I had an Ich outbreak about 2 weeks ago and have gone through lot's of water changes and have used medicine called clear quICK. Everything seems to be ok now and I would like to add a pair of kribs next weekend. Everything OK?

Thanks

Wait a little longer . What fish do you currently have? The question is what cased the Ich out break new fish added? To many fish in system? Weak fish added? Tell me more to this outbreak that you have that's happening to cause this problem.Such as temp. and water parimeters, How many fish where infected? How many was lost?Stress load, Etc. Need all details to help in this matter.

Deff need to slow down and not be anxious to add new fish. ICH is always present in small numbers in the tank no matter what. It usually attacks fish that are stressed from maybe sudden temp change and the addition of new fish, so I suggest quarantine any new fish for at least 2-3 weeks.
