RE: Aquatic Plants Digest V5 #23

At the LFS where I work part time, the reef keepers are talking up a garlic
elexir that is supposed to do wonders as a cure for light ich problems, and
as a preventitive. It is completely safe with the corals and other
invertebrates, and does a bang up job of dealing with mild ich problems. I
imagine it would be fine for plants- a garlic and mineral oil spray has been
used for centuries in gardens. It is supposed to work with fresh water as
well, but with apparently a bit of an odor problem. Might be worth looking
into, though.

Subject: Ich in plant tanks

Unfortunately, a recent fish/plant shipment came with an undesired side
effect. I now have visible ich in the tank.

I was just curious if anyone has found any ich treatments that are not based
on copper or malachite green (or any other staining agent)? I had a bout
with ich about 8 years ago. I tried a copper based treatment. It wiped out
most of my plants. I will not risk my plants for the fish again...
