I have tried Formulin 3 and traised temp to 86. Loaches died.
Re-stocked. Temp still at 86. Loaches developed ich. I tried Aquarisol. No luck. I'm down to two clown cloaches with ich, and now my bala sharks arte starting to get ich.

The tank is 72 gallons - been running for about 3 mos. 0 amonia, 7.0 ph, nitrites and nitrates lowest level on chart.

I did 30% water changes each time before adding the meds.
