Re: ich, plants and temp

Raising the temperature to 85 degrees F. both strengthens the fishes' immune
response and weakens the parasite directly.  Several disease books recommend
keeping the temperature elevated for one to two weeks.  Unfortunately, in my
experience, many plants (including Rotala, Bacopa, Cabomba and Elodea and
some Crypts) seemed to suffer with temperatures in this range.
