    My pair of laetacara araguaiae are having some ick on their body right now. I am using ro mixed with tap water and the ph is 7.2. Just raised the temperature at 86F. They actually having fry with them and the fry is free swimming for one day now. Should I add some aquarium salt? Need advise please!

    Yes salt, heat and formalin will usually get rid of it. Fortunately it's an easy disease to recognize and treat. The fry may or may not survive, but if this batch fails they'll spawn again.
