Since one of my corydoras died, i have seen if not all my fish to experience some kind of ick. I couldn't see any white-spots yet, but have observed twitching and scratching behavior often in the tank so I'm assuming that its the beginning of an ick outbreak. I've already treated the fish with high-temp (30Degree C)and salt (lower dose 1tsp/5gallon). Though, i can guarantee that the disease infestation is due to my newly plants purchase from my LFS. I only washed the plants in tap water for about 5 min and added in straight to the tank.
The questions are:
- What quarantining chemicals are appropriate? Any certain brand that are readily available in LFS??
- Is it necessary to quarantine plants in a quarantine tank for about 1-2 weeks?
