    I think the general consensus is to keep the heat up 10 days AFTER you see no more spots....I sure hope you can get this thing licked...and so sorry about the BRB, rest in peace 'lil fish

    Kev, if I don't talk to you again, have a fun and safe Memorial Day weekend....and I know you won't forget the real meaning of the holiday, to remember and reflect on the great sacrifices our men and women in the military have given to preserve our liberty and freedom

    I actually waited 14 days after the last spot disappeared (I checked the fish with a magnifying glass). Ich did not come back. I lost 1 gold pristella tetra, all the other fish were fine.

    You got ich, too? Son of a mother's uncle. Sorry to hear it, Dan. Hopefully we can both kick this thing in the nuts.

    Just got back yesterday. Had a very fun, but trying weekend. lol Kids were constantly going at it. Noah was pulling Kaitlin's hair all throughout Busch Gardens. At the hotel, Kaitlin would steal his toys, making him cry, and he would retaliate by hitting her, making her cry. It was a fun-filled vacation. Not going to lie... watching it all play out was pretty funny at times.

    After getting back, I checked on the fish and everyone seems to be doing well, save for one little Rummy. Apparently someone has made a meal of his tail and he was trapped in the CO2 bubble ladder... It appears these CO2 devices are a constant pita. Pumps kill snails, ladders trap fish. Hopefully this bar diffuser does the trick (just installed it last night).

    I'm not sure if the tail went missing before or after he got trapped in the ladder, but I freed him and it appears that while he's missing a tail, he's doing ok... with exception to the fact that some fish are now targeting him. I'm hoping he can heal up quickly (while also fending off ich... ugh).

    As for the ich, it appears every one is clear, save for a few Rummys. SO, I've still got a few more days of high temps to go, then I can count down 10-14 days. I think I'll shoot for 14 days to play it safe.

    I'm also finding that sponge-free, while possibly good for nitrates, filter feeders and scavengers, is becoming annoying. The 20gal tanks are ok, but the 75 and 40 (which have much stronger filtration) have not cleared from floating debris. I'm getting pretty tired of that "look," because I miss my pristine water column.

    Before I return to sponges, though, I'm going to try something else. Yep, I purchased freshwater clams, who are filter feeders (like Bamboo shrimp), but aren't as easily killed by Angels or other more aggressive fish. I'm curious what'll happen to tank clarity with them in the tank. I purchased 20 of them and plan on adding 11 to the 75, 7 to the 40, 2 to both 20s. They only get about 2" in length and pretty much remain in the substrate.

    I've always wanted to try them in a tank, so... I'm going to. lol

    Welcome back, Kev...sounds like you guys had an interesting trip, LOL

    Sorry to hear about the poor rummy...mine that had the missing tail when I got him healed up nicely, I can't even pick him out from the others now

    Glad to hear that the ich is on the downcline...Dan is having a very tough time, check his thread...feel so bad for the guy

    I cleaned both of my filters this weekend, and I left out the floss on the Eheim...so far, so good...I may not use it anymore...but I do still have the mechanical sponge in there

    Clams, eh?....this will be cool to see develop....where did you get them?

    Also, I posted a few pics of the little female apisto on my thread, when you have a chance to catch up

    That's cool about the clams. I've heard mixed opinions on them. Most of it boils down to them not having enough food then dying and causing a huge ammonia spike. But that could be coupled with a good filter clearing things out before the clams have time to get what they need. I'd really love to see how this works for you!!

    Kev - with the clams - just make sure you are diligent even more on your testing. They have a tendency not to tell you when they die and can foul the water really bad.
