If you use salt, and do the daily water changes, don't forget to replace the salt in the water you remove. There is a sticky on this forum for how to use salt, somewhere. I'd check that out. My memory is dose with 1 tsp for 5 gallons, wait 24 hours, do the same dosage again, if the fish are tolerating well the first dosage. Wait another 24 hours, and do a 50 percent water change, replacing the salt you took out. But I can't remember exactly. It did work. Yes, you must increase temps as much as the fish can tolerate, but do that slowly. My tank was up to 86 degrees. Clean water will prevent this.
