Notes from a Newbie

     Recently I saw a thread in regards to Ick in a planted tank, and shortly 
thereafter, I too developed an Ick problem in my 10 gal planted tank. It was 
about this time that I also noticed that my temp had dropped too low. I 
turned the heat back up, and did try a 'preventative dose' of a product I had 
here "Aquari-Sol" with no visible results. After two days, during which the 
Ick seemed to be spreading, I thought I should try something else. A few 
people made mention of a garlic elixir, but I didn't have time to go looking 
for it, so I thought I would try a little experiment. I cut up a clove of 
garlic and stuck that in the tank. It's now been two days more, and the Ick 
seems to have receded. I don't know if this is in direct relation to the 
addition of the garlic, or simply coincidence, possibly the raising of the 
temp alone would have acheived the same result? I just thought I would share 
this and see what anyone else has to say about it. 
     Thanks for all the good advice and discussions on here. Keep up the good 
work. Back to lurking mode now, :)
