And raise the temperature up to 90 for no more than 10 days do a 30% water change right after finishing treatment making sure you vacuum all the bottom however if you can see spots on the body be ready for the worst

Thank you everyone. Sounds like I may be on the right track to getting rid of the infection. I have the heater in the tank and slowly raising the water temp and I have already put some Ich medication in there. After one dose and the slight temp change I swear I can see those things falling off. I will do a 50% water change in a couple days unless by some miracle I Ich is off my babies. After the treatment period and when the guys look healthy again should I do 100% water change and soak everything the very hot water? Except the fish of course. What are their chances of survival?

note, there are heat resistant ich strands. so i would recommend a medication treatment over a heat treatment.

Thanks FishyFish, I am using Ich medication and trying to raise the water temp. So far I can't get the water above 84 I'm determined to beat this and save my new boys. I am so glad to be a part of this forum with so many people that have experience. I am very new to fish world and I love it. It's very relaxing, that is when you're not battling an infestation.

84 will still speed the life cycle and help. I would always try a conservative treatment before jumping straight to medications, since the chances are good they will work.
