Kordon Ich-Attack?? help

Hello I am sad to say that I have discovered some small dots in my tank aka ich. I just wanted to see if anyone has has used Kordon Ich-Attack. I bought some and have been using it for two days as directed.

To cut to the chase I wanted to see if this product works. Ask others they're opinions on how to treat ich and/or any recommendations of products. Thanks

tank specs
55gallon, fluval 305, marineland heater
3 discus, 12 tetras, 2 rams and ghost shrimp
live plants, drift wood and river sand

I tried it years ago with no effect on my outbreak. I would skip the chemicals slowly raise the tank temp to 86 degrees, keep it there for 2 weeks, add aquarium salt at a dosage of 1tlbs per 5 gallons and lastly perform daily water changes of 25% with gravel vac to remove the parasite as it falls of the fish.

When you raise the heat that high the oxygen levels drop so adding a air stone or pointing your canister output to the surface will help.

ya i bought a couple bottles, it kinda works when you use 200% ratio , every 8 hours. but thats 25 bucks and i probly woulda got 2 more before it was enough. i got jungle ick2 for loaches and sensitive fish, and used 2 bottles after the ich attaCK. THE REASON IS I DIDNT WANT TO STAIN MY LIFT TUBES AND WHATNOT, and both these products will not stain. i think ich attack will work if you use double the dose at least every 8 hours, but before i went broke i used the jungle ick2 and hurried the process up. i also raised temp and used salt. props for trying to make a green-friendly product that doesnt use chemicals, on kordons behalf.any one else try kordons ich attack?

I have been using the API ich meds and they fish look and feel a lot happier. The water is a lil blue at st but then it clears up. I'm using 25 ml everyday I'm my tank.
