I don't heat it. I can't but we have a hot house all year long and the water stays warm with it. I keep a gallon jug of fish water ready at all times so I could cool it a little if I needed to but I don't because I know it's going to cool as the house does at night.
ilovemyshiny, Yes, when I took Jessie #5 back on the 4th day with Ich the manager agreed that I may have brought home a sick fish to begin with, it wasn't to likely that it would get ich here in a tank of his very own in just 3 1/2 days.
On the water change reply from yesterday I did only small changes of water until #5 got ich then I did the full water change hoping it would help. I know now it probably made it worse. I've learned a lot from our little Jessie 5 and from all of you who have helped me through this.
You all deserve to be step mommies and daddies to Jessie 6. I wish she would stop naming them Jessie. I think I'm gonna have to give him a secret name too. He's a dark blue with a little red in his front fins. Any ideas?
