    I was on vacation and the person who was suppose to be watching my tank did a bad job and as such, I ended up losing a fish to ich. But they put in 3 new fish into that tank and those three new fish are not showing any signs of ich at all. I was told by the LFS that I still needed to treat the...

    ICH I can honestly say, that I'm not overly freaked out...at least not yet. I've read on different forums about hypo, additives and garlic. I have come to the conclusion that there really isn't a conclusion. When I first set up my take I took some recommendations and started dosing. After...

    I have been noticing that in the past week a red algae is starting to grow on the glass of my aquarium, the sand, and the rocks. I'm thinking that it's probably not a good algae, but I could be wrong. I can try to post pictures of what it's looking like so far if it will help. If the algae does...
