So, since there is only one ich brand here I don't trust it as the store uses it and their fish die anyways....
I am using aquarium salt for freshwater fish, and have used it since two days ago when I noticed my new female Marge with ich. None of the other fish have it on them, not even her sister Tina. I raised the temperature, and have been gravel vaccuuming each day. Today, there is only one of six hitchhikers left on her, so I vaccuumed the gravel again and added dissolved salt and new water (20% water change with tap water conditioner).
How long would you say to do this treatement? I hope I sucked up any of the fallen parasites. I've already gotten the other tank under control (Spartan had a single spot of ich, to which I added salt, today it's gone and I vaccuumed the empty bottom tank). I won't stop for a few days anyways, but how long would you say? The females are getting much stronger, unlike the first day of treatment :)
And I know salt only kills the free swimming parasites. Which is why I ask... for how long? lol. The temperature is being slowly raised still (the gauge on the heater won't tell me what temp I have it set to...) and none seem to care. I also have a bubbler in there for extra oxygen for them.
