My hippo has had ick for 2 months minimum. The whole give them garlic and healthy foods just does not work. My hippo has been eating algae sheets with garlic and anything else I feed with no issues . Still has had no effect on the parasite not one bit. It may help them fight it off initially but I will not kill the ick it will be waiting in your tank to infest the next stressed out fish. Not trying to be rude but im going through this myself and I can tell you more action is needed than the garlic myth if you want to get through this . Hope it all works out for you .

Unfortunately its how most(including me) of us learned...

Your doing the right thing,,and in a few months when your tank is back to its beautiful self it won't matter how sad it looks ATM
Good luck and maintain 1.009 for the whole treatment

Glad to hear you changed your mind. Just like ft I learned the hard way . Good news is none of your fish have to die because ick is not a death sentence for fish as long as you treat it early . Good luck and keep us posted.

Just leave them in the display . They can't survive hypo and they won't get ick either so your fine .
