Spotted my first case of ICH on friday morning..treated the tank friday night..increased temp to 82 ..I seemed to have spotted it early and I thought by sat night it was in remission ..second treatment last night..got up this morning to it worst than ever!!. Dunno if to go ahead and add salt as ric and others have advised or just to give it time..other tank parameters are OK (PH,amonia,nitrite,nitrate) so i cant seem anything that could be lowering their imunitiy. I am overstocked ATM so that could be the only factor..I am setting up a new tank 77 gallon tank right now but its to early to move fish there yet. I am using about 75% of the rec dose and the product is called W3S white spot terminator.
