My fancy goldfish tank recently came down with ICH (really only 1 fish) He was acting funny, and then I saw a ton of spots on him. I kind of pannicked, and went to the LFS and bought 2 diff ICH meds without researching. I ended up using Super Ich Cure from API (powder packets) The main ingrediant in it is Melachite Green. I read later that it can ruin you biological filter. What does this mean? I have an Aquaclear 70. Does it just mean I need to cycle the tank again? Get a new filter? get some new bio balls? (little rocks that come with AQ filters) The other ingredient is Nitrofurazone. This is/was my first bout with ICH. or any fish disease. I raised the temp to 84, dont really want to any higher (goldfish) I am more interested about the MG and biological filtration, greatly appreciated if someone has some knowledge about this...Thanks.
