Welcome to Fish Lore Cory If you haven't done so already, please read about the Nitrogen Cycle in the Beginner's Articles (which can be found in the Freshwater Beginners board).

hI Cory. ich is a very common problem that is easily cured, but you should really get yourself a quarantine tank for treating your fish. Some fish like your dojo loaches don't like the ich med. Good luck with your new tank

Welcome - newbie from another newbie - wow I am struggling to remember all the lingo and terminlogy used in this field. Let alone getting to know the name of the different fish species. I happen to have 3 molly fish oops or is it Mollie - anyway - I noticed that the one Mollie looked round like a ball - frantically I called David Fish - Fish is just my nickname for the seller at the shop where I bought my fish tank from. I separted the Molly from the rest and within a short time I was able to resque ten babies as mommy Mollie had a feast eating the others - little did I know that the babies become a meal to their mother - in shock I saw her eating some and as quick as I could removed the babies - I acted purely on instinct - thank the Universe for being a mother - only then I called David Fish - as I am in Hong Kong and a South African who can speak only a few words in Cantonese or Mandarin had to find a way to communicate between hand gestures, and grabbing people around me to try and made Daviod to understand what I was asking - shew at least we now have some form of understandable communication between us.

thanks for learning from you

Elize and greetings from a hot and very humid Hong Kong

Welcome, cory! ;D

Ich is very frustrating, I lost an adorable lemon tetra and my beloved angel to it. Hope you end up having much better luck from now on.
