Either run down to a pet store and get one of those 10 gallon complete aquarium kits for $30 and start a QT tank, or increase the Garlic a bit and pray. The $30 is worth far more than loosing all your fish, and it will allow you to QT like you should in the future. Best of Luck!

Cheers

Well it's in a 55 gal (according to your profile). The heni banner fish is also cramped up. This is a lot of stress being cramped up, and stress is the main cause of ICH.

I guess I need to figure out how to change my profile because the Heni died a few months ago (as I posted here before) So any way thanks for the help with letting me know what is best for my fish with ick.

Aren't you the one with 10 tangs and 10 other fish in a 125?

I don't know if this applies to sw but with fw ich, a tank can be treated effectively with a temp increase alone. The fw parasites can not live in 86 degree water. By raising a tank to that temp and holding for a couple weeks, all parasites can be killed. Of course the temp increase has to be gradual and some fish can handle the stress better than others. Again, I don't have a clue if this could be tried in sw, but it might be worth checking into since this method can be done without medicating the tank.

Anyone know if this would work?
