Hi, I have been lurking aroung Loaches on Line ever since I got my 3 cuties, Blinkie, Snork and Spaz (Clown Loaches). I have read the FAQ, but still have a situation. For 3 months they were fine, then 4 days ago, Ick.Really Bad. and so far there has been no improvement. This is my usual set up: 20 gallon tank. 1/4 changes once a week. 1 Tablespoon of rock salt per 5 gallons of water. PH between 6.8 and 7. 75 degrees. 4 rummy nose tetras. 1 cory cat. 1 zipper loach. 3 (aforementioned)clown loaches. No chlorine in our water, so no problem there, but I don't know about floride. Lots of airation. (I like bubbles).
This is what I have done:
Day 1: 1/4 water change, remove charcoal, start up-ing the salt to 1T + 1t p
