to help you out. :>

I'm headed that way this weekend. I'll probably stop in to check out some plants.

We have a good stock of plants right now. If there's anything specific you're looking for I can let you know if we have it.

How about dwarf 4 leaf clover? Someone on the forum suggested it. I have the Finnex FugeRay LED fixture on my 40b. I've had success with micro sword and dwarf hair grass, so I'm looking for more. I'm really wanting to find a low light carpet of some kind. Any suggestions? No C02 atm, but I do use ferts.

dwarf sagittaria is one of my favorites for low tech tanks. It's forming a nice carpet in my 55 gallon. We also have some sweet micro sword mats if you'd like some more of those. We don't have any four leaf clover atm, but we do have glossos, dwarf baby tears, and giant baby tears that all look pretty similar
