Re: ICK, Plants

I could never keep Rams for long until I set up my first proper planted 
tank. Since then I have had no trouble with this species at all and have had 
a self -sustaining population ever since. Even newly bought specimens that 
have developed Itch a day or so after purchase have recvered on their own 
without any treatment whatsoever. I know this won't be much comfort to the 
original questioner who was having problems treating his Rams in a planted 
tank but it was one of the things that convinced me that planted aquaria 
were the way to go.
