Re: Silversides and fungus

Suggest using pickling salt (no additives)  in a quarantine tank.  Once 
the fish are acclimated to aquarium life, they can be transferred to 
other tanks. Fungus is due to handling damage and stress.  The salt will 
suppress the fungus and other disease while the fish get used to a 
captive situation.
