So let me first start off by admitting that I'm new and also an idiot... Tank hasn't finished cycling but is pretty close... I got impatient and added some clown loaches to a tank thats in the process of a fish in cycle.(1 eclipse cat, 6 Cory's, 4 platy(and now 3 clown loaches)) I'm aware that the clowns will eventually outgrow this tank and yes I plan on buying a 125-150G... Anyway on to my problem.
I added the clowns last week and went on vacation, I had someone looking after my fish but they didn't mention anything odd the whole week. I got home this morning around 2AM and went to check on my fish, all three of the clowns have white spots that were not there when I left. Now I'm pretty sure this is Ich but I would like to know how to get rid of it??
The clowns are scaleless and I understand they have much different tolerances to meds then the other fish I have. I'm due for a pwc
tomorrow and I try to do 2-3 a week but since I was gone it didn't happen... So after the pwc
what is the best way to get rid of this??
I'm swinging by petsmart first thing in the morning to replace my heater since no matter how far you turn the dial it won't reach any higher than 76-78 so I'm just gonna throw it out.
Any meds I should look for?
I know that some people are going to want to jump on me for making the mistake of buying a fish so sensitive before my cycle finished but I'm going to ask that we wait to stone me! I want to save my fish and my tank first.
