Cool. Thanks for all the help everyone.
i was told by my lfs to put a skunk cleaner shimp in my tank they help clean ick off of fish i dont know if this is true im still learning my self i also read alot on here about ick and everybody seems to have good luck with that stuff called kick ick i see it at my lfs but there again im still new to this so somebody with more exsp. might want to step in
Put a cleaner shrimp in your tank. Mine will jump on my hand while working on tank and start cleaning it. Fish will readily accept a good cleaning.
But will a cleaner shrimp do anything about ich or is it just for overall health of the fish?
They clean all sorts of external parasites.
Yes, very effective with ich. I had a Tang that came with a suitcase full of ich! I put him in with the cleaner shrimp and fed with garlic and he was better in no time! These guys really helped me through it!
check out my cleaner hard at work.
I tried to get a pic of the cleaner going to work on the inside of my goby's mouth but couldnt. The goby sat there with mouth wide open waiting for service, pretty cool to watch
That's a beautiful goby you have there and a diligent cleaner as well. My cleaner never did crap, then got ate by my sally. I'm debating whether or not to get another. lol
Wow, now that is cool. 8)
I can speak from experience on this topic. Its much easier to use a natural solution(skunk cleaner) then the solutions that the LFS will sell you. I had my fair share of ich and after I got my skunk cleaners I havent had any problems. I think alot of things with saltwater tanks is this way.
