A while ago, my mother and I both bought clown loaches from the same store-- same tank. Ours both broke out with ich last week. ( On the exact same day! ) Unfortunately, hers got real bad real fast, and they both passed away. My tank is much warmer, which is why I believe the ich didn't spread like wildfire. I am treating the tank with Rid Ich +, which claims to be safe for loaches and other scaleless fish. I'm not seeing improvement yet. I am only doing half-doses at the normal intervals (24 hours). Should I do more frequent doses? Also, in accordance with the instructions, I'm doing 25% water changes before each treatment. Isn't that going to destroy my biological filter? I'm very worried about my loaches. Can anyone offer advice? I know this subject is talked about alot, but I've never had such a stubborn case. Tha
