ICK help needed asap


My gold fish has ick really bad.
I was told by the store where I purchased them to use "aquarisol".
After a couple of days it seemed to be worse, so I went back for more advice.
This time they told me to remove the carbon from the filter.
So I have done that, and now I am worried that the cycle of ick will just keep repeating itself over and over.
Do I need to set up a heater for this tank?
I am at a loss as to what to do!

We have an article about ich and how to treat it in the article section; do go read that first. It should clear up a lot of your questions.

And if you kill the parasites off completely, they will not come back unless they are reintroduced.
