Ich day 6…

I usually wait until the evening to write my blog (after work) but this morning I turned on the tank light (I only do this to check on them I leave it off during the day) Helen is just covered and now Nikki has noticeable ich on her tail and they just both look lousy!  


We can’t see them suffer anymore, waiting on this salt treatment to show any signs of working.. So I picked up some API Super Ick cure powder.  We took the carbon out of the Fluval Canister and the filter cartridge out of the power filter.   I changed out 10% of the water and did not re-add salt for the amount taken out, and proceeded in adding the medication.

We really are at our wits end with this reading online all I see is people having success with the salt treatment after a short time and Nikki and Helen have just become so much worse I’m actually heartbroken over it all.

We are obviously counting on this API ick cure working now other wise it does not look at all good for our girls (they could be boys but…. )  Still eating and swimming about just fine as usual… Please work  😦

Below is just a picture of Helen because she is such a photo hog…. ♥
