Ick in a planted tank?
I have recently added a few rainbowfish to my aquarium. I did not have a
separate quarantine tank to put them in so I went ahead and added them to my
planted tank. At the time, they did not have any noticeable signs of
disease. Since I have introduced them, my swordtail platties and one
rainbowfish have ick. I don't want to uproot all my plants and have to
cycle the tank from scratch after medicating the entire tank. Is there a
product that will get rid of ick without disturbing the biological media in
the tank? Would a UV Sterilizer work better than medication in the long
I am looking into getting a 5-10 gallon aquarium to use for a quarantine
tank in the future. My 6 year-old could use it in the meantime to house
Your help is greatly appreciated.
