RE>White spot disease

Charlie Chee asked about treatment for ich in a planted tank. I've used "Rid-
Ich" which is a malachite green/formalin mixture in my planted tanks. The 
formulation is given as 0.038% malachite green, 4. 26% formaldelhyde (11.52% 
formalin). You have to dose this every day for about 10 days to rid the tank 
of the immature forms, and you can't have charcoal filtration (most plant 
growers don't use it anyway). The only problem I had was that some of the 
silicon tubing I use to lengthen my filter's intake turned green permanently. 
Worse things could happen!

Good luck!
