New plants added to tank - how quickly can Ich show up on the fish?


Recommended Posts

15 gal, 0 ammonia. 0 nItrites, 20 nitrates.  Gravel substrate w/ fake plants.  1 betta, 5 neon tetra, 1 bala shark (his friends died).  Tank has been established since December 1st  and nothing new added...UNTIL today around 3pm.  I added some red root floaters to the tank.  Tonight around 10pm I noticed signs of Ich on my Bala shark.  

I feel confident in my research and plan on how to treat the Ich  However I was wondering, can the addition of live plants today at 3pm cause signs of Ich in my fish that quickly at 10pm?

Thank you for your thoughts...:)
