Is there enough oxygen in the tank??? Do you have a bubbler?

i have now lost ( dead fish) all the bristlenoses in the tank.... the jack dempseys and rosy barbs are fine.

i have extra bubblers in the tank while its temp is up higher. the bristlenoses that are dead had bloody looking tails im guessing where the parasites have exited their skin. poor buggers ...

i will keep you guys updated with my progress of eliminating this dreaded ich.. absolutely devoed!

I am really sorry for your loss!

It is hard to know if it was the ich or the meds that killed them - ich meds and bristlenoses are not good..

Fingers crossed you can pull the other ones through!

I hate tank meds, I have never got them to work for me.

Good luck

Sharyn

Just a quick update- I'm still treating the whitespot and have used some salt now swell as higher temp. I lost a jack Dempsey but the other 5 are doing fine as well as the roseys. I also thoroughly cleaned the substrate with the vac
