  1. Pests, Hitchhikers, and Diseases
    Greetings fellow aqualovers, It is with great displeasure that I bring you yet another ich thread. I'm so sick of dealing with this parasite I'm about to get out of the hobby for good. :confused: I've dealt with it on and off over nearly a decade and for some reason this time I've just had...

    I've read a lot different ways to feed but I want to see what people in the hobby really do. Some say just brine shrimp or a nori sheet, some use pellets or flakes, some mix with garlic and vitamins. What works for you and makes your fish happy and healthy, what are the health benefits of garlic...

    Hi all, 3 of my fish started to have white spots on their bodies (ich). I started reading on the issue and I've done the following things. IM ON DAY 3 A day after I noticed I did a fresh water dip on all 3 of my fish affected I purchased garlic to start using it with their food (3 days after...

    Hi everyone, Today I bought Seachem Garlic Guard because I heard it naturally boost the fish immune system. So I put 6 New Life Spectrum Pellets and soaked them in the garlic guard then put the soaked pellets and a tiny bit of the garlic guard that it was soaked with in the tank. My clownfish...

    I'm pretty bummed....I found ick on my coral beauty and I swear the fish is impossible to catch. I have a 125 gallon reef tank with 100 lbs of live rock, corals, inverts, and a dozen assorted fish. With all the hiding places in the tank it's really hard to catch a fish. I was curious if...

    Just wanted to strike a conversation on Ich. It seems that all of the folks in the hobby deal with this at one point in time or another. Maybe we can start a dedicated thread here in PHD for a guide to the problem. Ich is not the best in the world, but can be delt with rather easily if one...
  7. The THINK Tank
    Hello all of you thinkers out there, I have a topic for everyone to ponder. I am a new addition to SW and these forums, although I have a lot of FW experience. Of course, to welcome me into SW, my first fish (OC) came from the LFS with ich. I haven't dealt with it in a while, and I know it's...

    So after extensive research i have decided to suppliment with my fishy food with garlic, plus to try to avoid ich, which im terrified of! Does any one have any recipes for a homemade paste of sorts. I was just going to use a food processer to process a couple heads of store bought garlic. If I...

    On Friday I saw 3 white fungal spots on one of my mandarins. Since they won't always eat prepared foods, soaking food in garlic is not possible. Catching him in 350 lbs of LR was also out of the question. So I squirted some garlic into the tank, and soak food for the rest of the fish in...

    Just wondering what garlic is and how do I feed it to the fish in order to fight ich.

    I just noticed that I've gotten an Ich infestation in my 14G biocube.. I noticed little white spots on the Royal Gramma yesterday, after I had been noticing that he was rubbing against the rocks more than usual. The only other fish I have in there is an Ocellaris Clown and it looks to me like he...

    Picked up a Singapore Anglefish that is just a bit over an 1" in length. He is currently in a 24g and will be moved to a 65 once he gets a bit bigger. I know they are difficult to care for and some do not acclimate well. It seems to be comfortable in the tank. It is sharing room with a pair of...
