My loach tank has become infested with ich. I have been able to treat before with maracide. I bought some maracide to combat the ich, it is very different from the bottles of maracide I bought before, this stuff turns the water blue for only a brief time & then it looks clear again. The maracide I`m used to using would leave my water green until I actually changed the water. The new bottles only treat half the amount of water too.!?!? Can anyone please tell me if this stuff works?? I have been treating for four days now & my smallest clown is not looking well, I haven`t seen any of my angelicus or rostratas for two days now. I used the maracide before & seen almost immediate results. I haven`t added any new fish for a long time, why would they all of a sudden have ich?? Should I take out my structure & clean everything?? Please help.
