I'm leaving on Wednesday for a week and I've got ich in my community tank. I am rushing around the house trying to get things in order. I just moved about a dozen Nothobranchius palmqvisti
killies from QT
into my community tank. I don't have a light on my QT
tank and I only just saw in the light of my community tank (after adding them) that thy have ich. Crap crap crap! I'm raising the temp slowly now and I'm going to add some salt. The fish will not be fed the entire time I'm gone and I'm worried about how this will stress them when they're not already sick. I have a very full, active, beautiful community tank. It is my favorite aquarium and I would be just sick if I lost all these guys (approx 50 fish!). Do you all have any suggestions on what else I can do? Should I attempt to pull the killies out of the tank? I don't know if I can even catch them because this tank is heavily planted and decorated and full of so many other fish. Sigh.. What a stupid mistake.
