Are you seeing new ich spots? Some strains of ich are really tough to eradicate no matter what medication you use. Well to be fair, I cant see ich spots on my Cichlid, because it is white but I have witnessed it flash. I will have a closer look at the Clowns tomorrow before I start another round of...

Be careful that you don't accidentally destroy your biofilter/film in the process. You don't want to be flung into a recycling of the tank. I did that once during treatment. Do you have another filter running on another tank so you can use it if you crash your tank? I wouldn't remove the gravel. I ...

Thanks Starsplitter. I really need to fix this before I go out of town at the end of the month. I also know that while I have had the water warm (83-84F), it needs to be 86F to really help kill off the parasite. I know that in order to ensure the water in the gravel is warm enough, I should have the...

OK, so my experience continues with Kordon Ich Attack... I am just about through my second bottle of the stuff, and have been feeling pretty good about things. Until yesterday. I was sitting here at my desk, with laptop doing some paperwork. I tossed a couple bits of broccoli in to my tank, and deci...

Nice video. The sticking point with the Marineland Stealth Pro heater is that it has an automatic shut off, so it should shut off if the water gets too low. The thread on the planted tank site shows this heater after it blows a hole in the side of the aquarium, which is a bigger deal that what the v...

Thanks, I may give that a try. I know my Pleco and clowns love broccoli so I'm sure they will love zucchini!

Cool Pics!

This may sound strange, but other than cutting the zuchinni, did you do anything to it before putting it in the tank?

Well all of these are very helpful, Thank you for the responses. Not to sound stupid but what is tds, and as far as those Filament Barbs they did find another home but 2 Geophagus took there place. So maybe the plant will have a chance if the Geo's quit uprooting them. They are a fun fish to watch,...

I have heard more negatives than positives about this product. Basically it did not work for the people that posted about it. I hope to the first! :D I am on my second bottle of the stuff. I haven't seen any white spots on my clowns and my cichlid is white, so I can't see any spots on it either. It...

Have you had any stresses in the tank? It seems that much of the research I have read, states that ick exists in most tanks, but that it pops out in times of stress. Ummmm...not anything unusual. I was getting ready to replace the clown I lost in May/June when I spotted (pun intended) more Ich. Eve...

I think I once read at the Kordon website that their organic ich treatments work best as a prophylactic treatments against ich. http://www.novalek.com/kordon/ich_attack/index.htm Hi Chef! Yes, you are right it does work that way, but I think if I read this right, it can also be used to treat Ich af...

I haven't used this product. It may help if someone with more experience knows what type of fish you are treating and if you are treating in a Quarantine tank or in your main tank? Did you read the ick treatment article? It is very good about the life cycle of Ick and how to destroy it. In my plant...

Kordon Ich Attack

So I am currently treating for Ich, and instead of using malachite green I am using Kordon Ich Attack. I learned about this stuff on a Cichlid Forum where I am a member and I wanted to know if anyone here uses this stuff instead of other Ich treatments. I think I like the fact the stuff is organic, ...
