well i dont believe in euthanizing fish at all... are you putting in 1 tablespoon of aquarium salt for every 5 gallons? what treatment are you using? maybe try a different treatment and see if it will help at all.. i would raise the temp. to like 85 degrees if you can..they can tolertate that..are you doing water changes? i would do about 25 percent a day..and if you have a carbon filter the carbon is taking the meds out so take the carbon out.. i hope your fish's ich goes away

i personally wouldnt have used the medication.. i just feel like thats not a natural remedy, but i would actually stop the medicine... just raise the temp, keep adding the salt, take the carbon out, and maybe get a small bubbler because the oxygen in the tank will get lower since your raising the temp.. so you need more surface agitation.. you can take a little water our so the filter hits the water harder
