    If this was ich then keep it running hot for a week or so while dosing ammonia. During that phase start thinking about the root cause. Ich doesn't need to have a mortality rate this high unless there's big underlying issues.

    However, as pointed out above, it may well have been something different and you need to figure that out. Keeping it running hot and keep some ammonia in there while you discover the root cause.

    The frayed fins worry me....did you add a new fish recently, before the break out? Or were your barbs nipping each other? Tail rot plus ich sounds like something was seriously stressing out that tank.
    20 gallon with a male betta, neons, glowlights, and red cherry shrimp. (work in progess) Recently added a few LIVE plants and driftwood, Woooohoooo!

    I'm leaning towards a tear down at this point. I had added a new pictus cat which I believed contributed to the problem.

    It looked bigger than those spots.

    I probably added stress by missing a water change due to us having our second child. My nitrates had jumped to 50 when the pictus died. But I did a 50% change, and another 50% the next day to get them back in check. That was about 4 days before I started seeing issues.

    Barbs never really nipped at each other.
