    fish medicine section?

    Can we have a fish/coral medicine section added to the forums? There are some new strains of Ick and it would be good if we had a spot to reference what therapies might be successful.
    We don't all have several books, they are expensive.
    Thanks

    Hi Gina, is a very good idea,
    We should create a corner for a fast
    Reference... but....
    The treatments should come from books...
    Because from aquarist to aquarist sometime are different..either because of different water parameters or different water quality...
    I'm still interested to buy the
    Expensive University book
    For the sake of learning...

    For sure you idea is something to consider

    We can certainly give the reference to the book like you did with me. It gives someone a place to start. The internet is not always the best place to start because we don't know where the info comes from.
    For instance you told me about the new form of ick and about the book it came from and which LFS worker told you about it. When I tried to google it, I could only find one reference online to the strain that was identified 2006 that was resistant to medication .

    not the worker at the LFS who told me to use low hypo salinity and another medicine and leave the fish in there for a couple of weeks
    but I contacted directly Bob Fenner.
    referring to a doctor working for fisheries,where discovered the new strain of ick
    he mentioned the book of Edward J. Noga ... is a book used in the university for the marine / fresh water biologist
    he mentioned some other guys about the quarantining process ... one of them is Goeman,

    the last up date version or the second edition is the book
    of the 2010...
    he mention some medicine that unfortunately they are not on the shelf anymore
