i was just kidding with you. Ive heard good things about the jungle tank buddies ich clear... is that what you have? id try those first. Just dont go mixing meds... theyre pretty much all the same from what ive read. I agree with zagz though, its alot better to try and treat with heat, but you gotta do what you gotta do and work with what you have... I'd start with the tablets and hope for the best

I used the QuICK cure cause it was dosed for one gallon (the tank now is 1G, I bought him a 5G today though, so I hope it's done cycling by the time his ich is gone!) and says add one drop a day. Next time I will treat with salt and heat. Trust me, I don't like to give my animals chemicals if I don't have to. My dogs even eat preservative free food. Even though it's a little more expensive, it's worth it.

Also, in the future, I will be able to use a heater in his 5G.
