its ich

hey everyone,
ive found the culprit. Ich....ive had this before and it was difficult to treat. My technique was to put the fish in a freshwater bath then in a hospital tank. Another one of my fishes contracted it but lasted the storm. right now i have to go to work and would hope by the time i return the fish will be ok and ill have some good advice to go off of. Pls help ive had some of these fish for years. Ive read all the stuff on ich and would rather prefer personal experience.

Quarntine, raise temps a bit, add garlic to your food, and treat the hospital tank. You'll need to remove all your fish from your display to prevent them from contracting it, and your display will have to be fishless for quite a while. There's a bit of controversy regarding freshwater dips.
