Unfortunately, my move I had to do with my 40 has created a cycle. Which in turn has caused some stress and ich. Right now my baby hippo and male clown have come down with it. Surprisingly, the male clown seems to be much worse off. Now, I am a firm believer in the "good water and food" practice, but because of the cycle, I can't guarantee good water, so have decided on setting up my HT. So what I really need to know from you guys, is what do you think will be more affective: a mela****e green based med or a copper based med? EDIT: OK, that's weird, apparently thats a no-no word?
