Having had my clown loaches and two pictus cats killed by ich I have to start again. I am taking Joe Loaches advice and planning to add salt to the tank and raise the normal temp to 80-82F. The catch is I have an angel, 2 otto cats & 7 danios still alive and being rather attached to them I don't want to kill them. I plan to add 2 more pictus cats or similar (talking cat maybe instead) and cannot find out if these fish can handle salt at concentrations of 1 tsp/g that the loaches can.

Can anyone advise me or does anyone have a similar setup?
