Good read! Pretty sure I've read this before, but as you know I need to brush up.130g: 7 Angelfish, 1 Bolivian, 17 Neon Tetras, 14 Serpae Tetras, 9 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, ? Ghost Shrimp
I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.

I like it because it says what medication is in the different ones and possible side effects of each, warnings to certain fish, etc.
I also was not aware that Malachite Green is light sensitive so found this interesting.

I have never believed ick is "always" in your tank. Frankly that claim never made any sense. If it was always in your tank, your fish would always have ick since it can not survive without a food source.
I was glad that article thinks like I do.

Fantastic Read and should be a sticky! Ich/Ick seems to be one of the more common things people post about and would be great for them to read up on!

That is a good article, Hobbsy.
I found this one a fair while ago, and I post it up on peoples threads if they have an outbreak of ich. All the info comes from Fisheries and Aquatic Sciences Dept, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, University of Florida. Department of Zoology, University of Queensland, Australia.
Very handy articles to have on hand!Three-fourths of the Earth's surface is water, and one-fourth is land. It is quite clear that the good Lord intended us to spend triple the amount of time fishing as taking care of the lawn. ~Chuck Clark
