Clown Loaches with ich!

One of my clown loaches has developed an acute case of Ich. I went down
to *3* LFS looking for Jungle Ich Guard 2 (for scaleless fish) with no
luck. The last place suggested I try Doc Wellfish's Aquarium Salt and
raising the temperature. I've read the salt treatment proceedure on
Loaches On-Line, but while this aquarium salt is made from "evaporated
sea salt," I'm not sure its the right type for the proceedure.

I also have Rid-Ich, but I'm hesitant to use it with the loaches (though
I suppose a half-dose can't hurt).

If anyone has suggestions I could sure use them. I'd like to start
treatment as soon as possible, but don't want to do a half-a** job at
it. :P
