Update: I started the treatments today. I am discontinuing the PH decreaser as of tomorrow and I will follow through with the Ick treatment until next Sunday when I will do a water change and start regular water changes again after that. My temperature is only going to stay at around 84 until tomorrow and then I will start dropping it back off slowly until it gets to 80. I was told by numerous sites that doing this with the temp will speed up the process of the ick. I'm still torn on the salt issue but I feel that will be resolved as was the PH decreaser. So thank you for everyone's help. I will look into the Indian Almond leaves further and I'll keep everyone posted, just in case they wanted to know.
Oh BTW, when I got home from errands tonight I fed my Phoenix a few freeze dried bloodworms and he followed my finger around like old times, so he's perked up a bit since yesterday.
