In Response To: New Clown Loaches! (Ben4229)

Hey Ben!!

Congratulations on your new clowns. You're gonna love them! How big are they?

Tell us what size your tank is and what type of filter you have too. I've had my clowns now for almost three months, and they did NOT get ich. I prepared myself mentally for the worst, but it didn't happen. Either I was just plain lucky or maybe I did something right. I changed the water twice a week, and I raised the temp. to 82 degrees. In case ich was lurking, I kept the heat up to keep the ich at bay. I also, at first, added salt to the tank. But not soon after I was talked out of it, and have since ceased adding salt.

That's it. I also feed a varied diet and I try to feed at least twice (mostly thrice) each day. I'm using this same regimen for the new yoyo loaches I've gotten too. I hope this works a second time. :-)

Welcome to the board, by the way.
