How do I get rid of ich in a 10 gallon community tank? I saw that one of my platies had it and read that all the fish were contaminated.

This should help.

Let us know if you have any questions after reading the article!
Agree, mostly. I used just heat - not a fan of adding salt as I have corys and loaches.

If you raise the heat make sure you increase aeration. If you have a HOB filter, drop the water level so there is more splash, or add an airstone. Just watch them as you raise the heat to see if there are any adverse reactions. Make sure you keep the heat raised and do water changes with good vacuuming consistently and for at least 10 -14 days.

I've beaten ich with just heat. Remember when you lower the heat, do it gradually.

Good luck!
