well did you add any fish recently? Ick doesnt come out of nowhere. Start treating for ick eimmeddiately and take the carbon outof your filters
Agreed...hollyfish2000 said:I hope you really didn't flush your OB peacock down the toilet. That is not a humane way to deal with a problem fish. You can return them to the LFS, list them as a give-away on Craigslist or, if you have to, humanely euthanize them using clove oil.
That's not true. I use clove oil and tank water for euthanasia, and the fish do not react to it at all. I place them in a container of tank water first, then add drops of clove oil until the fish goes to sleep. I then put the lid on the container and place it in the fridge.fishmasterxl said:My tank had ick and so did the OB Peacock. You try giving away a fish with Ich to your LFS and see what happens. They'll take the fish and Kill it. I'll remember the clove oil for next time. I have some right now. Have you ever gotten clove oil on your skin before? It burns and causes inflammed itching. Is that any way to kill something? Your better off with a magnifying glass and a hot sun!
