    I've been waiting for them to have it again. I'm looking for a tank to start building my own sump.

    How is Petco to blame for you loosing your fish? And how is Houdini doing? Did you sell it already?

    Lol, all fish have Ich. All it takes is a stressful event, such as adding new fish, to cause a outbreak to occur. Hopefully, next time you'll have a QT set up to help avoid stuff like this! Sorry about all the loses, it always sucks to lose a pet :(

    no not ALL fish have ich and you can clear your tank and fish from ich. keep your tank fish free for 8 weeks ich will be gone from that treat your fish for ich (if you have a qt tank) and you will fish with no ich and a tank with no ich. and after 4 fish lost i am setting up a qt tank wet to petco on thrusday and got myself a 40 gal breeder and a heater for im taking the hob filter that came with my 55 and putting in the 40 and i have a light that will work for fish to put on it. but that still doesnt change the fact that i will not buy another fish from petco.
