More Ich-This time it is FW

So now I have ich in my FW tank.

How should I treat this, and what do you recommend using?

Thanks!

Oh no!
I'd recommend heat and salt.

They should be fine with salt The tetras can be a bit sensitive so add it slowly and/or use a half dose.

Great, thanks!

Can I just use the salt that I use for my SW tanks?

I wouldn't. You'll want FW treatment salt (kosher works as well). Nothing with iodine or anti caking agents.
