My flowerhorn was showing ich when I got him home from the store 5 days ago. I started using paraguard 4 days ago full doses daily and raised the temp to 86. Since then it’s spread all over him with no signs of slowing down. My flowerhorn is beginning to linger around the bottom when he was very active the past couple days. He’s still eating but not coming to the surface when I go to feed. He goes looking a while after I drop some in and eats the old pieces slowly as if he isn’t very hungry

ParaGuard only treats parasites. Ich is an external problem. You should get something that directly treats Ich such as Kordon rid ich.

Don't mix meds and the heat treatment - it can kill the fish. I'd quit the meds and continue with the heat treatment. Keep temp at 86 F and do daily gravel vacs and water changes. Do this for 2 weeks.
