I was at a local pet store today and the store owner suggested "blacking- out" the tank. I was wondering if anyone had any opinions on this, they swore by it, but for obvious reasons I am a little unsure of taking pet store persons advice. So just wondering about this.

I am seriously considering trying the salt method because I really don't think the ich medicine is working, is it possible that I have a resistant form of the disease?
What medication exactly are you using? And did you raise the temp, and to what?

Ich takes at least a week to deal with.

The only benefit of a blackout would be reducing fish stress.

I am using API ich medicine and yes I did raise the temp it is at 88*F, okay they don't seem stressed the black tetras are not dashing nor are any of them hiding and they all have a very healthy appetite. I am a little worried, I am passing my one week mark.

I would just leave things alone (except for regular water changes). Keep the temp at 88F. Do not add any medication.

When was the last water change?

If ammonia and nitrite are zero and remain zero, you can go to once a week water changes, half the tank. Maintain the higher temperature for 10 days. If ammonia or nitrite rise, back to daily WC's with Prime.
