    If your platy is bred by you, what new fish have you introduced to the tank or your other tanks?

    When then if you bought new fish, and even if they are in the different tank, ich can get passed through using the same equipment from each tank. I would treat the whole tank as infected with Seachem Paraguard, generally fine with plants.

    I bought my neon tetras and the plant first, then a week later I bought this bristle noes pleco. They are all in the same tank. And is seachem paraguard supposed to kill the ich?

    Indeed make sure to keep treating for up to 2-3weeks to eradicate the ich fully I recommend every other day treatment accompiened with %25 water change and substrate siphoning to remove any free swimming protozoas
