My wife has a little tank with a regular perc. and a black one . I was being and idiot when I first got the black percula and didn't QT
it. Well, it had ick and the little orange one got it to. I bought another tank and set it up as a QT
tank (her tank has a few inverts in it). They have been there for about a week now and all of the ick is gone. They will stay in the qt
for a minimum of 6 weeks. So, 1st problem (sort of) solved and a big lesson was learned.
Now for the next problem...... The black perc. has started to "defecate" in long strings that stay attached. I have read that this is caused by an internal parasite. If this is the case, what can be done to treat this problem?
The product I am using to treat the ick is not copper based. I can't find it online and I'm not at home to look on the bottle for what it is exactly, but I think it is quick cure (maybe not)...... The temp in the QT
tank is also at a steady 85deg. Everything seems to be going well except for the "string feces"
Anyone have an idea of how to get rid of whatever the black one has?
