Hi everyone.

It’s been a while since I posted. The ICH has all been dealt with. I have slowly lowered the temp back down to 76 and my lone neon tetra has been doing great for a week and a half. Water parameters are 0.25/0/20 (was 0/0/20 two days ago) so I just did a 50% water change. I will check my nitrate in a couple hours again to make sure it’s went down. Assuming it has, how many neon tetras can I safely add today?

With just the one fish in it? Then definitely add like 5
Yeah, I added 8 originally but my parameters were not good, ICH took hold, and I lost 7 of my tetras. That has all been dealt with appropriately and now everything is good so I’m ready to add some again.

Well so far we are 0 for 2. We checked our local pet store and they were treating their tetra tank for something, not ich she said, so they wouldn’t sell anything out of that tank. Totally understandable. Next stop, Petco. We looked at their tetras and I saw a couple spots on a fish here and there so we said no way. We are now off to Petsmart to see what their tetras look like. If they don’t look good then our tetra will remain a lone tetra for a while.
