i am proud to say that i have finally been able to cure ich! in the past if my fish got ich, no matter what i do, they'd jus die. what happened was, i have this mini pond outside my house (will post pics soon) and i had one gold fish left (dam cats) so i decided to go to my LFS to buy 2 more! they looked pretty healthy to me (no signs of illness) and BAM! 1wk later all 3 of them got white spots.. this time i wasnt gonna let the whitespots win so i looked online (Properly). i already had the meds so i could dose. what i did was first a 50% water change, then i dosed the recomended amount of meds, and turned the temporary heater to 30 deg. (BTW, i never knew in the past that u had to turn the temp up) so one day goes past, fish start to look even more sickly, the one black moor dies :'( (think he was too small so imune system wasn good) so a wk later, it looks like the fishes skin is rotting off, but i realised its the spots that was "Falling off"! so i did another water change and dosed with meds again and what do u know, 7 days later, no more white spots! so all i wanna say is for the novice ppl, ich can be combated, jus hav to know the method.
