Some people swear by upping the temp and adding salt others use the meds they sell at the store. I have been lucky enough to not have to deal with this yet also but I have some aquarium salt on hand just in case.

Tried meds but the meds killed fish. I use salt/heat now.

Quick Cure works great. Just run charcoal afterwards.
