StephenP2003 Posted November 14, 2020 Share Posted November 14, 2020 A couple weeks ago, I brought 30 platys to my LFS. Today, I messaged my LFS and asked if they wanted some guppies. They said, "Sure, we can take some guppies. What are your water parameters though? Your platys all came down with really nasty ick last time you brought us some." I told them my parameters (75 degrees, 10-12 dGH, 8 ph, 10-20 ppm nitrates, same as the platys), and they said, "Pretty similar to what we keep our guppies at so we'd be able to take some in." So I'm just curious, what could I have done personally that made these fish get ick in their store? I haven't had to deal with an ick outbreak since last year, and this LFS pretty commonly has about a third of their tanks with a "not for sale" sign because the fish are being treated with something, and they've told me more than once that they lost an entire stock in a display tank due to ick -- so it's my gut reaction to sort of scoff at the notion that somehow this is my fault. But, I wanted to ask anyway in case there's something I'm not considering. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
