Lost no fish at 86 deg. None even seamed botherd. My fish in tank cosist of Tiger barbs, tin foils, bala sharks,clown loaches, yo yo loaches, sun catfish, and one 4 line cat. All delt with the heat just fine.
Good to know; we have very similar stock. I've got rams, barbs, clowns, yoyos and a pictus. Even my otos made it through the treatment....I hope that's the end of it. I'm sorry you lost your 4 line...they are such neat fish!
Lupes- I recall a post where bettababy said to put the salt directly into the aquarium. She was specific in her instruction to not premix and then add to the tank. I've gotta go hunt down that post....
I added my salt in the exact way you described...
