Apple Snails + heat + salt?
90 FW has ich and am using Heat (86F) and salt (1 Tblspoon/5 gal) as treatment.
I've been searching for answers on how this will affect my apple snails.
Do I need to worry about them in the heat and with the added salt? I suspect I'm looking at at least 7 more days of both. I've had the heat cranked up for 4 days but am adding the salt today and tomorrow and got to worrying about the snails.
If I should move them out of the 90, it's my understanding that while snails don't get ICH that they can carry the parasite so most likely I'd have to set up a hospital tank for them instead of placing them in my 30 gal. Any suggestions for an environment that will not stress them over much?
