Sick Bristlenose Hack


Recommended Posts

Discovered this easy way to check progress on plecos w/ich and make sure they boost their immune system w/food. 

I've kept an island of floating driftwood in the pleco tank. During the ich outbreak I noticed  the plecos with ich hanging out on it, all the time, presumably for current and O2.  Only those with ich were on the island  It's definitely making it easier to check their progress, instead of wondering/searching.  Yesterday a piece of zucchini had floated up and I spied one of them munching on it so I decided to offer them something today. 

I figured I'd share this as an idea of how to determine who is sick, check progress, and perhaps spoil them a smidgen 😀 

Not sure this will work for everyone but, it's worth a shot 😉
