I think you should do the salt treatment first. Meds are a last resort :o

I started using Rid-Ich Plus and he's doing much better now. Most of the spots have fallen off, and he's more active.

Great to know that it works well (will keep it in mind if I ever have to deal with ick again)! Wishing your boy a speedy recovery :)

Keep the treatment going for a few days to a week after the cysts have all dropped off. The fish may be clear but the ich parasite could still be alive.

The meds worked, and Nebula's feeling much better! He always comes to the front of his bowl when I sit at my desk and likes to watch me.

I managed to get some good pics and not so good (blurry) pics this afternoon! He wouldn't stay still! He wasn't feeling overly fond of the camera today...
