Well, it takes about a week for the ich to basically break down your fishes' immune system- then secondary bacterial infections can take hold and kill him that way.
Either way, it's not looking good.

As a pet owner it is your responsibility to make time for your pet. I didn't have the time for my cat to get sick two years ago (infected abscess from a fight the silly thing got himself into :/ ) and need my attention almost every hour of the day but he needed it and I made the time for it.

You should go to the stores early so they are still open and you can pack later in the night when stores are closed. It sucks when things get in your way but you just have to pick yourself up and get things done.

Not really...
Using that would only make him more sick. It basically burns away the fishs' labyrinth organ (which they use to breathe air with) and will make it harder for them to get oxygen.

Also, overhead lamps DO NOT act as heaters. They usually heat the top of the water, and don't make it to the middle.

Tell your parents it's an emergency, and hopefully they'll drive you.

You don't have a walmart or anything like that? They usually carry AQ salt.

Yup, and it's cheaper than pet stores!
