Ok, so the lady at my LFS told me that ich wasnt really a "disease" and that it occured when fish got too stressed out... I bought 2 clowns last Teusday 2-20-07 and 2 days ago I noticed they had ich.. Well I did the whole freshwater dip and one of them didnt like that so much.. I did 3 minutes fresh, 3 minutes salt (not in tank), and then another 3 in fresh for both of them.. as soon as I was done with that one of them kinda stayed toward the bottom and rested on the sand etc.. I could tell he wasnt doing good, but didnt know if he was just scared so I let him be. The ich didnt miraculously "fall off" like the lady told me. I went out of town yesterday at 2pm and returned today around 7 and that one was dead, so I removed him.. now the other one still has ich but it more active than the other one was at the time of death.. any idea? I dont want to keep doing FW dips and just stress them out more.. I dont know what is happening, but EVERY fish that I have had to date has come down with ich and died.. I have had 4 firefish, 1 black clown (that didnt even make 24hrs) and a red lip blenny that died of unknown causes ( i think he was just not eating) the ONLY one that I didnt have trouble with was my first fish, a bicolor pseudo that we had for 3 weeks and had to get rid of because he was beating up the firefish and being too aggressive. Is my tank "infected" with ich or is that even possible?? I have a skimmer coming in within 3 days so I'm going to see if that helps, but everytime I have my water tested it comes back 100% and I have it tested at 2 LFS!! These things are hard to take pics of !
