I have to treat both tanks aww well Ill make sure its gone!
Once it spreads to the body is when things start really going down hill. That's the point I would say the fish is infested, and it's losing the battle...
Your talikng about the meds I thought you where talking about the heat method.It probably says a second treatment can be done. After 2 treatments, I would switch to another brand. Truthfully, if the first treatment didn't work I wouldn't use it again.
Yeah, the meds. With the heat, if it's still there after the 2 weeks, then you have a heat resistant strain and need to up the temp even higher for round 2. The one time 86 didn't work, I cranked it up to 90. Everyone and their mother will tell you to add an air stone. I never use one, even at 90 degrees and my quarantine filtration systems aren't spectacular.
ill leave it on tonight tommorow I'm gonna pick up some ich attackI treat all new fish for ich - I do a lot of heat treatments. I have not experimented to see how low I can go, so maybe lower than 86 will do the trick too. But, the lower you go, the more chance it's not going to work. If 82 is as high as you can go, I think you should turn the temp back down and treat with meds.
I used to use meds, when the fish got it. The only problem I ever had was it stained the silicone and some of the decor.
