Re: Aquatic Plants Digest V4 #684

a few months ago i used salt to eradicate ich in my tank . . . 1/2 tbsp per 
gallon, with cories inside . . . no ill effect observed on the fish nor 
plants, and the bubbling continued unabated . . . using malachite 
green/formalin treatments tend to wipe out your shrimp . . .

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue,
Or walk with kings - nor lose the common touch;
If neither foes nor loving friends can hurt you;
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty seconds' worth of distance run -
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it,
And - which is more - you'll be a Man my son!
