Jumpinghjack66...

One of our resident gurus, Allivymar, has posted an excellent article on treating Ichthyophthurius. It is well worth reading and taking to heart:

I personally don't use salt when treating Ich but I do use 1/2 the recommended strength of Aquari-Sol. So far the combination of the Aquari-Sol and the heat treatment has rarely failed.

I don't have clown loaches but I do have Yo-Yo loaches and Schistura sp. loaches and the Aquari-Sol doesn't seem to have affected them at all.
