    Good luck with the meds - I used the same stuff when I had ich and it worked well. After I finished the last treatment, I waited a very long time before introducing more fish into the tank.
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT
    Remember: Our job is to take care of the water our fish live in

    Good to know you're happy with the Ich Attack.
    and this tank is fully stocked - has been since early Dec so I have NO plans for more fish LOL

    Possibly more snails .... just itching for a rabbit snail but I'll wait until spring.
    thanks!

    Sounds like it's time to buy a new tank? I'm trying to convince the wife why we need another one LOL.

    Glad to hear your fish are on the road to recovery.

    I'll be happy to help you convince the wife you need a new tank but no more for me, thanks! I've got all I can handle.

    And I hope we're heading toward recovery. Right now the Green sev is pretty heavily peppered with salt spots - he looks much worse than he did 2 days ago. Still, that's not unexpected that he'd look worse before he got better. All fish are acting fine - very little glancing, all eating well so the medication is hopefully working. Also hope to have the tank temp up to 86 tomorrow and will start with the vacs and W/C's and cut way back on the meds. again - fingers crossed

    So far, only the green sev, the yellow sev and 1 BP are showing ICH spots. The angel, the congos, the 2 geos the SW gourami and the remaining 2 BP's have no visible spots. so it looks as though the Ich Attack has, at least, slowed the progression. I was unable to clean the tank today as planned but will get aggressive tomorrow and finally get that temp up to 86. It's at 83-84 now because I'm afraid to go too high while using full doses of the medication - even though it's all natural.
    thanks again for the suggestions.

    As of today, I'm still seeing spots only on the green and gold sev and the largest BP. Not much progress as they have many visible spots - especially the BP. Because I was concerned, I consulted with a couple forum members and based on their expert guidance decided to change course a bit.
    I did another 50% W/C and vac today and discontinued the Kordon Ich Attack. I'm holding the temp steady at 86 but added a 1/2 dose of aquarium salt. Will add another 1/2 dose tomorrow if the fish are tolerating it. so 9 tablespoons diluted in tank water which I am adding slowly over the course of the day. I'll do the same tomorrow for a total of 18 T which is equivalent to 1 T per 5 gallons.
    With luck, this will be over in 7 - 8 days.
    thanks

    Good you are taking more steps as needed. Ick gets into the gills and can smother them so you simply can't allow it to continue on too long without changing gears. I've heard several complaints about Korton's here so hopefully your results will be better.

    thanks for that. It's so difficult to know what to do sometimes. that's whayt I LOVE this forum. Appreciate all the wisdom and experience and willingness to share.
    Moved the snails out of the tank as I'm also told they don't tolerate salt well. They look pretty big in the 5 gal qt LOL

  10. Default very happy to report ...

    ...that the ich spots are GONE! I'll keep the temp at 86 for more days then gradually start lowering back to 79 or 80. I think I'll do a W/C and vac tomorrow but not replace the lost salt so that it will only take a couple more W/C to get it out of there. All the fish look good and are eating great! They're a little grumpy with each other in the high heat but over all, it could have been much worse as far as aggression. the littlest BP started to show some smudgy stress spots but they are gone already

    Unfortunately, it looks like I'm going to lose my snails despite all efforts to avoid it. Have them in a qt with a filter and bubbler and heater but they don't look good. Each day I check them and they're laying on the bottom open, haven't moved from the previous day. Yet when I fish them out, they close back up again so there's still some life there. We shall see.
    Thanks again for everyone's input
    Looks like I'm going to get through this without any fish losses!!
