loaches and Ich

Hi there:

You've probably had this question before...3 of my 5 loaches have ich. The medication I bought is called Phenoxine. It has 2-Phenoxyethanol 17.6 ml/l, Formaldehyde 37% 28ml/l, Brilliant Green 0.24 g/l & Malachite Green 0.08 g/l. I have been told that with tretras and scaleless fish I have to use it a half strngth which I have done. How long should it take for the ich to clear up? And is there something else that can be used? The temp has been raised also to 28C.
