Strange fish behaviour

So I live in Jakarta when usually the temp can get to 31C and all my fish are used to it (Yes! Including my rosy barbs and angelfish!)

But sometimes the water is around 26C before the ich came.

I bought a heater and aquarium salt to treat the ich and when I heat the water to 30C, my fish swims normally and never goes up. Usually when I come to my room to study, they will go up and beg for food in normal water temperature (24-26C) This time, no they just swim and only goes up to take an extra breath. Only my angel and goldies does that (Yes, I just realised that I'm not supposed to mix goldies with tropical fishes )

Any idea what is happening with my fish when the water is cold? Perhaps an unseen or inner ich?

When ever the water temp goes high you must also increase O2, aeration, like lowering water level if there is a hang on back filter (HOB filter) a couple /few cm for additional splashing, or add an air bubbler.

Ok, increased the O2. What does heat do to ichs and does salt kills the ichs? How long should I do the treatment, I've been doing 50% WC on Monday and today cuz I got the heater on Sunday.

Read this article and it will answer most all the questions. It explains the life cycle and care for treatment options.

Freshwater Ich? Yuck! - Aquarium Advice

Wikipedia also has some good info about the actual Ichthyophthirius multifiliis.

After that, if you have more questions let us know.
