My tank has ich and it's my clown loaches that I noticed first. I've raised the temp to 86 and I've added salt. It has been three days and the loaches are looking worse. Is there hope? Should I try something else? All of cichlids seem to be doing fine. I haven't had ich in years, but I've never successfully saved a clown loach. Any suggestions?

I've tried the elevate temp and salt thing with my womens Gourami tank with no success in fact we lost a lot of fish. I finally resulted in using ich clear, because it is harsh on smooth skins such as loaches botia's etc. thats why I was hesitant. So the Ich clear worked. Relativly quick results. Just my experience. Others may differ in exsperience. Plus you need to find out why this occured. Over crowding, under filtration a sick fish introduced, and possible some stress nitrites ammonia etc. :? GOODLUCK.

i have twice got rid of ich on loaches 86F heat and 1Tper 5g salt worked, but i took 10 days without a water change. I have also had success with Ich Attack (all natural remedy) it dyed the water brown but it did get worse before it got better, by day 4 it had started looking better. Good luck and good riddance
