ok thats good. 2tsp/gal of epsom salt, take out any live plants. keep it dark to help keep the fish not so stressed. i hopefully havent left anything out but i am also hoping some of the more experienced members come by to give you greater help

i know what you mean i had to deal with ick last week. and so far from what jkfish and OFL have told me, you are doing good i just dont know what to do with an aq heater lol as long as the temp is about 84' or 86' and water changes are done daily with epsom salt not exceeding ten days things should get better.
