Re: [APD] Please help white spot
I concur - raising the temp did the trick when my clown loaches and cardinal
tetras had ich. I had a bad heater and didn't realize it because I had one
of those cheap stick-on thermometers. The tank temp was too cold and
fluctuated too much.
Now I have a new heater and better thermometer and no ich!
