Well, I'll Tell Ya...It's Always Somethin'!

Earlier, I broke down my pothos plant filter (a preformed pond in back of my 80), trimmed the plant back to about 12', and placed half of the plant in my tank. I left the skimmer box and prefilter on my tank, took my 20 gal Q-tank and made it into a sump for the return. Works great!

I also purchased a total of 17 B. sids...er, no Q-tank...so...I-guess-I'll-just-put-them-in! Ich soon followed, first one spot on a sid, then another on a Rummy-nose. Sigh.

I cranked the heaters up to 90F, added an additional powerhead for circulation and shuffled away in sad disgust...BAH!!! I'm going to keep it that way for 10 days and wait it out.
