Do you have a wall bubbler in there? Higher temps means less oxygen. Agitated waters help create more oxygen.

I'm sorry, I wonder if the ich was too advanced by the time you started treatment.

We need to have a clearer understanding of what is going on here with respect to treatments.

First, when did the ich first appear, and how have you treated it (please be detailed)?

What is the pH and nitrates?

What sized tank, and what fish were in it, and for how long?

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If youíre going to take it under your wing then youíre responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
