In Response To: prevent ich?? (Veruca)

Veruca: First of all, i never imagine the loaches were so expensive in there, i also have 3 clowns and paid less than 3 Us Dlls each (and it was expensive¡¡), In general here in Mèxico all fish are very cheap, any way besides this fish are great ones with dose prices i understand your concern. I agree with all the advises posted in here and advise you something else, put some aquarium salt in your tank, this help prevent all kind of sikness and condition your water, use around 1 full spoon for every 7 gallons, but first disolve the salt in water and then slowly drope it in, if not the fish will think it's food eat it and burn their mouth, this will cuse they loose the sensitivity in this area causing dead by starvation... something else, keep the temperature cons
