Ich protocol?

Recommended Posts

It appears that at least 2 of my new guys have ich. What's the generally accepted protocol on treating this? I have aquarium salt but am unsure of the recommended dosage.

Hi :)

 

Raise the salt to 0.3%, in 0.1% increments. 

So add salt to 0.1%, then 12 hours later add the same amount again, and another 12 hours later add the same amount again and you will be at 0.3%.

0.1% is 1 gram per litre, or one teaspoon per gallon. 

 

I'd also advise slowly raising the temp to around 82f.

 

When you do a waterchange, add the salt for the amount of water you took out. 

 

Keep the salt and heat for at least two weeks after the last spot has disappeared.

 

 

Good Luck!
