Re: Update On "Burned" Glass Catfish.

Sometime ago, I treated my 80 gal for ich by increasing the temp to 90F for about one week (usually I do this for about 10 days). The Glass Catfish suffered some pretty significant damage from this heat treatment. They looked like shrimp that had "gone bad," with a cloudy insides. I thought for sure that I had lost them, that they would no longer eat and die in a matter of days.

I transferred them to my 30 gal tank. They began eating the next day. It took a while, but now they are back to normal. The cloudy look has completely disappeared. I'm surprised and quite happy about this.
