Ich, have had problems with it. The folks on here turned me onto a way to treat it without meds that seems to work very well.

Get some aquarium salt and raise the temp a few degrees every 4 hours or so till the water temp is around 80F... Raise it only like a degree or two at a time over a day.

Keep the temp high like that for about 2 weeks after the last sign of ich.

Lot of folks here very much more knowledgeable than I am on the subject.
