Can dying or melting chaeto be the cause of my ick outbreak in my tank? I finally have the right light in there but about 3/4 of it has melted away.

It could have an effect... if the chaeto's decaying, it could have an adversly effect water quality, therefore stressing the fish/lowering their immune systems. However, check to see if something else is stressing the fish out (tankmates, ect).

 

Clean out the mushy parts of the chaeto, keep water quality high, QT the sick fish and them high quality foods (adding garlic to entice them to eat) to help them battle the ick.
