Hello guys my girlfriend has been battling ON HOW to get rid of itch (ICK OR WHITE SPOT), she´s been using Aquarisol but as soon as shes ends the treatment, the parasites are back on the fish.

Aquarium:
- 80l tank

FISH:
  • 3 blue ramirezi
  • 4 corys
  • Tetras
  • Khuli loaches

Filtration:
- Aquaclear 30

MEDICATIONS:
- Aquarisol raising temp to 29° for 10 days and waterchange withouth carbon. Then ICK (WHITE SPOT) came back after 10 days of treatment.

She bought SEACHEM PARAGUARD, but we´re not so sure how to use it, it says 1 capful for 40l it means i need 2 for 80l every day, but what about keepong the light on or not? What about waterchanges. Please help i feel really sorry for her and we do not know what to do, shes really sad please guys anyone could help me with SEACHEM PARAGUARD.

Thank you

Hope that helps.
Not a big fan of Paraguard or other medications. Most people (like your GF) have problems with it, by not continuing the treatment process long enough.

Hi - for what it is worth, I just battled Ick for the first time in the hobby for decades. The whole tank (10 fish in a 75g) got it. I don't think I caught it in time as it was really bad when I started the medication (seachem paraguard). I lost 3 fish the 2nd day of dosing and now (i think it has been 14 days later) the 7 remaining fish have no signs and look healthy. I am still monitoring them however they appear good. With that said as others mentioned meds are not always the best option, I think i have been lucky not dealing with issues like this over the years that my mind went right to meds, but after reading alot it seems heat/salt may be more effective. TO each their own as it seems there are multiple options to combat it. Good luck
