    im never gonna get anything done.
    now besides all my other projects/appointments/work i had to quarantine my entire fish tank because my huge pleco recently got ich/ick.

    now i have to administer an ich/ick treatment plus coppersafe to the tank everyday for a minimum of 14 days.

    since the ich/ick parasite is is free-floating in addition to being present on the host fish i cant just quarantine the pleco.

    but since i have a big collection of tetras, i can only give 1/2 the dosage a day, so now its extended to a minimum 28 days.

    :buck: :buck:

    Would you rather follow the dog around the yard
    waiting for a steaming fresh stool sample for the vet??

    yeah,
    but now all the fish have it.

    turns out it was at stage 2.
    the ick cysts break off the fish and live in the gravel for a day and then look to find a new host to restart the cycle.

    now over the next 8 days i need to empy & replace 25% of water and give a salt treatment.
    in additin to giving medication 3 times a day and keeping light off.

    and keeping the tank at exactl 82 degrees/

    plus vacuming the gravel daily replacing filter inserts daily (mondo expensive)

    well
    after spending $70+ on medication, medicated food, salt, antidotes, preventatives, artificial slime, and preforming daily water changes, it looks like they are gonna pull through :)

    unfortuntly, its still at phase 2 going on 3, so things can change ???

    Damn, man. That sucks.

    The closest thing I have to a pet is a Robo-Vac. Sometimes I yell at it when it hits my feet. :eek:


    Maybe I should get a cat or something....
