I used Ammo-Loc up until a month ago after learning it gives you false readings,and I am also fighting Ich. The only difference is you are using salt where as I'm not. I hope you find the answer (if you do let me know).

Hang in there man,

Well, two of my fish are beginning to look scrawny. And one of those two has developed redenned fins, which I think might be because of the Ich. She was the first one that had visible signs of the parasite.

In case anyone was following up on this.

4 out of 5 of my fish made full recoveries from the Ich. Some of them still dart around occasionally though.

The first platy that I saw the first signs of Ich... She's not doing so good. I mean, she's doing way better than she was. There was so many times that I had to get up close and personal just to check to see if she was breathing. She still ate at that time, but last night when I fed them I'm not sure if she ever did eat. She darts around the aquarium every once in a while, but she... swims sideways. As in her body is turned side ways. When she darts around her body moves about in odd ways. Is it too late for her to recover? Should I just... remove her?
