How to remove Aquarium Salt
I recently had a major outbreak of Ich in my tank, i've raised the temperature to 86 degrees and and treating it with salt. I have clown loaches which are sensitive to salt.
From my understanding what makes them sensitive is not being introduced from salt but removing them from salt. Is there a procedure for removing salt in your aquarium so that these sensitive breeds do not get too stressed? or even die?
Any help is appreciated.

Salt does not evaporate from the tank along with water. I'd recommend doing frequent, partial water changes to remove it. 10-20% every day for two weeks will be quite adequate.

Thank you very much, this kind of information is often times very hard to find. I find this forum to be the greatest source of information.

Is there an absolute minimum amount of salt needed to kill ich? I'm seeing some signs of stress and I haven't even reached 1 table spoon yet. I've seen 1-3 tablespoons recommended for ich treatment.

I wouldn't use more then one tablespoon. This should be enough, you might just have to treat for longer... But if your seeing signs of stress then don't add anymore.
