I wish you people would stop saying it doesn't help when I'm sitting here with success doing this. Guess what...it helped!

Purple, again, it's very situation specific. I've heard people say garlic worked, I've heard absolutely ridiculous things that did work, but for a majority won't.

Exactly. So let him figure out what works for him from our suggestions rather than trying to tell him stuff doesn't work.

Purple, I'm saying the most efficient way for him to treat this as soon as possible is a copper treatment. There's tons of articles online that advocate that hypo salinity or copper are the easiest routes to take. If he just raised the temperature and the ich didn't die, he'd have a disaster on his hands

I'd be careful, ichs been known to show right back up. Preferably if you can set up a hospital tank you'd be much better off
