With that stock you should be able to use temperature to treat ich. Just slowly raise the temp to 86 and maintain until 3 days after the last spot is gone.

Be careful with the meds they could kill off your BB. I would do as stated raise the temp to 86 but leave it there for at least a week after the last spot is seen. It worked for me.

Yeah it usually works, in fact I've never had it not work. I wouldn't raise the temp to 86 and treat with paraguard though, it might be too much stress for the fish.

Mumma.of.two way!

This is what she told me. Best for Fish!



To treat:
Increase temp slowly to 86-88F
Increase aeration
Increase water changes and gravel vacs atleast 3 times a week. more if possible
Leave temp up for at least one week after last spot is seen
Slowly decrease temp to normal
You can add a little salt if you like. It can help avoid infection in the sites where the ich leaves the body of the fish. Plenty of clean water helps a avoid this also.

I did this and almost all my Ich is gone already and its been 2 weeks.
