anewbie Posted June 3, 2022 Share Posted June 3, 2022 My clown loaches have picked up an illness and are not doing well. The tank is nearly 4 years old. The only thing added in the past 6 months was a group of cherry barbs (on May 7 so nearly a month ago). They are laying on their side. Last night i added one does at around 70% (7 capful) of kordon ick treatment. I've also raised the temp to 88. My plans are later today to add another 7 capful of kordon. THen tommorrow to do a 30% water change and perhaps tomorrow after noon add another 7 capful. I'm leary of kordon since the loaches are scaleless and this isn't healty for them but i'm also concern since they are not doing well. The only other fish I've seen with ick is one serpae tetra (I have 2); i've not seen ick on any of the other fishes (zebra loaches, cardinals, angels, various pleco).I'm not even 100% sure it is ick but i think it is - the dots look a bit finer than i remember ick should be almost like powder sugar. I'm not sure if i should wait and see if the heat is enough to kill it or if i should be adding more kordon rid ick plus. I'm not 100% sure the cherry barbs triggered it - the other thing i had done was added a spray bar to the fx6 about 3 weeks ago. I removed it saturday since the current was causing issues with some of the fishes. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
