I don't quite understand the whole ich magnet thing. If you use proper qt for livestock it is possible to have an ich free tank and it doesn't really matter if some fish are more prone to show signs of it or not.
I'd personally have skipped the powder brown in a 75 though, especially with a hippo already in there. What do you feel the last one died of? Did it have any visible wounds?
Not sure why it died. No visable wounds. It actually started lookin bad on the drive home. When I got home and started to drip acclimate the fish,I thought he had died. After 3 hours of acclimation he appeared much better.
I put him in the tank and he acted ok health wise,but like a caged rat.
2 hours later,dead.
Also this fish was quarantined for me at the LFS where he runs copper. The other fish were already established in the tank with no visable signs of Ich.
Not sure how to quarantine any better ,so why the Ich?:huh:
