Welcome to MonsterFishKeepers.com

The members of this forum have come together to share our knowledge and experiences of fish keeping. We want to answer your questions, offer advice and fill the galleries with pictures of the fish we have all grown to love.

We are a unique community of Fish Keepers who seriously take our hobby to extremes and the NEXT level. The majority of our fish collections include RARE & EXOTIC Species of all sizes, BIG FISH with BIG APPETITES and BIG TANKS.

      I just bought a java fern from store.
      And downside is that the plant is housed with fish in it and i guarantee that my new fern has ich careers.

      How can I remove ich careers from my new java fern? Can i use a pressure hose to get rid od ich careers?

      Best bet would be to just quarantine the plant for a bit before placing into your intended tank...

      Another more extreme option would be a (maximum) 5% solution bleach dip for 2 mins, followed by a very good rinse in some water with an overdose of Prime or something similar to remove any residual bleach afterwards...

      The only problem with a bleach dip is that it may coz your plant some problems depending on how well it holds up, also be sure to keep the roots out of the solution if possible...

      Should be enough time and keep the temps at 86 to speed up the life cycle. Without a fish host it’ll die.

      Agree with the above, keeping temps up and the time allocated should be enough to kill any ich...
