Ich-X and Melafix?
We have two fish in the hospital - one neon, and one glo-light (*such* a beautiful fish!). Our glo-light is new, and I noticed he has a few indications of problem - a ding in his tail (could be an agressive other fish since glo-lights are so docile), and a few white patch/spots. It doesn't look like full blown ich, but I am wary it might become ich. It might also be tail rot - it kind of looks like it too. Anyway, the neon that I'm treating has fin rot so he's being treated with melafix. Here are my questions:
1) Should I hold off, monitor, and treat for ich only if it becomes very obvious?
2) Can I mix melafix and Ich-X if it becomes necessary?
The temp in the hospital is 80, and I have added some salt for recovery. I realize I might lose the neon if the glo-light ends up with ich - but I would rather save the fish in my show tank which right now is holding about fifteen fish.
Any advice would be much appreciated - I hope you all have a great Saturday .................
