When it comes to ich the treatments work the best the sooner you can start them meaning the sooner you notice that you have the ich and the sooner that you start the treatment then it is less of a hassle. with scaless fish then you can read on the back of the pack and it says to cut the treatment in half. I have heard that the kordons is really good I havent personally used it I have only used A.P.I. super ich treatment.

I read and caught uo, your not overstocked yet .Make sure you get the kordon ORGANICS ick attack and rehome the pleco.your bottom fish have it worse than the others because alot of ick fall to the floor. Start slowly increasing your tank as you go out to get the med if its 82 this accelerates the ick hatching so the med can work on the live ick.That very salt mix si what a breeder recc to me for FW fish, but its all your sharks need at this point as they mature they need a lil' more.

your fish should be ok as long as you follow the directions on the product that you buy go with the kordons I just dont know who carries it and ya your fish will be ok untill the morning you just dont want to wait a few days or anything and the treatment will take a few days normally I think a good treatment will take probably about 14 days.
