DING DONG THE ICH IS DEAD!

Sorry I haven't keept in touch about my ich. I went out and finally bought the ich cure. It is such a strong medicine, that it tells you to treat for 4 days and then do a 25% water change.

I upped my temp to about 83-84 and started dosing. The ich was gone the next day, but I continued treating the way as instructed. I had to continue airation but remove the carbon filter. Oh, I also moved Hope and Spanky back in my 20 gal a few days before I started treating.

Everyone is so happy now. After the water change (I did about 30%) My tank was still a greenish color, but the insturctions said that the medicine would still be in my tank a few days after, which would give additional prevention. I just put my filter back in yesterday, so my water is starting to clear up!

This is the second time I had to result in Ich Cure. This med has never let me down. I treated my tank for a few weeks with maracide, which didn't really help.

It just resulted in me treating Ich cure (and it kicked its @$$)!

From now on, I am an Ich Cure person!

Hopefully my tank will be clear again when I get home from college and work today.
