no ick

dont know if you guys already knew about this one...Its called no ich, its invertabrate safe. Ive dumped it into my tank that contains LR, LS starfish,crabs, shrimp,corals and many other things and the ich is going away with NO damage to any of the inverts. Ill post any reponses just in case it was the ich going through a cycle.

PS it is a bit expensive, but what in saltwater isnt?

Is it about 15 dollars? Is the bottle set up where you can measure out the ounces without pouring? Does it take about 2 weeks? If so, I've used this. It's good at catching Ich early, but if it's used later it isn't as effective.

No ick aka Ecolibrium is a stabalized rare earth product. Although it may be helping you in this instance, this product is not new to the market and equally hit and miss as the rest of the commercially touted "reef safe" treatments. I do definately hope the product works for you but I would not suggest hailing it's praises on just the one use.

Cheers
Steve

They are almost identical AFAIK.

UV's do not eliminate the parasite, merely slow down the spread of the theront. At best your looking at an equilibrium of fish and parasite. You will more commonly never be rid of it unless a proper methodology is implemented.

I've used the kick ich product with success. I just had to use it for twice as long as they suggest. Back to back treatments.
