    Just wanted to give a words of encouragement. For whatever reason, I had an ich outbreak. I turned my heat up ultra slowly over three days to 86F because I was nervous and not always able to monitor the tank. Left it there two weeks. Now going to start lowering it also ultra slowly. Just my preference. :). That is ALL I did to the tank. No salt.

    100% survival rate, even fry. :eek:

    You can do it too! Good luck.

    That's great to hear! Glad the natural method worked! I hate adding chemicals if there is a natural way. :)

    It's one of the most common illness we will run into and the easiest to treat.
