In Response To: Re: new loaches with ich (Cybermeez)

Hi Robin. Thank you for your help. The temp was 80, so I cranked it up to 82 tonight. I will continue to raise the temp 2 degrees per day til I hit 86 or so. I think I have the airstone bit covered, since I have a bubble wand running along the back wall of the tank - is that what you mean?
The only things living in there with the two little loaches are whatever snails they haven't found yet, and one bedraggled plant (courtesy of the snails). Plus, there is one ancient danio but he seems incredibly hardy, so I am far more worried about the loaches.
I have to admit, I am really worried about medicating the tank, but I want to have the stuff on-hand anyway, so I will have to go in search of salt and medicine tomorrow. I cannot find a good LFS *anywhere* in Toronto, so these fish came from the Petsmart on the other side of town, but luckily at least there's a pet supply shop in my neighborhood.

Thanks again!
