I do not advocate anyone going against main stream thinking, especially if that is where they are comfortable. I will however, stand by my position in that my temp stays in the neighborhood of 83 degrees, my salinity is 1.025, I add garlic oil and vitamins to the fish food, I NEVER quarantine...I never get ich. Let me repeat, I am not saying for everyone to quit quarantining fish or anything like that. That is indeed, a nice safe practice, not for just ich, but for many diseases new fish can bring.

I can say from my experience, that the above method, works for me.

Nothing wrong with going away from mainstream, provided you have plenty of research to back up your reasons for potentially risking the health of your fish, inverts, etc.

Also, I've kept FW multiple tanks, for over two years, and NEVER had ich. Never had it in 16 months of keeping a SW tank either.

Former advisor and planted tank geek...life's moved on though.

Yeah i agree with Hara here. I keep my temp about 81-82 and have had no problems since my first ich break out when I first set up my tank. I also qt all my new fish and give them a fw dip befor going into the main tank. But there are ALOT of people on here that say fw dips do nothing but stress the fish out. I disagree with this.
