Ghost Shrimp for Ick cure

I just got done reading FMA and I found something great. The article said that the Ghost shrimp will control Ick and other parasites to a certain degree. It's the natural way as they put it. So I went to my LFS and got 8 ghost shrimp for $2.00. The small ones I put in with the tetras and the large ones I put in with the gouramis. They are cleaning the bottom where the catfish can't get too and if they can control parasites, thats a plus!!! Just thought I'd let ya know, I thought it was pretty neat.

Excellent, I just wish I'd known this when my two ClownLoaches got hit with ich a few weeks back. Maybe then, I'd still have two rather than one.

Hi wolverine121,

That is a great tip.

OK, this may be a weird question...
Is FMA another aquaria magazine or was it a typo (instead of AFM)

I just picked up an issue of Aquarium Fish Magazine last night (because it has an article about freshwater puffers that I am interested in) and I was wondering if this had the story about ghost shrimp.

Anyone ?

GREAT!

that's such a great tip but in my 10 gallon tank I don't think I could stuff anymore in there (6 neon tetras, 4 harlequin rasboras, 3 panda corydoras, 2 gouramis (sunset), 4 threadfin rainbowfish and one aquatic frog!)

Hello targaboy78, It wasn't a typo. The magazine is Freshwater and Marine Aquarium I get it at my local Tops supermarket. WWW.FAMAMAGAZINE.COM. Well in a sense I guess it was a typo it should have been FAMA. 8O

I need to try this ghost shrimp business. They would probably clean up a lot more than the pleco does. Do they eat planaria?

Hi fishfreek,

Thanks for the link. You know, I never even thought of subscribing.

I'll definately check it out. Amazon also has a Canadian site, AMAZON.CA. I'll see if I can order it through them.

Thanks again.

Sorry about the double-post this afternoon. Some sort of weird refresh / back button combination that obviously didn't do what I wanted it to do. You would never guess that I am a computer guy by trade.

Hi fishfreek,
I just figured out what you were getting at about Amazon.com. But it took reading this thread to help me clue in.

Of course if you do buy the book from amazon I ask that you use the link in the suggested readings list as that will give the website a small (very small) % of the sale.
I will most definately try getting it through aquariumadvice.com's link.
(Provided that they will deliver to us Canadians).

Hey fishfreek, the link you posted was not to the mag. The mag. is called Freshwater and Marine Aquarium not Aquarium Fish Magizine . The link is http://www.famamagazine.com./ The mag. you talked about is good too.
